Often facing concerns related to budget and schedule, semiconductor projects can present great challenges. With facility design and manufacturing process development often happening simultaneously, semiconductor projects require an experienced partner that can adapt to constant change and select equally adaptable buildings systems.
Southland Engineering’s strong experience with lean design as well as the design-build delivery model provides you with the flexibility needed to keep up with changing requirements. We are adept at engineering spaces for tight cleanliness and environmental conditions, and have extensive knowledge of high purity chemical and gas delivery systems, as well as ultrapure water systems, chemical waste treatment, and the building codes associated with hazardous production areas.
Through target value design, we can help you overcome constant pressure to meet your budget and improve value for both you and your facility. Our ability to gain constructability input from installation professionals during the design process means faster response times, the ability to leverage modularization and pre-fabrication, as well as the ability to mitigate maintenance concerns. We know that many semiconductor facilities require optimization of space and utility routing, which is why our BIM models provide a high level of precision during design. Working within a single BIM model, our engineering, detailing, and pre-construction personnel work together to make changes early on, with less coordination impact and the possibility to accelerate schedule. As an Autodesk partner, Southland Engineering has used BIM 360 for coordinating a large project on the east coast, and even implemented 3D detailing for the prefabrication on a large semiconductor project overseas.
