The manufacture of LEDs presents quite a challenge in terms of facility build as a very clean production environment is needed. LEDs are made using similar processes to semiconductors, involving mono-crystalline substrates deposited on wafers using various process that involve gas and materials that need to be contained.

In the case of manufacturer Microelectronica, there was an added problem in that the area planned by the company for the LED facility was located in the cellar of a former semiconductor factory, which presented both limited space and high levels of humidity.

As the general contractor, the engineers from Fraunhofer IPA not only planned the facility but also co-ordinated all the construction work of the approximately 1200m2 facility, and were tasked with ensuring that the turnkey LED factory could begin operation by the end of 2012.
