A confidential Korean chemicals manufacturer is investing in a new manufacturing plant for the production of several product lines of electrolyte solution for lithium-ion electrolytic cells. Gresham Smith was selected to act as the program manager for the project as well as provide full architecture and engineering design services. Plant operations will receive raw liquid and powder chemicals which will then be mixed and stored in canisters and ISO filling tanks.

The plant will consist of 220,000 square feet of building area and 50,000 square feet of outdoor tank storage. The main production building consists of raw material storage including refrigerated storage areas, mixing/production activities, finished product storage and the associated material/product testing. The facility will also include a two-story administration office to support business and plant activities. Due to the sensitive nature of the raw materials and liquid electrolyte product, strict environment control is required in designated areas including dry room, ISO 8 clean room, refrigerated warehouse, and raw product storage and moisture removal areas. In addition, because of the large amount of space classified as high-hazard flammable (H3), enhanced fire protection measures have been implemented to deliver a facility that is compliant with the various governing codes.
