course is intended for those building owners, superintendents,
scientists, engineers, architects, and project managers who
are in a position to comment on laboratory designs and renovations
but who have relatively little experience in such designs.
This class will also benefit experienced laboratory designers
who wish to learn about new concepts such as: Variable Face
Velocity Control (VFV), high performance Bi-Stable Vortex
constant volume fume hoods, which increases user safety with
energy savings and lower construction first costs. Another
new concept to be discussed is selecting fume hoods based
on improved flow coefficient designs. A high performance hood
is a cornerstone in U.S. Green Buildings Council's LEEDTM
rating system. Class participation will be encouraged so that
all specific questions may be addressed by both the faculty
and the participants.
Upon completion of this course, participants will gain an
understanding of the overall process of developing a "state-of-the-art"
"green" laboratory, the current regulations and
adherence guidelines, and the issues related to engineering,
architects, mechanical systems, and equipment project planning.
This course is intended to provide participants with a broad
and practical introduction to good design parameters for laboratories.
These parameters will reflect the state-of-the-art for contemporary
emphasis will be placed on laboratory safety, fume hood applications,
and HVAC including its associated energy conservation.
on the interest of the participant, the subject matter can
address support areas such as animal rooms, clean rooms, isolation
rooms, and others.

Life After The Contractors
Morris is a partner of the office of Henry Klumb Configuration
Management Consultants (OHK/CMC) who supplies both laboratory
planning nationally and internationally for chemical and biological
research facilities and pharmaceutical facilities. Prior to
joining OHK/CMC, he was president of RH Morris & Associates,
a provider of product design consultations for major laboratory
control manufacturers. Prior to this, he was manager of System
Applications Engineering for Air Monitor Corporation. Earlier
in his career, he worked for Union Carbide as a Senior Process
Control Engineer and Machine Control Engineer for Hughes Industries.
Morris was the inventor of closed loop VAV fume hood control
and his patents formed the basis of this industry. Now, after
years of study, his latest improvement to his earlier work,
the high performance Bi-stable vortex fume hood with Variable
Face Velocity Control (VFV), provides the ultimate in fume
hood safety and energy conservation. The Bi-stable vortex
fume hood is references in "Natural Capitalism"
as one of the technologies creating the next industrial revolution.
In addition, he has written numerous articles concerning laboratory
design and fume hood systems. He is considered one of the
pioneers on Indoor Air Quality issues He has lectured for
numerous professional and commercial organizations around
the world. Mr. Morris is considered an expert on airflow and
containment control issues by the Federal Court, and has received
patents on applications for airflow measurement instruments,
fume hood controls, linear control valves, linear mechanical
actuators, and ultra low pressure transducers.
Morris is a member of the National Society for Professional
Engineers, the Instrument Society of America, and the American
Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning.
