Noted Nanoscience Laboratory Design Expert to Speak at nanoTX'07
Dallas, TX | Posted on August 17th, 2007
With 30 years experience for research, government, industry and education facilities, his current and past clients for nanoscience-related laboratory projects include such prestigious organizations as MIT, Yale, the University of California System, the University of Texas System, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Maryland, Boulder, Colorado (Advanced Measurement Laboratory) and the Chevron and Petronis Oil Company, among many others.
"We are grateful John is willing to share his knowledge," said Cline Taplin, the nanoTX'07 executive who recruited him, "there is currently so much discussion of nano-safety that we really needed to address the subject at this year's event. John is a great addition to the exhibits we have from the EPA, NIOSH and Center for Disease Control. And Perkins+Will brings a much needed view that compliments the intense Environment & Health Summit taking place at the event both days."
Mr. Weinman's presentation will focus on how to ensure laboratory design successfully meets the complex needs of interdisciplinary nanoscience research teams --- without the benefit of "adequate" short or long-term programming knowledge --- while being responsive to limited capital budgets. He will address nanoscience-related facilities issues on a strategic level as well as discussing the specific design and construction challenges of three different types of nanoscience laboratory space, including:
Areas addressing fundamental investigations and carrying on process research at a "skunk works" level;
Spaces dedicated to characterization, imaging, and metrology; and,
Contamination-controlled environments where fabrication takes place.
Perkins+Will is recognized as one of the world‚s leading designers of science and technology-based facilities with a wealth of expertise in the highly technical design demands of nanotechnology, physical science, engineering research and teaching laboratories. As a fully integrated center of knowledge for the firm, the Nanoscience + Engineering Laboratory Group works in close association with other experts, project teams and offices throughout the Perkins+Will organization, applying its extensive knowledge and experience in integrating the programmatic and sophisticated equipment requirements of the engineering education and research disciplines to the design of the state-of-the-art, environmentally responsive facilities.
Established in 1935, Perkins+Will ( http://www.perkinswill.com ) is an integrated architecture, interiors, and planning practice recognized as the preeminent sustainable design firm in the country. Perkins+Will has the highest number of LEED® Accredited Professionals in North America (ranked by Building Design & Construction magazine), with nearly two thirds of the firm‚s 1,300 professionals accredited.
Perkins+Will serves clients out of offices in Atlanta, Beijing, Boston, Calgary, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Hartford, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Research Triangle Park, San Francisco, Seattle, Shanghai, Vancouver, Victoria and Washington, DC. The firm practices architecture, interiors, branded and planning + strategies with clients in corporate + commercial + civic, healthcare, higher education, K-12 education and science + technology. Perkins+Will routinely ranks among the world's top design firms and has received hundreds of awards, including the prestigious American Institute of Architects Firm of the Year Award.
nanoTX, presented this year by SIA, is the world's most comprehensive nanotechnology conference and exposition. The event highlights advances in nanoscience, explains how nanotechnology is being used today and how it will impact a broad range of industries tomorrow, including: electronics, energy, aerospace, defense, biomedicine, robotics, chemicals and more.
nanoTX has established a reputation for delivering solid content, compelling panel discussions, early-stage investment opportunities and a world-class roster of presenters. This year‚s signature Nobel Laureates Legends program sponsored by IEEE features a reunion of the original Nobel Prize-winning Buckyball discovery team - the breakthrough advancement that started the whole carbon nanotechnology and nanotube revolution we‚re seeing today, and into tomorrow.
