According to the inspector’s report, the development consists of a new semiconductor wafer fabrication facility with a total stated floor area of 244,819 sq metres within the existing Intel manufacturing complex which will operate alongside existing site infrastructure and buildings.
According to the plans, the facility will cost US$4bn to develop in full and will employ about 3,500 construction workers over the two-year build programme.
The project will provide for an estimated 800 full-time permanent jobs on site.
The new buildings will include a three-storey main fabrication facility (FAB) with a floor area of 101,000 sq metres and will comprise IC assembly equipment within an open clean room supported by two utility floors, an air conditioning mezzanine and utility trenches.
