National Institute of Standards and Technologies National Nanotechnology Initiative Naval Research Laboratory HDR Architecture, Inc. Colin Gordon and Associates
Organized in part under the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), the purpose of the Buildings for Advanced Technology (BAT) Workshops is to bring clarity to issues pertaining to the design and construction of facilities that support advanced technologies such as nanoscale research, high-accuracy metrology, semiconductor fabrication, and biotechnology.

The first two workshops, held in 2003 and 2004, focused on the technical considerations of these facilities, with a strong emphasis on designing to control the environment by minimizing the influence of external and internal disturbances. The third workshop held in 2006 focused on lessons learned and results achieved in these advanced technical facilities.
 
Upcoming Workshops
Information on the upcoming BAT IV and the mini-BAT III will be posted shortly.

Past Workshops
 
Now that a first wave of technical facilities has been designed and many have been constructed, this third BAT workshop focused on results achieved and the lessons learned. The BAT III workshop was organized in part by the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative and Purdue University with invited speakers from a prestigious list of national laboratories and higher education institutions.

The overall theme was that of a report card from the perspectives of a client, owner, user, or facilities manager with regard to achieving the needs of these technically demanding facilities.

Organized in part under the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), the purpose of the workshop elucidated issues related to designing and constructing facilities that support advanced technologies such as nanoscale research, high-accuracy metrology, semiconductor fabrication, and biotechnology. The workshop focused on technical factors to consider in the design and construction of advanced technology facilities demanding minimal influence from external and internal disturbances.

Attended by more than 125 scientists, architects, engineers, technologists and builders from around the world, the workshop focused on issues related to the design and construction of facilities that support advanced technologies. Click here for more information
