The architect should pay close attention to building air intakes and exhausts so as not to allow re-entry of laboratory exhaust into the building. In addition, the location of the building with respect to the surrounding buildings' air entry and exhaust is equally important. Location, location location!
We're in the planning process for a new science building (we're a two-year community college with a strong STEM reputation and a very small informal undergrad research program). Does anyone have any lessons learned or other recommendations as we start working with the architects when it comes to planning out our chemistry labs?
