Solar Fab Build Out
Location: San Jose, CA
Type of Contract: Design-Build
Detailed Project Scope
Advance Design Consultants, Inc. provide full design services to support SVTC Technologies with the design, programming and process flow of a new Solar Manufacturing facility. The Solar Manufacturing facility consist of 13,000 square feet of Class M-5 Cleanroom to be built within the 61,000 square foot building which currently supports another 27,000 square feet of Cleanroom for CMOS and MEMS fabrication equipment. The new lab was supported by 12,000 CFM of Acid Exhaust, 12,000 CFM of General Exhaust, 160 Ton Air Handler, Acid Waste Trench with Sump, additional House Process Water/Gases and Electrical Upgrades. The project required upgrades of an additional 6,000 square feet to the existing service utility yard as well. Improvements to the yard include the design of a new emergency generator, a new 120 ton process cooling water chiller, a new 400 ton water cooled chiller, chemical storage expansion with chemical dispensing and ancillary equipment. Finally the project includes the remodel and relocation of 18,000 square feet of office space to an adjacent building supporting the existing and new cleanrooms. The project was on a fast-track schedule to complete the New Solar facility
ADC provided design and construction support for the Solar Development Lab consisting of 13,000 square feet of Class M-5 Cleanroom.
This project required a fast-track delivery schedule and a strict budget due to government restrictions and funding along with coordination and distribution of highly hazardous materials.
Seperating the project into five phases, ADC’s team was able to begin construction while design was being finalized, implementing value engineering during every quality control session.
On time, on budget, value engineering
