building

Arden's Century Park Center located at 9911 West Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles, California is a 243,404 rentable square foot building that is 85% occupied. As part of the company's ongoing energy efficiency program, Century Park Center, constructed in 1972, was chosen as a candidate for a new Energy Management System. Other equipment includes a new high efficiency Variable Frequency Drive York chiller, two new high efficiency boilers with Micro Therm controller, Power Factor correction equipment, Power Planners and a building wide lighting retrofit. These additions were conceived as part of the overall efficiency enhancement at the property.

The Siemens Energy Management System installed controls fan coil operation, chiller staging, load shedding, start/stop timing and Direct Digital Control. We control reset on chilled and condenser water temperature (through variable speed drive control).

A typical Arden lighting retrofit was accomplished by replacing T-12 light tubes with T-8 light tubes and installing electronic ballasts. All incandescent and fluorescent exit signs were replaced with LED exit signs using only two watts per fixture. Also installed were occupancy sensors throughout the building to reduce unoccupied lighting energy.

In addition to all the lighting and mechanical upgrades, many no cost / low cost measures were taken that reduced energy consumption. These included:

Arden's engineering department recognizes the financial impact of electrical demand charges, and as such, targets their operation towards peak demand reduction. By monitoring electrical demand levels and establishing a peak target, the energy management systems are programmed to selectively reset equipment to keep the demand within defined limits while never compromising occupant comfort.  

The payback for these initiatives is approximately three and a half years with a marked increase in tenant satisfaction and comfort.

In a continuing effort to reduce operating costs, optimum start and stop times have resulted in a further reduction of energy.

Arden Realty, Inc., with over 240 buildings in seven markets, is currently the largest commercial office landlord in Southern California, operating over 18 million rentable square feet with an additional 285,000 square feet under development. We have completed 32 HVAC plant retrofits, 47 EMS systems, 20 carbon monoxide sensor projects and 117 individual building lighting retrofits, including occupancy sensor installation. Arden Realty has also completed seven cogeneration plants and one solar photovoltaic array with a total capacity of three megawatts.
