Industrial Building Construction for Global Foundries

Brandt Industrial has long been a leader in industrial building construction, largely because of its solid reputation for innovation and collaboration at every level of a project. Clients can rely on Brandt to deliver turnkey projects on time and to specifications. Such was the case in Brandt Industrial’s most recent collaboration with semiconductor giant Global Foundries.

About Global Foundries

Global Foundries is a full-service semiconductor foundry based out of Silicon Valley, with manufacturing facilities located in Malta, N.Y.; Dresden, Germany; and Singapore. They supply custom microprocessors and integrated circuits to the electronics industry. Formed in 2009 after purchasing manufacturing rights from AMD and Chartered Semiconductor, Global Foundries focuses on innovative collaborations with partners and customers to ensure the highest quality products in the semiconductor industry.

Brandt’s Scope of Work

Brandt Industrial’s reputation for industrial building construction excellence led to its involvement in the latest turnkey project at Global Foundries in their New York manufacturing facility. The project consisted of building out  90,000 square feet of fab space at the end of building 8.1. The end goal of the building construction was to have  300,000 square feet of cleanroom manufacturing space. With Global Foundries at the top of the semiconductor manufacturing industry and second only to TSMC, a manufacturing company in Taiwan, it was vital for them to collaborate with the right industrial building company to meet those goals.

Brandt Industrial was the prime contractor for this project, supplying process lateral system modules for all process utilities. This included the process exhaust duct, as well as transitional main lines and interconnecting piping between modules. Brandt fabricated approximately 273 modules for this project, shipping them to the facility for installation. Once shipped, Brandt monitored modular installation as well as the transition piping for connections and final assembly.

Started in late 2013 with a completion date of April meant a quick turnaround time and tight deadlines for this important project. Brandt’s modular approach to construction was absolutely essential, as it efficiently streamlined the process of construction and made for more efficient completion. Brandt Industrial, with its solid reputation for comprehensive and detailed industrial building construction—and, in particular, its extensive BIM capabilities in the technology and manufacturing industries—was the natural choice for such an intricate project.

Brandt Industrial: A Model in Modular Construction

Brandt Industrial, a leader in modular construction, surpasses the competition with its extensive and innovative usage of modular building design and construction as part of a greater model of sustainable and energy efficient building for the technology manufacturing industry.
