Assembly Magazine Article: “Computational Fluid Dynamics Software Saves Time, Cuts Costs”

Dewayne Galyon, Basebuild Technical Specialist at SSOE, spotlights the value that computational fluid dynamics (CFD), a simulation software that models airflow, offers when designing a cleanroom environment in this Assembly Magazine article. Dewayne urges readers to avoid trial and error methods to keep characteristically high construction costs at bay, while starting the project off right with clean, complete data within the model. He drives his points home with project examples throughout the article, including an overview of a fast-track multi-basebuild, ISO 4 cleanroom installation project that helped SSOE solidify our ongoing relationship with Micron Technology.

Area Development Magazine Article: “Scheduling, Planning, and Front-End Loading (FEL) Can Keep Projects Open During Construction”

Gavin Kaleta, PE, LEED AP BD+C, Mechanical Department Manager at SSOE, recently authored an article published in Area Development Magazine discussing the advantages of preliminary project planning, concise scheduling, and front-end loading (FEL) when renovating an existing manufacturing facility. Even experienced teams benefit from deliberate, phased steps early on in a project, which alleviate productivity issues and inefficiency later on. Gavin’s advice for creating significant savings: spend early. By creating room in the budget for early FEL, you’re investing in up-front engineering that consistently delivers long-term cost benefits, while avoiding unplanned downtime and the dreaded shut down.
