This project included capacity upgrades to an existing operating semiconductor manufacturing facility. Basebuild work for the Fab 8.1 Scenario 19 ramp included upgrades to an existing PCW system, acid waste treatment systems, process mechanical (vacuum, chilled water, acid, exhaust, etc.), power capacity upgrades, clean room build outs, clean room lab build outs, and bulk gas systems. Virtual design and construction was leveraged to ensure the project was conflict free and achieved substantial off-site fabrication. This allowed for upgrades to the active advanced manufacturing facility to be predictable and in sync with end user operations.
Predictability was enhanced through use of Lean practices which allowed seamless communication between all parties with respect to scheduling activities and created a heightened focus on safety resulting in no interruptions to production. This allowed for upgrades to the active advanced manufacturing facility to be predictable and in sync with end user operations.
Due to early involvement in planning processes, we were able to deliver pricing the was 17% less than the estimated last price paid by this customer using a traditional design-bid-build delivery model.
