Applied Materials’ Technology Center is a research and development facility that doubles as demonstration space for clients buying manufacturing equipment. The highly flexible Class 1 cleanroom can utilize virtually any tool bay configuration, including 300mm technology. A high level of vibration resistance has been built into the structure, creating an ideal environment for scanning electron microscopes, laser technologies, and other vibration-sensitive uses.

Designed for high visibility from prominent roadways, the Technology Center also provides a convenient link to the remainder of the Arques campus. The exterior skin is clean and techtonic in appearance, with a point-supported glass entry canopy highlighting the main entry.

Additionally, sales offices, open office areas, conference rooms, and administrative offices occupy 30,000 sf in the Technology Center.
