Construction and Installation For Cleanrooms

Total Clean Air is a leader in the design, construction and installation of cleanrooms, high containment laboratories and controlled environments. We design and build high quality cleanrooms in the UK and other parts of the world. With over a decade of experience in cleanroom design and construction, we have a comprehensive knowledge of all industry standards including ACDP, ISO 14644 and CL3 & 4.

Cleanroom Construction Process

The cleanroom construction includes the management, delivery, installation and implementation of the project. Your cleanroom project is overseen by a senior project manager who ensures the safe and efficient installation to HS and CDM regulations.

There are some projects you can DIY but a cleanroom construction and installation is not one of them. It is an engineering field that requires the expertise of a qualified cleanroom construction manager and designer, such as the skilled employees from Total Clean Air.

Cleanrooms are a vital part of semiconductor manufacturing, microelectronics and laboratories industry. To assure and maintain quality, there are standards that guide the construction process.

The International Standards Organisation devised ISO 144641 to specify the classification of air cleanliness in terms of concentration of airborne particles in cleanrooms. It also states that the space for cleanrooms must be constructed to control humidity, temperature and pressure. Construction must be done in a way that minimises the risk of particles entering the cleanroom space. As a qualified and fully integrated cleanroom construction and installation company, we will handle your project from start to finish to ensure success.

At Total Clean Air, we have a full understanding of ventilation, heating and air conditioning design process. We are also familiar with special HVAC equipment for maintaining space conditions of humidity, pressure and temperature within the cleanroom.

The Total Clean Air Cleanroom Construction Team

The cleanroom designer

The cleanroom designer designs and constructs a cleanroom without exceeding the budget for the cleanroom project. Before construction, our cleanroom designer will consider the following

  • The locations where cleanliness levels will be required and at what level.
  • The best floor plan for the cleanroom construction. Will it require multiple rooms? What level of cleanliness will be required in the gowning or anteroom?
  • The location of critical work areas. Will the location of airflow pattern, ULPA or HEPA filters in the room have an effect on critical work areas?
  • Environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature in the clean space. Will the requirement change in the future?
  • Heat loads based on the equipment load and number of people in the space.
  • Materials to be used in constructing walls, floor and ceiling. Are they compatible with the process requirement?
  • Availability of space above the ceiling for HEPA or ULPA filter units, light troffers and the required mechanical distribution system.
  • The size and location of the air supply, filters and air return for a proper distribution of clean air in the space.

Senior Project Manager

The senior project manager handles all aspects of the project including budget, planning, timing, quality and performance. He will send you a weekly report that details the progress the company is making regarding the project.

Engineering manager

Total Clean Air Engineering managers ensure your cleanroom meets all design criteria.

Superintendent

Our site superintendent conducts weekly safety meetings to ensure skilled workers comply with the PE safety policy. They also ensure schedule, quality control and on-site construction activities.

Skilled tradesmen

These are union and non-union workers who carry out the construction of your cleanroom.

The Cleanroom Construction Process

Stage 0 – Regular construction

This is the stage most contractors know. Total Clean Air pays extra attention to housekeeping to ensure complete cleanliness. There are no material restrictions at this stage but the standard personal protective equipment should be used. They include vests, hard hats and safety glasses.

Stage 1 – Clean Construction

Cleanliness is more important at this stage. We conduct hourly and daily cleanups with vacuums. There is no debris or trash in the cleanroom environment. We use sticky mats and multiple rugs to keep dirt outside.

Stage 2 – Pre-cleanroom Construction

Limit and control access to the cleanroom and setup a smock room for entry/exit with an air cleaner. All workers entering the cleanroom space must wear booties and use the sticky mats on the floor. We install a HEPA vacuum for drilling/cutting in the cleanroom. We turn on the air systems only (not the filter fan units).

Stage 3 – Active Cleanroom Construction

This is the most restrictive stage. It includes stage two precautions and some additional steps. Workers entering the cleanroom must wear coveralls or lab coats, booties, hear nets and gloves. We employ the circulation air system to clean the air continuously.
