ORINDA, Calif., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Research Council of
Canada's National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT), Canada's high-profile
entry into the dedicated nanotechnology research building arena, will be
unveiled at Tradeline's Science Buildings Canada 2005 conference on May 30-31,
2005, in Ottawa, Ontario.
At this conference, Phil Haswell, Director of Facilities with the
University of Alberta, and Donna Clare, a partner with the architectural firm
Cohos Evamy, will describe the journey of this facility from concept to
development to commissioning. When completed this fall, the 22,600-square-
metre NINT will be one of the world's most technologically advanced research
facilities. Only five such buildings exist today.
The conference will also feature a host of newly constructed Canadian
research buildings and science teaching facilities that demonstrate
innovative, cost-effective solutions for a broad spectrum of science programs.
Building owners, users, project managers, architects, contractors, and
operations managers will gather to report on best practices and the latest
technologies being deployed at these facilities.
The Science Buildings Canada 2005 general sessions, forums, and breakout
sessions will reveal how scientific vision, design concepts, and building
operations plans are shaping decisions on budgets, performance metrics,
flexibility features, space utilization, and multi-discipline building
solutions. Cutting-edge technology designed for vivariums, biocontainment,
specialized embedded spaces, and sustainable ("green") design will be
discussed as well.
