The engineering design team, working under strict California energy and seismic codes, designed the building’s systems to be self-sustaining in case of power outages.
Air handlers were designed to serve each tenant floor, and take in and distribute fresh air to each tenant space, improving the environmental quality. System controls use digital intelligence gathering devices to monitor the dynamic use of the space. Individual air boxes have the ability to supply more or less conditioned air to meet the specific demands of the users and maximize energy efficiency.
Each tenant has access to building exhaust to connect equipment requiring exhaust air that might otherwise compromise the environmental quality of the space.
The lighting systems integrate the newest lamp technologies to provide highly illuminated, yet energy efficient, environments. All lighting systems meet California’s Title 24 requirements. Lighting control systems provide automated control of lights to take advantage of the high levels of day lighting designed into the facility. The 3161 Building has optimized day lighting opportunities through the unique design of its exterior, as well as its floor to floor heights.
