Modular Cleanrooms, Designed for Compliance
Our in-house cleanroom design team includes architectural, mechanical, and electrical disciplines. AES designs cleanrooms for superior performance, cleanliness, and compliance. Highly motivated and results-oriented, the AES Design Team cooperatively works within your project execution strategy to deliver a high-quality facility focused on performance.
AES designers work as a team with our cleanroom construction personnel to deliver a cost-effective project, while maximizing performance, value and constructability. The greatest client value is delivered when AES is brought onto the team at the inception of the project. This allows the AES professionals the key factors that impact the infrastructure design of the host building surrounding the clean space. This early design integration ultimately saves design “soft costs,” expedites schedule, and eliminates a duplication of services.
AES Utilizes Good Engineering Practices (GEP)
GEPs are a combination of standards, specifications, codes, and regulatory and industrial guidelines. GEPs are also accepted engineering and design methods intended to design, construct, operate and maintain pharmaceutical, biotechnology or other high-tech cleanroom facilities. AES not only takes regulatory compliance into account but also safety, economics, environmental protection, and operability for specific cleanroom classes. Standards and specifications are provided by recognized sources; established engineering and architectural professional organizations. Codes are provided by local, state, or federal jurisdictions and/or insurance companies (i.e. FM Global). Guidelines are issued by professional societies, industrial organizations, or regulatory agencies.
Design-Build Approach to Project Execution
AESiST: – Engineering / Pre-Construction Phase:
- AES becomes an extension of the client’s team, serving to integrate the cleanroom facility into the host building context.
- The goal of this phase is to integrate the AES cleanroom solutions – engineering, construction, and commissioning of the critical cleanroom facility – without duplicating efforts among members of the project team.
- Potential gaps or overlaps in responsibility are addressed early in the pre-construction phase to eliminate the risk that can develop during construction.
- AES helps the project team to maximize the aseptic details of modular cleanroom construction.
- AES focuses the team on the integration between the cleanroom facility and the host building infrastructure. 3-D modeling is utilized for coordination of all disciplines including structural tie-in details, HVAC systems, electrical services, process equipment interfaces, and process utility distribution within the cleanroom facility. These 3-D design tools then transition to the construction phase through BIM coordination with all of the trades that will bring the facility to life.
- AES’ focus during the engineering phase is ultimately on the construction strategy so that we can ensure that the facility will be built in a cost-effective, high quality, rapid, and safe manner.
- The AES Construction Quality Plan (CQP) is then used to commission the cleanroom facility to ensure that it meets all of the performance objectives that are required for compliance. This CQP becomes the tool for transitioning the facility into validation and ultimately toward launch of our clients’ products to the marketplace.
