Project Summary

The CESTM Facility serves the nanoelectronic technology community as a state-of-the-art research and development facility, a business development and incubation center for emerging companies, and as the home of the newly-created University of Albany School of Nanosciences and Materials. Welliver managed the construction of three phases of the Nanotech pilot program, which was part of New York State's commitment to increasing STEM jobs and development. These projects required a high level of planning, construction phasing and schedule management. The on-site project team chosen for the job delivered all three projects successfully, maintaining schedule, budget and getting the tenants into the building on time. Vibration management was of utmost concern as was the safety to the surrounding community where the Center was being built.

 

Phase 1

The first phase of the project included an addition to the existing building, as well as a 35,000 square-foot Class 100 cleanroom within the R&D facility. Workforce training cleanroom labs, auditorium and conference rooms were also incorporated to create this world-class facility. The building includes a 300mm Pilot Manufacturing Facility, a 120,000 square-foot business incubator, two three-levl rotundas connected by an elevated pedestrian walkway to serve as a welcoming point for visitors and employees. An air amangement system that utilizes fan filter units were installed, which allows for flexibility in the tenants' cleanroom spaces.

 

Phase 2

The CESTM II Faclity serves the nanoelectronic technology community as a state-of-the-art R&D facility, a business development and incubation center for emerging companies, and as the home of the newly-created School of Nanosciences and Materials. The project included an addition to the existing building, as well as a 35,000 square-foot Class 100 cleanroom within the R&D facility. Workforce training cleanroom labs, an elevated pedestrian bridge, auditorium and conference room were also incorporated to create this world-class facility.
