This 5,000 SF state-of-the-art class 1 cleanroom, requiring 100% filtering utilizing HEPA units in the ceiling and a perforated flooring system for laminar flow ventilation throughout, represents the most stringent regulations and demanding working conditions in construction today. This project involved coordination of all utility and data infrastructure work including process piping and specialty gases. A class 1 cleanroom is defined by particulate counts less than 3,000 particles / m3 of a size of 0.5 micron.
