Siemens offers design guide for building energy-efficient labs
22 April 2009
Siemens Building Technologies, Inc. is offering a new Life Science
Solutions Design Guide written expressly for consulting engineers and
other professionals who are looking to design and specify effective and
more energy-efficient laboratory facilities.
With a focus on building automation solutions, this comprehensive,
stand-alone laboratory control specification resource is written and
organized to help engineers properly configure laboratory ventilation
and control systems.
It provides an overview of Siemens environmental control offerings,
technology reports and application guides for laboratories, animal
research facilities, FDA-regulated facilities, bio-containment and
critical storage applications.
"This Life Sciences Solutions Guide is the first of its kind offered
in this industry," said Diane Feliciano-Welpe, Director of Life Science
Solutions at Siemens Building Technologies. "It takes a component-based
approach to system design that allows lab engineering professionals to
quickly scope and execute these projects while adding incremental value
along the way."
Siemens' easy-to-use design guide is divided into sections based on
the type of deliverable and provides users with several tools to help
optimize laboratory building automation solution development. It
provides technical product specifications for a wide variety of system
components including fume hood controls, air terminal technology,
alarming and notification, and data management. The guide also contains
Siemens Technology Reports on energy savings and sustainability,
laboratory ventilation, overall lab design and more.
"Lab system designers are faced with a number of challenges. Whether
it's meeting the demands of changing regulations, improving energy
efficiency or reducing risks to personnel, organizations need to closely
examine their building systems and integrate solutions that will help
them in these areas," said Feliciano-Welpe. "Our new design guide acts
as a catalyst for the success of these efforts and will assist them in
