Silvery Towers

Location: San Jose, California, USA
Pinnacle created the 3D Models of the Silvery Towers (East Tower with 22 stories and the West Tower with 20 stories), a mixed-use residential construction with a total of 640 units including parking, kitchen, living room (3rd floor and above) to be constructed on a 1.91 acre site. The two towers will be post tensioned concrete structures, the exterior of which will be clad with a unitized curtain wall and window wall system. Moreover, the operable awning windows, juliet style balconies and sliding doors will be integral to the system and the Exterior balconies will have glass guardrails to allow maximum views. The parking garage is set below and between the towers with parking levels starting at 3 levels below grade and extending up to 2 levels above grade. Amenities of the buildings include a third floor common outdoor terrace with pool, jacuzzis,pool pavilion, fitness room and shared kitchen area. Retail will be located at level 1 and at a stand-alone retail pavilion starting at 1 level below grade, which is to be extended up to 2 levels above grade.

Value Added

We have raised 12+ RFIs with appropriate snaps to make the client understand the issues with the proposed solution (issues included design conflict, fixture location mismatch, pipe continuation missing or mismatch).

We have rerouted pipes, duct & piping layout to reduce fittings and cost, changed rectangular duct to round duct with duct calculator and used cheaper duct fittings to reduce project costs.

We have resolved 500+ clashes between MEP & Fire Protection trades, as well as among structure, duct & pipe for successful coordination among various services like Architecture, Structure, Electrical & Fire Protection (For instance Waste Pipe clashing with SM Grid, Pipes clashing with Electrical Fixture & Grids, Pipe Clashing with Electrical Conduit).
