The Design of Research Laboratories. Part I: A General Assessment. Part II: Air Conditioning and Conditioned Rooms.
Legget, R. F.; Hutcheon, N. B.
Design factors in the planning of research laboratories are described which include--(1) location, (2) future expansion, (3) internal flexibility, (4) provision of services, (5) laboratory furnishing, (6) internal traffic, (7) space requirements, and (8) building costs. A second part discusses air-conditioning and conditioned rooms--(1) air-conditioning for occupants, (2) air-conditioning for materials and operations, (3) effects of temperature change on relative humidity, (4) ventilation, air change, and air distribution, (5) costs of air-conditioning, (6) influence of glass areas, (7) winter relative humidities, and (8) planning implications. An annotated bibliography of 95 citations on laboratory design is included as an appendix. (RH)
