Phase I plant, ZyXEL Communications Corporation
Located on a corner lot between Chuan-hsin Second Road and Yen-fa Fifth Road within the Park, the rectilinear site, has a five meter drop in the longitudinal direction. The design placed the underground parking entrance at the lower end of the property, and the service loading area at the higher end; the main entrance faces southeast, while the four story circular administration zone is placed on the north side opposite the public park for good view.
The ground floor of the factory is six meters in height and will be used for automated production of machinery, primarily modems. Exterior of the building combines silver-gray glazed tile with red enamelled window frames and reflective glass to create a high-tech image. In order to minimize initial investment and interference of production and office work due to future expansion construction, Phase I work includes all the administration needs as well as one floor of production zone and two floors of testing zone. Phase II factory will be superimposed on top of the Phase I factory, along with two more floors for testing.
