VBFA engineers and all stakeholders collaborated throughout the design process to ensure important regulations and practices would continue in this high-volume manufacturing plant throughout the project. The warehouse / storage area included production rooms, gowning, air lock vestibules, restrooms, locker rooms, breakroom, and multiple offices and meeting spaces. The build-out areas were in the existing warehouse building. The mechanical system was designed to provide and maintain space conditions of 70 deg F and 50% RH within the production bays. A dust collection system was provided via a combined exterior system that serves the all-new spaces.
