Lab and Life Science Conversions: Best Practices for Positive Impact

Friday, October 1, 2021 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (EDT)


The demand for lab space and life sciences space continues to outpace supply. Compressed timelines for occupancy are driving tenant decisions and office to lab conversions are on the rise. From design standards to community engagement, there's a right way to convert existing buildings into lab and life sciences space. Join NAIOP for this lunchtime webinar and learn from leading industry experts about best practices to ensure safe buildings, activate communities and support Massachusetts' thriving innovation economy.

Attendees will first hear from Massachusetts Life Sciences Center CEO Kenneth Turner, who will provide an overview of the life sciences ecosystem here in the Commonwealth. Following the keynote, panelists will focus on current and projected demand, provide examples of model conversions from around the country, and discuss what it means to successfully convert a building for lab and life sciences in the Greater Boston Market.
