Thorlabs | Multiple Cleanroom Projects
Project Location | Jessup, MD
Project Client | Thorlabs Quantum Electronics
Project Size | 16,000 SF
CFR is the MEP EOR and Prime Project Manager for the renovation and expansion of the Thorlabs facility, which will nearly double in size at completion. This includes MEP design for:
16,000 SF total fabrication + support area: 1,350 SF Class 100/ISO 5; 2,000 SF Class 1000/ISO 6; 4,500 SF Class 10,000/ISO 7 and; 1,200 SF Class 100,000 ISO/8. Resizing and redesign of the coater ballroom Air Handling Units from packages gas/electric to chilled water/steam reheat systems.
Fit out of the existing single story, high bay space with new offices, cleanrooms, storage and warehouse space to include space with hazard ratings. This project is ongoing as it is an extensive renovation involving not only MEP aspects but also Architectural, Civil and Structural Engineering, and Life Safety and Code Consulting over multiple phases of which CFR is managing.
nano tech lab client | Deep UV Photo Clean Room
Project Location | Linthicum Heights, MD
Project Client | Confidential Client
Project Size | 2,645 SF
CFR provided project management, MEP and structural engineering, and cleanroom construction consultant services for the renovation/expansion of 2,645 SF operating nano-fabrication Class 100/ISO 5 clean room. CFR performed HVAC upgrades to reduce the humidity in the room and to achieve a design set point of 70°F +/- 2°F and 40% +/- 2% relative humidity. CFR modified and designed new HVAC system(s), plumbing and electrical associated with the HVAC upgrades to support the current system(s) already in place.
GE Healthcare | Clean Room and Office Renovation
Project Location | Silver Spring, MD
Project Client | GE Healthcare
Project Size | 6,500 SF
The general scope of this project was the renovation of 6,500 SF of space at GE Healthcare. 1355 SF of this total was a mixture of ISO Class 7 and 8 Validated Cleanroom space. Work included modification of existing HVAC systems to properly serve the office spaces and providing necessary input utilities for the cleanroom HVAC systems. Plumbing included providing for necessary condensate drainage from the new air handling systems. Also included modification of existing wet sprinkler system to properly cover the area, as well as modification of existing lighting, power, and fire alarm systems to properly serve the space and provide necessary input utilities for the cleanroom electrical systems.
NIH | Building 10 - B1D501A Clean Room
Project Location | Bethesda, MD
Project Client | David C. Smith & Son Inc.
Project Size | 1,500 SF
The general scope of work was to provide a Class 100,000 clean room for the production of experimental catheters and other medical devices. The project included MEP engineering documents for the cleanroom, cleanroom support, and workshop spaces. Mechanical Engineering included a dedicated re-circulating air handler, HEPA Filtration, and pressurization controls. Piping engineering included a new dedicated oil less air compressor for the various projection tools used in the suite.
NIST | Bldg 221 - Clean Room & MBE Fit-Up
Project Location | Gaithersburg, MD
Project Client | National Institute of Standards & Technology
Project Size | 1,000 SF
The general scope of work was to provide MEP engineering services for a 1,000 SF Clean Room and MBE Fitup in Building 221. This included two (2) fume hoods, an exhaust liquid nitrogen phase separator, and HEPA pre filters installed in ductwork to the lab modules and makeup air to the cleanroom. Electrical work included power and UPS from the attic via 480 Bus Duct. Also included new electrical circuits to HEPA Fan equipment in the clean room, as well as a natural gas 125kW standby generator with automatic transfer and start controls in the attic to support the UPS and critical equipment.
