Air Systems designed and implemented a building automation/controls system for a highly controlled production facility, while also delivering economical building control solutions for more typical office space that exists in the building. Our services were fast-tracked, and costs came in under budget. We also delivered redundant system design for zero-to-minimal fabrication down time due to unforeseen mechanical system failure.
FormFactor needed conditioning and control solutions for a 20,000-square-foot, Class 1,000 clean room, as well as their 5,000-square-foot office space. This buildout required the implementation of sophisticated mechanical and controls systems, so they turned to Air Systems to get the job done right.
We delivered the following:
- Installed 5,000 feet of conduit and 4,000 feet of fabricated piping
- Delivered six air-cooled chiller condensers, which included six multi-stack chillers with two chilled water pumps
- Installed eight rooftop units for clean room interstitial cooling, warehouse cooling, and office cooling
- Installed six split systems for indeterminate distribution frame room cooling
- Installed three boilers with pumps, two humidifiers, and two reverse osmosis systems
- Provided power for 1,000 fan-powered HEPA units in the clean and lighting controls
- Installed plumbing systems for one restroom core in the office space
- Installed one generator, two 800-cubic-feet/minute compressed dry air systems, one process vacuum system, and one house vacuum system
- Provided control solutions for multi-stack modular chillers, humidity-controlled make-up air units, recirculating air handlers, rooftop AC units, high-pressure process exhaust fans, metering electrical switch gear, and process gasses through the installation of nine battery management system control panels
- Integrated the new building into FormFactor’s existing infrastructure, enabling the campus to be managed through one convenient user interface
