BioFacilities Managers’ Association (BFA) 3rd Quarter Meeting: How to Move a Biotech Facility

How to Move a Biotech Facility

Sponsored by


“Move” doesn’t have to be a four-letter word – the task, can indeed be tamed! Join us for a lively discussion with four experienced industry professionals who will share their expertise and “lessons learned” in planning, executing and surviving a successful relocation. We’ll cover a number of topics – timelines, leveraging resources and tools, organizing people and FFE and partnering with HR/IT/EH&S.

Before the panel discussion begins, the BFA welcomes Mike Lappen, Economic Development Coordinator at City of South San Francisco to give a ten minute presentation on a funding program SSF is launching to local biotech for energy conservation projects.
