Fox Plaza

Los Angeles, CA

About:

34-story, 649,000 sq. ft. office building; 3-1,000 ton chillers, 2-1,500 ton rooftop cooling towers, FRP duct throughout with a 6-level parking garage. Three 1,000-ton centrifugal chillers and two rooftop cooling towers were installed. Fiberglass duct board was used extensively throughout. Fan power is not used during the economizer cycle. Fresh air is drawn in at ground level through a tunnel under the structure to the core. A diagonally divided vertical shaft supplies fresh air on one side, and uses the stack effect on the other side to passively draw the exhaust air to the roof level. Specially factory-built air handling units with variable-speed drives were shipped complete and placed on each floor. A computer-driven chilled-water bypass system shuts off the chillers when optimum cooling is reached. VAV boxes with electrical resistance heating coils provide perimeter heat.
