FormFactor Wafer Probe Card Manufacturing Facility

FormFactor Wafer Probe Card Manufacturing Facility | Livermore, California

DPR successfully transformed a cold shell warehouse into a one-of-a-kind wafer probe-card-manufacturing facility in 10 short months for FormFactor, Inc. As a leader in the design, development, manufacture, sale and support of high-performance advanced semiconductor wafer probe cards, FormFactor looked to DPR to handle the first renovation on the company's new Livermore, California, campus. The project featured 24,000-sq.-ft. of manufacturing space, including Class 100 and Class 1,000 production suites, as well as 14,000-sq.-ft. of tenant improvements.

Project Scope

As part of the renovation, the team performed structural upgrades to the building's roof to support six new make-up air units. They removed half of the building's slab and depressed it two feet to accommodate the cleanroom access flooring. The team also installed 112 High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) plenums and 60 recirculation units. Alongside the building, DPR built a back service pad for the central utility plan, which includes chilled water, condenser water, a boiler and an emergency generator.

Despite the highly complex nature of the project, DPR delivered Phase 1 a day ahead of schedule with zero defects, and the project was turned over to the owner with no outstanding change orders.
