MAXIM INTEGRATED CIRCUITS
San Jose, CA
Type: Manufacturing, Cleanroom Size: 20,000 SF
AlfaTech provided Engineering and Architectural services for the expansion and alteration of an existing X3 Fab to provide for approximately 20,000 SF of contiguous, additional cleanroom area to the existing Fab within the footprint of the existing building. The project scope included upgrades and expansion of interior support facilities and exterior site utility pads and infrastructure to support the proposed Fab expansion. The new cleanroom facility design was developed with approximately 9,000 SF finished clean manufacturing space. The balance of the cleanroom addition was developed as shell area for future expansion. The performance criteria for the design of the new cleanroom were to match the existing bay and chase design with Class 1 bays, Class 1000 service chases and subfab level, for wafer geometries of 0.6 micron or larger. The existing mixed-use occupancy structure required additional occupancy area and building area separations to accommodate the additional floor area additions in order to remain in conformance with applicable Fire and Building Code requirements. Additionally, we provided Construction Management support in terms of budget cost estimates and assisted them in the review of bids by General Contractors.
For more than ten years, Lockheed has chosen AlfaTech as the prime design and construction consultant to work on a multitude of high technology projects at their Sunnyvale campus. Most projects entailed the programming, planning design and construction management for clean room facilities existing on this nationally prominent Lockheed site. Numerous projects entailed the upgrading of existing clean space to higher cleanliness levels in support of this companies missile system production. Significant challenges were presented in these typically “high bay” buildings.
