INFICON Cleanroom and Warehouse
INFICON, Inc., is an international manufacturer of highly specialized gas instrumentation devices. C&S designed and built an 18,500-square-foot ISO 7, Class 10,000 cleanroom and provided MEP design for a 40,000-square-foot product warehouse, most of which is an ISO 8, Class 100,000 cleanroom. The cleanrooms have strict temperature and humidity requirements requiring a specialized HVAC systems. Interior space was not available for the air handling equipment, so rooftop equipment was used. The cleanrooms are three distinct spaces, so each space has its own individual rooftop unit that provides the necessary temperature, humidity, and pressure. Filtration and room air velocity is maintained through ceiling-mounted fan filter units that also provide HEPA filtration (99.99% efficient). The plenum space above the cleanroom is used as the return air path, as well as the point where conditioned air is delivered. The project was designed using BIM and the model was delivered to the owner for their use and consideration at the completion of the design phase. BIM coordination was checked continuously throughout the design to minimize space conflicts and for space visualization.
