Renovation Versus New Construction for High Technology Manufacturing Facilitiesby Thomas F. Mackin, Pizzagalli Construction Co, South, Burlington, VT, USA,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Designing for High Technology Use
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to compare the differences between renovation and new construction for High Technology Manufacturing Facilities. The standards of quality, cost, and schedule for renovation or new construction projects are generally set by the Owner's Design Criteria or Statement of Requirements. The Design Construction Team needs to thoroughly evaluate the advantages of these two construction approaches. Generally, new construction is recommended over renovation and is driven by the parameters of the clean room environment, not cost and schedule.
