How Builders Can Leverage Technology to Develop Smart Labs

Smart labs can improve research-based outcomes and building performance

The utilization of technology in laboratories and life science facilities has increased its prevalence and impact over the past decade. Lab automation, for example, is expected to represent an $8.4 billion market by 2026, up from $4.8 billion in 2018. This rise in lab automation is driven by the need to remove the fragmented and manual configuration of historical lab environments, enabling more efficient management of experiments, tighter quality control, and a more comprehensive collection of analysis and data. 

Technology-rich laboratory environments are improving to meet the challenge of historically fragmented and manual configurations and processes; however, the building technologies supporting these mission-critical experiments are behind in design, integration, and connectivity.
