A.O. Reed installed all plumbing, heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems. Because the building has two structures (a 27-story high-rise and a connecting 3-story structure) which are seismically independent of each other, all interconnecting piping and ventilating duct systems required special seismic vibration isolation. All sinks on the first and second floors of the high-rise and those in the 3-story structure are connected to a sewage ejection system. Eight duplex sump pumps were installed to remove ground water caused by underground parking and floor levels. Another unique feature was the installation of two 17′ exhaust fans, the largest ever installed in San Diego. These fans are used to exhaust the carbon monoxide fumes from the parking structure.
