Join the AIANY Science and Research Facilities Committee and Cerami Associates for a panel discussion on acoustics, vibration, and technology for science and research facilities. Although the focus will be on laboratories, discussed topics are applicable to almost all building types. Through discussion and demonstrations, participants will gain a better understanding of approaches to building design that can create better spaces acoustically, reduce vibration levels, and integrate technology systems.
