Insights: Building Energy Use Reduced With Complex HVAC Controls & Free Cooling

A global financial firm consolidated its practices into one location in Manahattan, which was considered to be critical infrastructure for trading operations.

To enhance building energy management and building efficiency, the space required complex and redundant equipment and HVAC controls for the chiller plant, which HIGHMARK-NY helped develop and deploy. The system also utilizes free-cooling technology that allows it to produce 100 percent of its cooling capacity without using an AC compressor during winter conditions to enhance building energy management.
