This project consisted of a tenant finish for an existing single-floor, slab-on-grade industrial building, divided into two phases. This project was divided into two phases, with the first phase being occupied during construction of the second phase. This required that all utility infrastructure was thoroughly planned and designed well in advance so as not to disrupt the tenants. This project had a very short schedule; the initial phase of 28,000 sq. ft. tenant finish construction required only 4 months to complete. To complete this project within this time frame required very close contact with the owners and design team with a focused effort to resolve issues in the field quickly.
Phase I included the design of 28,000 sq. ft. of office space, shipping/receiving area, small laboratory, chemical dispensing room, SCIF conference room and a 900 sq. ft. data center with raised floor.
Phase II consisted of the process-oriented section of the facility which contains two 1,500 sq. ft. Class 10,000 (ISO 7) clean rooms, one Class 100,000 (ISO 8) gowning room, research and development room and the housing of all mechanical equipment.
Heating and cooling of the general office areas are provided by variable air volume, packaged rooftop units with gas-fired heating. The clean rooms were designed with dedicated custom air handling units, de-ionized water humidification system, HEPA filter supply air and a clipped and gasketed ceiling system.
This facility produces flight hardware. The main function of the building stems from the production clean rooms.
Key features of the project include:
- Four (4) SCIF separations
- Data Center
- Clean Rooms / Laboratories
- Commercial Office Building Tenant Finish
- Multiple large teleconference centers
