Semiconductor & Microchip Research & Manufacturing
The recent focus and enthusiasm for American-led semiconductor, microchip (and other supporting sub-industries) have led to advancements in research and manufacturing facilities. Moreover, post-pandemic related supply chain issues have exacerbated the need for more companies and institutes in the US to help lead the way. Between venture capital and federal funding (CHIPS Act, National Science Foundation, etc.) there is an enormous amount of capital flooding the market for advancements in research, production, and other supporting markets. To support these advancements, facilities industry professionals need to be ready to design these spaces appropriately. Whether it be a private company or a public university, there will continue to be immense pressure to have facilities that are able to support these exciting advancements.
This guide will review challenges and roadblocks; while also providing insights and strategies on how to best plan, design and build these facilities.
