The Pipe Trades Training Center is housed in a state-of-the-art, 102,000-square-foot facility in San Jose, CA. The main entry courtyard is the face of the facility and offers a seating area that overlooks the surrounding landscape. The native oak trees and poppies inspired the panoramic cut steel panels that adorn the facade and the perimeter fence surrounding the utilities. The cut steel is a combination of patterns and shapes that create an impression of these organic forms.
