Abstract
A major issue facing researchers today is the extremely fast rate of change in scientific instrumentation. Along with this, is the need to design research buildings that are flexible enough to support the changing needs of the science inside. The answer to this problem lies in the development of a proper design process. This paper will outline the major tenants of a successful design process and will then use The Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University as a working-example of a real-world solution to design challenges such as the creation of specialized spaces for nanotechnology and other highly sensitive technologies. Resolution of design requirements and the resulting EMI/RFI, Vibration and Noise levels of the Biodesign Institute will be presented.
