  • This course will focus on the benefits of multi-user, in-lab local vacuum networks for supply of laboratory vacuum in science buildings. The course will review common approaches to laboratory vacuum and consider the relative strengths and weaknesses of each approach. Emphasis will be placed on considerations related to the specification, design, and installation of a “local vacuum network.” Case studies will demonstrate the applicability of local vacuum networks for new and renovated lab space in a wide range of facilities and scientific disciplines.

  • According to building professionals, the solution to achieving an energy efficient building envelope is to focus more on the roof. Protected membrane roof (PMR) assemblies deliver thermal efficiency and can play a valuable role in a sustainable design strategy. Presented in this course is a review of the components, advantages, ballast options, and design and installation considerations of PMR assemblies.


  • Provides an overview of the benefits of multi-user, in-lab local vacuum networks for supply of lab vacuum in science buildings. It discusses the specification, design, and installation of local vacuum networks and uses in-depth case studies to illustrate design considerations in specifying local vacuum networks, and the benefits of this approach.
