Arden's Bristol Plaza property located at 6167 Bristol Parkway, Culver City, California is an 84,014 rentable square foot building that is 90% occupied. Visit our website at

As part of the company's ongoing energy efficiency program, Bristol Plaza, constructed in 1986, was chosen as a candidate for upgrades that include a building wide lighting retrofit and the installation of new HVAC equipment. These additions were conceived as part of the overall efficiency enhancement at the property.

A typical Arden lighting retrofit was accomplished by replacing T-12 light tubes with T-8 light tubes and installing electronic ballasts. All the incandescent and fluorescent exit signs were replaced with LED exit signs using only 2 watts per fixture. Also installed were occupancy sensors throughout the building to reduce unoccupied lighting energy.

The Carrier Controls Energy Management System controls all fan operation, compressor staging, load shedding, and start/stop timing. We control and reset the supply air temperature as well as static pressure (through variable speed drive control).

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 3.5 years with a marked increase in tenant satisfaction and comfort.

Arden Realty, Inc. with over 240 properties, is currently the largest commercial office landlord in Southern California, operating over 18.5 million rentable square feet. We are currently planning or constructing 20 HVAC plant retrofits, 30 EMS systems, 15 carbon monoxide sensor projects, and 100 whole building lighting retrofits, including occupancy sensor installation.
