• Two 33-story residential towers featuring 455 condominiums

• 305,000 SF retail platform anchored by a 125,000 SF Neiman Marcus

CCI provided an overall project concept approach that addressed the numerous fire protection and life safety issues of the project. The approach included developing smoke control concepts for each high-rise tower and the retail platform.

In addition to developing the overall smoke control concepts, CCI coordinated the permit process for eleven separate smoke control permits. This included the review of architectural, mechanical, electrical and sprinkler plans to ensure the design conformed to the smoke control concepts. CCI also performed CONTAM modeling of the residential towers to ensure the Code’s performance criteria were met.

Important issues regarding numerous other fire protection and life safety concerns were also successfully resolved.
