McCarthy in final phase of Hyundai`s MaxMedia project

San Francisco

The last major construction phase of Hyundai Electronics America`s wafer fab, hard drive manufacturing, and office facilities for its MaxMedia Division, located in San Jose, is underway. Begun in August, 1996, the project proceeded on a highly accelerated, ten-month schedule, which is being executed by McCarthy, the design/build firm on the project. The facility houses three buildings for manufacturing 3 1/2-inch computer disks. Building A is a 75,000-sq. ft. computer disk fabrication facility housing cleanrooms at Class 10,000, 1,000, 100 and 10. A 75,000-sq. ft. elevated fan deck supports the air-handling equipment. Building B, a 57,000-sq. ft. structure, houses a plating line, offices R&D laboratories and chemical storage space, while Building C provides 5,600-sq. ft. of office space. All three buildings were upgraded to meet current seismic codes. To ensure success in meeting the tight schedule and cleanroom certification standards, protocol classes were held for all personnel on the project, and cleanrooms were tested one grade cleaner than required, according to McCarthy Project Manager Jim Pruett. — SES
