Reviews

'This is a very readable textbook, on a subject which rarely receives the attention in technical literature which it deserves. Modern laboratories cannot be designed successfully by non-specialist architectural/engineering teams. Even those with experience require guidelines as well as reference to facilities which have proved their worth through successful operation. The guide is particularly rich in demonstrative examples not only of completed projects involving the Author and other architects, but also of some under construction or at the design stage. The 43 case studies represent a good spread of laboratory design principles and practices. This section, and the associated collection of schematics, details and photographs forms perhaps the most informative part of the book, with equal relevance to general architectural practice and the specialist.' Extracted from a review by Tomi Komoly Komoly Associates International Laboratory Design Consultants Review of the 2nd edition: 'This is a vital book for all those responsible for the design of laboratory buildings: the client; architect; engineer; building project manager and scientist.' Building Engineer Reviews of the 1st edition: 'Having moved in to a new laboratory for teaching and research 12 months ago, I wish that our faculty had had this book available to us 4 years ago while we were in the planning stage of the building.' Chemistry in Australia 'Many common problems in laboratories could be avoided if this guide was compulsory reading for laboratory managers, architects and designers.'
