Molded Fiber Glass CP Provides Fibreglass Forms to The University Of Albany

19 April 2012

Molded Fiber Glass Construction Products (MFG) was chosen to provide fiberglass concrete forms that created the fab level for the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University of Albany.

According to MFG, the new building totals 280,000 square feet, and features a 50,000 square foot clean room, at the centre of the building.  They say the new facility, NanoFab Xtension, will house “the Global 450” which includes Intel, IBM, Samsung, Global Foundries and TSMC. Their research will focus on the newest military applications, green/environmental technologies and innovations in the health care industries. 

MFG explain that they provided 1,410 waffle forms in the fall of 2011 to form the fab level.  They worked closely with CECO Concrete Construction to create the design of the ceiling. Joe Kusiak, MFG Sales says he “has worked closely for many years with CECO Concrete Construction, they know exactly what we can do for them it just makes the whole project run much smoother.”
