A Laboratory Service Ceiling: Optimizing Sustainability, Safety, Health, and Flexibility

September 20, 2018
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Eastern Daylight Time


This presentation discusses the physical and technical characteristics of service systems via ceiling and their quantifiable benefits regarding design (e.g., major components, systems integration, and installation) and sustainability (e.g., energy conservation, reconfiguration flexibility, and safety and health impact). Applications of laboratory service ceilings in new construction, renovation, and animal housing will also be examined. Finally, the presentation explores laboratory service ceiling modifications and anticipated future technology upgrades.

After viewing this presentation, attendees will understand:

  • The potential energy conservation that can be achieved with service ceiling systems by integrating advanced technology.
  • The embodied flexibility in service ceiling designs minimizing future reconfiguration costs.
  • Unique design features resulting in improvement to safety and health levels.
  • Installation and construction advantages of service ceiling solutions.
