Berg Brings Resources and Expertise to Cymer
Cymer’s Headquarters was completed by Bergelectric under the guidance of Hensel Phelps Construction in 2003.
While the technology sector was suffering at the time, one San Diego-based company who bucked the industry’s downward cycle was Cymer, Inc.
This rapidly growing firm is the world’s leading supplier of excimer light sources—producing the deep ultraviolet (DUV) photolithography sources so essential to today’s semiconductor marketplace. Cymer’s impressive growth spurt was evidenced by the expansion of its San Diego office, a $44-million project in which Bergelectric was tapped to play a major role.
The expansion was part of the company’s new business strategy which focused on expediting its technology commercialization efforts. To that end, the new facility was designed to maintain the high-volume production of the company’s comprehensive light-source portfolio.
The project consisted of two buildings totaling over 265,000-s.f. A two-story facility houses manufacturing and office space, and also features a café and training area. A three-story complex, the second structure, provides Cymer with office space and ample room to grow—offering future office and manufacturing space (in which Berg was later a part of). An adjacent five-story, 178,000-s.f. parking structure provides additional parking for the new buildings.
According to Bergelectric’s Project Manager, the Berg team—while working with Hensel Phelps Construction Company—assured that all electrical aspects of the building processes were carried out properly and on time.
Berg took charge of design assistance and installation of manufacturing facilities that included a central plant, office, café and parking structure. The biggest challenge for Berg crews was the fast-paced labor-intensive environment.
