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.
