KSM Vacuum chose SiliconX Construction to complete an extensive facelift and other improvements at its North American headquarters located at 102 Persian Drive in Sunnyvale.
Eye on Energy Conservation
Work on the façade of the 5,900 sq. ft. office building included replacement of all of the existing glass and related glazing with solar bronze, dual-paned windows to retain heat over the winter and reduce air conditioning during the warmer months — in the process significantly improving energy conservation and reducing costs.
ADA Improvements While Preserving Heritage Trees
Beyond the exterior upgrades, SiliconX completed improvements required to bring the building’s entry into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This involved additional landscaping revisions to ensure that a number of heritage trees framing the entrance to the building were protected and preserved.
Work continued over approximately four months as SiliconX dealt with the many demands that the COVID pandemic imposed on the work being done, as well as on project approvals. All improvements were completed on time and on budget.
