About This Project

DPS have been engaged to carry out the Basis of Design, the detailed MEP design scope and federated model management with our client. The retrofit is an operational facility with multiple tenants requiring detailed shutdown scope, scheduling, planning and execution through collaboration with contractors. The team intends to ramp with the existing tool set between 6 months to 1 year, to a 5,000 wafer out/per annum capacity.

Limited as-built information required systems to be field verified in order to produce a quality, accurate design. Laser scan data was used extensively within the design model to ensure accurate detailing and co-ordination with all trades. A comprehensive analysis of the project utility requirements against the existing facility data was used to determine the utility scope required, with minimal impact to the existing operational facility. Extensive planning was performed in close cooperation with the client to ensure zero unplanned downtime due to utility interruptions.
