Corning Incorporated Dimensional Stability Laboratory
Pathfinder provided award-winning, full-service design of Corning’s Dimensional Stability Laboratory, including new cleanrooms, AHU mezzanine, service room and associated spaces. The Lab includes 7,100-sq. ft. of clean space consisting of class 1000 and class 10,000. It features 15 ft. ceilings and doors large enough to accommodate the installation of equipment.
The design utilizes both bay and chase and ballroom configuration for air flow design. Four central HVAC systems serve these areas. Pathfinder engineered process equipment fit-up and for central house systems.
Energy conservation measures included: VFDs on all AHU fan motors; T-5 lighting with electronic ballasts in the cleanroom, T-8 lighting in non-cleanroom areas, and compact fluorescent lighting in chases; and full DDC control.
