M+W Group Fab 8 Project Manager Werner Greyling explains a low tech idea for a high tech result. Before spray-painting the floor with specialized product, painters inflate beach balls to the specific sizes of over 2500 pipe inlets and outlets above the "clean rooms" at Fab 8, Module 1 facility of Global Foundries on Thursday morning. This keeps the paint product from dripping into the "clean room" a floor below.
The pace of indoor work has stepped up at the GlobalFoundries Fab 8 construction site. Hundreds of workers are now welding, fitting ducts, finishing rooms and installing the utilities in the 1.3 million-square-foot building.
