Markets & Applications

Nanotech & Semiconductor Cleanrooms

Technology is advancing at eye popping speeds – cloud computing, artificial intelligence, robotics, autonomous cars – all demanding smarter, faster, more efficient and more reliable devices. These technologies improve our lives, increase our productivity and allow our kids to dream bigger. AdvanceTEC designs and builds leading-edge cleanrooms that enable smarter, faster, and more energy efficient materials science. Our comprehensive, in house engineering, design and construction experts bring experience in cleanroom mechanical, cleanroom architectural and mission critical process utility systems to your project. The result is rapid, efficient and cost-effective execution of your next nanotechnology project or process tool install.


  • In house staff understands the various challenges from research & development facilities, to applications labs, to pilot lines, to volume production fabs
  • Design/build approach brings proven expertise to your project, deployed with the speed and precision that matches your scope, scale and budget
  • Flexible project scope and resource deployment, from turn-key design/build to plan/spec construction only scopes of work, to “design-assist” project deliveries
  • Knowledge to recommend the optimal approach, design and execution that aligns with your project objectives
  • Process tool fit-up and hook-up capabilities, including rigging/setting and installation of your most sophisticated process tools.

Whether you require a 1,000 square foot Class 100 cleanroom or a fully functional volume production fab, AdvanceTEC can address your critical requirements for contamination control, code compliance, and process tool fit-up & installation.

The AdvanceTEC Difference
• Focused, expert team that understands the importance of “built clean”
• 3D BIM technology library accelerates the time from concept to commissioning
• Designing from the inside out, starting with your process and tool list, and wrapping the facility around it
