Four papers are presented detailing factors and/or case studies on high technology facilities. The authors represent different points of view.

A structural engineering consultant presents case studies on new construction and renovation of an existing building for high technology. A vibration consultant addresses vibration sources, vibration reduction, and selection of appropriate vibration design criteria.
