Maintain the historic design of the building while upgrading the HVAC system to serve the heating and cooling needs of a diverse range of tenants.
The unique design of the building limited the space allowed for mechanical equipment.
The design needed to be flexible to accommodate the unique architecture of the roof and avoid wasting usable square footage on the ground floor.
LG was able to provide an architecturally flexible system that was able to fit the limited space available for mechanical equipment.
The VRF unit provided the perfect slim design with minimal ductwork required.
The flexibility of the VRF system allowed the 80 tons of outdoor units to be placed within the building’s clock tower.
VRF increased individual tenant comfort while requiring minimal routine maintenance.
The system allowed tenants the freedom to pick their precise level of comfort while maximizing the energy efficiency by balancing the heating and cooling demands across the entire system.
The dedicated LG design and field team was involved from project conception with the project design team to completion and beyond
The VRF system allowed for a flexible design with minimal ductwork to deliver a non-invasive HVAC system. Falamak Nourzad, design principle of Continuum Architects + Planners noted, ”The system had a lot of flexibility that allowed us to really be in inconspicuous areas without jeopardizing the look and feel of some of the high-quality aesthetic spaces.”
For nearly the same cost as a traditional system, The Mackie Building now has a highly reliable, energy-efficient HVAC solution that delivers comfort and conveniences for its tenants.
