WINDOW & PTAC REPLACEMENT
100 & 110 BLEECKER STREET, NEW YORK, NY
Silver Towers is a two-building, individually landmarked residential complex in Greenwich Village. Both 30-story buildings are freestanding poured-in-place concrete structures designed by I.M. Pei.
The project consisted of the replacement of 1,662 windows and 1,432 PTACs from the second through thirtieth floors of both buildings. The work included acoustical testing to determine an appropriate exterior wall assembly package to meet the local environmental designation requirements. The new wall assembly consisted of new replacement windows and glazing, sound attenuated PTACs, gypsum board walls and limp mass barriers, and sound attenuating below the window construction. Since Silver Towers is individually landmarked, the new assembly packages had to meet the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission’s requirements as well as the city mandated sound ratings.
