Planar

Beaverton, OR

“Main Street” Production
This Planar project won an AIA/DJC Award for Excellence. The 45,000 SF building included a new clean-room and office for a high-technology production facility. The design incorporated equipment placement, production support offices, lunchroom, shower facilities, locker rooms, and restrooms. The concept based on the “Main Street” model, featured a linear production flow and a parallel flow for office support activities. A windowed air plenum wall separates the two areas.

High-Tech Cleanrooms
Shur Associates built two high-tech clean-rooms, a Class 100 and a Class 100,000. The U-shaped design of the larger Class 100 clean-room minimized initial cost, operating cost, and square footage, and made it easy to add or eliminate equipment.
