What Cleanroom Build Method Is Best For You?

Your future cleanroom is a critical asset, it is not just another construction project. The cleanroom surrounds critical manufacturing processes, the place where your company makes its life-changing products. The investment you make in the cleanroom facility is significant and it should perform for years to come.

There are many ways to build the cleanroom core of a facility, each with its own unique set of advantages and disadvantages. AES has focused exclusively on cleanroom design and construction for over 35 years. We have seen the rise and fall of many cleanroom implementation strategies, each with its own set of advantages and limitations.

AES has evolved its business by leveraging successful strategies over those 35 years and learning lessons along the way. It is by choice and with intention that we design, manufacture, and build cleanroom facilities utilizing our prefabricated, flat packed, site installed method.

Below is a guide to show the relative strengths and weaknesses of various cleanroom construction methodologies that are being implemented within the marketplace.  The AES solution represents a middle ground within a spectrum of project methodologies.  We believe, and our clients can testify, that this solution captures the benefits of both ends of the spectrum while avoiding the associated risks with the extremes.  That is why we deliberately chose pre-engineered modular construction as our tool for project execution.
