Agere Systems Inc. - Optoelectronics Center

Agere Systems’ Optoelectronics Center is one of the most advanced optoelectronics manufacturing and assembly facilities in the world. The building is 150,990 SF in size including 122,670 SF of manufacturing / assembly space, 18,320 SF of office space and a 10,000 SF mechanical mezzanine.

Building construction is primarily structural steel frame with metal panel exterior for manufacturing space with brickface on the office area. The building is connected to pre-existing facilities by a brick and curved-glass corridor. The entire facility is sprinklered with a three-hour fire separation between office and manufacturing uses. The roof system is hot-applied Siplast. The project had $1.2 million of site work including a 500-space parking lot, new truck turn- around, landscaping and utility trenching.

Utilities are provided via a new underground utility tunnel connector from a pre-existing central utilities plant. A new nitrogen storage facility was also constructed as part of the project.
