   ● construction process design requirements - mainly contains biology laboratory building design, interior decoration materials requirements.
Basic laboratory work of the regional scale (ELM) is to ensure the safety of biomedical research to run to set a regional scale. Laboratory ELM generally include console, laboratory equipment (including storage cabinets), table, chemical exhaust cover and the length requirement of biology safety cabinets.
The current trend in laboratory design planning has already begun moving in the direction of Planning regional spatial scale, but not limited to the length of the regional scale. This trend is originated in the form of modular laboratory use.
As the construction area  including circulation areas, building core area, wall area and public area, certainly in the whole it is greater than the use of specific functional area. Reference the AIA ,using the conversion method between the area and construction area, The basic conversion factor of laboratory (including the internal circulation and function of distribution area) area is from 1.7 to 2.2. The total area conversion out will also be required to adjust in actual planning.
Laboratory Construction materials should select the type of durable and easy to clean and they can help to create a comfortable and safe working environment. The key factor for the material is easily to clean, easily to maintain, easily to storage and to minimize the virus spreading. Selected material for the wall and the floor must also be taken into account to ensure the safety of laboratory personnel.
● structural design process requirements - including biology laboratories structural design, structural load requirements. As the vibration would interfere with the sensitivity of laboratory instruments, designers must consider to control the proper vibration and the vibration source should be placed away from the sensitive equipment, and must do careful analysis for vibration response of the building structure, in order to control the spreading of vibration in the laboratory area, engineers need to consider earlier structural design factors.
When set the size of Laboratory rooms(high, wide) ,the laboratory module, function allocation, Vibration Standard and late development etc should be considered, the width should be correspondingly changed in size based on laboratory modules, so not only ensure to design flexibility ,but also meet the conventional doors and windows design and laboratory support connection is formed a unified whole. Not allow to set the column in laboratory module to avoid prejudicing to the laboratory's internal circulation and space use, structural system and air conditioning system should be closely coordinated to prevent interference.
● HVAC design process requirements - including biology laboratory space HVAC system design, air filtration, exhaust systems, biology safety cabinet exhaust system requirements.
HVAC systems must meet laboratory requirements. Not only to strictly control temperature and humidity, but also to need adequate ventilation to handle the dust, odor, air contaminants, ventilation hoods and lab, so as to meet the requirements for heat. And we must take full account of system reliability and as well as the well-off amount. Different nature of the region need to ensure that different relative pressure, and according to relevant standards to consider long-term saving energy. NC of Cover mouth among laboratory operation should not exceed the maximum 50dB, unless the device itself allows, NC generally should not exceed 60 dB.
