The mechanical systems includes modifications to the base building VAV system and a 100 ton supplemental glycol system to provide 24/7 heating, cooling and ventilation for the Network Operations Center (NOC) and other mission critical spaces. A water-cooled, self-contained VAV system is used for HVAC to the NOC. The tenant is provided with a dedicated Building Automation System (BAS) to control their supplemental systems. The new system is interfaced with the base building system BAS to minimize the number of hours of operation for the supplemental system as well as to minimize construction costs.
