Applied Materials, Building 8 Assembly and Testing Facility

Sunnyvale, CA

Complete renovation of an existing 60,000 SF building to provide a 30,000 SF Class 10,000 clean room for assembly and testing of wafer fabrication tools and 30,000 SF of support office and shipping/receiving space.  The HVAC system included two 200 ton air cooled chillers, fourteen air handlers, variable speed pumping and DDC controls.  Process systems included two 140 ton air cooled chillers, two 60 HP air compressors, etch gas supply and distribution for nitrogen, oxygen, argon and C2F6 gases.

Applied Materials, Building 29 Applied Global University

Sunnyvale, CA

Complete renovation of an existing two story 100,000 SF building to provide a first class technical training facility for world wide customers.  The facility will accommodate 1,000 trainees with 40 classrooms and 14,000 SF of laboratory space outfitted with 18 bays for tools and their peripheral equipment for hands-on training.  The facility provides 22,000 SF for the administrative staff and training program personnel.

The HVAC system consists of 8 air handlers supplying primary air to VAV terminals with hot water reheat coils.  Three 200 ton air cooled chillers and one 75 BHP hot water boiler supply cooling and heating to the spaces.

The process systems includes a 75 HP air compressor and CDA system, argon dewars, and helium gas distribution systems.  The process cooling water system includes a 375 ton closed fluid cooler with 50% back-up capacity by means of a chilled water heat exchanger arrangement.

A new DDC control system insures the highest level of occupant comfort and energy conservation.  Local and remote monitoring and control point resetting of space temperature, primary air temperature and the hydronics temperatures has been incorporated.
