Micron Tenant Improvement And Process Piping

The Micron (formerly Numonyx) tenant improvement project was broken up into two phases in order to keep the projects on a fast track schedule.

Phase 1 encompassed the 56,000 SF, 2-story office space, primarily served by a dual duct VAV system with a single cooling unit and a single heating unit on the roof. Phase 2 entailed a 40,000 SF research and development, test and manufacturing facility adjacent to Phase 1 and the 1,200 SF rack data center served by traditional chilled water CRAC units and backed up by high density refrigerant cooling systems for complete redundancy. The mechanical system is comprised of a cooling only, chilled water VAV system with three large air handlers on the roof. Mechanical design provided during Phase 2 includes deionized water, oil-free compressed air, chilled water, vacuum, and gaseous nitrogen. The piping system serving the testing & manufacturing operations are routed in a loop above the lab floor serving a variety of floor mounted equipment.

Capital was responsible for the design of all service piping and all related equipment selections with the exception of the deionized water source. The owner independently purchased the deionized water, compressed air and vacuum equipment. Capital worked closely with the owner to layout the mechanical yard and with the contractor to coordinate the connection points for the piping. Although it was a fast track project, the owner, contractors and engineers took the time to create a 3D model prior to any construction which proved very beneficial in meeting the tight deadlines.
