Run Your Retrofit Projects Smoothly With
I2SL's New Best Practices Guide

I2SL understands how lab facilities must balance infrastructure needs and the needs of researchers, as well as how retrofit projects challenge that balance. To help you expertly tackle this issue, Alison Farmer, Ph.D., kW Engineering; Matt Gudorf, University of California, Irvine; and I2SL collaborated to produce a new Best Practices Guide: Energy Efficiency Projects and Principal Investigators.

Energy Efficiency Projects and Principal Investigators offers expert advice for making retrofit projects run as smoothly as possible. Within the guide, you can find best practices for cultivating cooperation and communication with key lab personnel throughout the retrofit process so that lab construction doesn’t have to be a major disruption.

If you’re already an I2SL Member, the guide is yours for free! To download, log into the Member Portal, navigate to I2SL Tools, and select Best Practices Guide: Energy Efficiency Projects and Principal Investigators.
