The NC Triangle Chapter hosted a chapter meeting on February 13. Several speakers gave presentations and recapped the 2019 I2SL Annual Conference. The event was a success and received some great feedback from attendees!

“The I2SL February 2020 meeting was incredibly useful especially as an owners rep. The sessions were highly relevant to lab owners and designers from both a design and operational standpoint. The caliber and experience of presenters and also of those in attendance led to some really great discussion and very insightful comments on lab design. I really appreciated the depth of discussion which concisely covered everything from fire rated storage cabinets to lab building site location concerns.”—Ben Johnson, UNC Facilities

“The speakers were very knowledgeable in their fields and the information presented is extremely relevant for anyone working in the design and operation of research labs.”—Sue Nativi, Duke University Facilities Engineer

“Thanks for sharing! Great material. Really got us thinking.”—Weston Hockaday

Thanks to everyone who attended!
