Abstract
In order to accommodate new instrumentation arriving in early 2018, the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) converted one of its coudé spectrograph rooms into a cleanroom. The new instrumentation required ISO 8 conditions with a desired performance of ISO 7. The turn-key solutions available all provide much higher levels of performance at prices well outside the budget of the project, so we modified the room using a more cost effective in-house approach. We discuss the requirements of the new instrumentation, new administrative rules and procedures, changes made to the room and new equipment, and the resulting performance.
