Accelerating the Path to Net Zero Through Collaborative Project Delivery Models

In the coming years, laboratory buildings are expected to make up a substantial proportion of new development as demand in the science and technology sector remains high. Achieving zero carbon performance is uniquely challenging for laboratory buildings, and these challenges vary between the private and public sector domains. These unique challenges in both domains can be overcome in a time and cost-effective manner through a collaborative design and construction delivery model.

This presentation will explore two case studies of high-performance lab facilities in the public and private sector domains, currently in the design phase, with the following objectives:

  • Describe the integrated and collaborative design delivery models deployed (Design Build & Design Assist) and how they created unique opportunities and positively contributed to the project goals.
  • Describe how early design collaboration was leveraged to overcome the unique challenges encountered by the design team in both the private and public sector domains.
  • Provide a selection of the emerging, low carbon building technologies explored for the project(s), such as advanced forms of heat recovery and electrochromic glazing.
