Map It!


Arden's City Centre Fountain Valley located on Brookhurst Avenue in the city of Fountain Valley, California is a 202,000 rentable square foot office complex consisting of three 3-story office buildings and a three level parking structure. The property is 100% occupied. This property is air conditioned by a chilled water system. The system has three Trane chillers, and is capable of providing 1050 tons of refrigeration. There are two Baltimore Aircoil cooling towers and assorted chilled and condenser water pumps. The chilled water plant is located in the parking structure. There are two supply fans on each floor of the three buildings that provide tempered air to the tenant spaces. Heat is provided by electric heating  elements located in the hot ducts. An Andover EMS system controls the HVAC system.

As part of the company's ongoing energy efficiency program, City Centre Fountain Valley, constructed in 1982, was chosen as a candidate for a lighting retrofit. The retrofit consisted of replacing the existing F-40 lamps with high efficiency T-8 lamps, installing energy efficient ballasts and occupancy sensors. This retrofit was completed in 1999. In addition, in December 2000, a 230 kilowatt photovoltaic system was installed at the property. At the time of its installation, it was the largest solar array of its kind in the country.

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.
