Berg Delivers Superior Design Assist Services
Even the Royal Family would feel right at home in Queensridge Towers, part of a European-inspired luxury master-planned community. Located in the Queensridge area of Las Vegas, this $150-million, high-rise condominium development was the crowning achievement of Queensridge LLC, Executive Home Builders (EHB) and Peccole Nevada Corp. Phase I of this unique complex, which consisted of 220 units in two 18-story towers, is an alternative for buyers who are seeking to combine the benefits of owning a stately home with part-time residency and low maintenance.
According to EHB Project Manager Bill Kionka, the lineage of the building concept for Queensridge Towers can be traced back to an era when owners of stylish New York penthouses could step out of an elevator into the foyer of their private residence. Berg is teamed with Perini Building Company on the shell buildings and EHB for tenant improvements to help make this posh privilege a reality.
JMA Architecture, designers at the forefront of the Las Vegas construction boom, created the art-nouveau, copper-roof exterior that features an abundance of stonework—an EHB trademark. The talented architects have produced an air of aristocracy with such amenities as original roman baths in the spas, wine cellar and private garages within the two-level subterranean parking facility.
Efficient Solutions for Intricate Power-Supply Systems
In a design-assist capacity, Bergelectric was actively involved in coordinating with both JMA and electrical designer Harris Consulting Engineers. “We worked hand-in-hand with Perini and Harris to create an efficient design and eliminate excessive costs,” stated Berg’s Preconstruction Manager. “Our team carefully worked through the details during the preconstruction phase, which facilitated a smooth installation process,” he added.
Berg developed several cost-saving solutions for the intricate power-supply systems required for a building of this complexity. Creative contributions included vertical distribution using bus-duct risers and electronic metering, as well as a central-point, low-voltage distribution system.
As Perini concurrently constructed both towers, Berg supplied and distributed power to each structure and provided fire-alarm, tel/data and CATV services. To increase efficiency and reduce costs on the interior electrical work, Berg developed prefab systems for each of the condo-unit layouts, which range from 1,300-s.f. to 14,000-s.f. in size.
