Practical Laboratory Planning.
Ferguson, W. R.
This book is intended as a guide for people who are planning chemistry and physics research laboratories. It deals with the importance of effective communication between client and architect, the value of preliminary planning, and the role of the project officer. It also discusses the size and layout of individual laboratories, the design of laboratory fittings and services, fire and safety precautions, and the many things to be considered in the design and layout of the building. The book includes descriptions and technical details of a number of laboratories already built in Australia, Europe and the United States. The material is arranged in nine chapters: Responsibility of the Client, Laboratory Planning, Design of Building, Laboratory Fittings, Services, Fire and Safety Protection, CSIRO Laboratories, Overseas Laboratories, and What of the Future? The three appendices are The Cost of Research, A Restricted Survey of Floor Loading, and Aniline Bench Top Preparation. (PEB)
