Map It!


Arden's Centerpointe La Palma (1) located at Valley View and Orangethorpe in the City of La Palma, California is a 87,274 rentable square foot, four story office building that is part of a 12 building complex which was built in 1986. The building is 92% occupied. Centerpointe La Palma (1) has been equipped with a Siemens Energy Management System to control the building's HVAC system. Air conditioning is provided by a chilled water system. Two Dunham-Bush compressors rated at 120 tons each provide the chilled water. The building has a variable volume air distribution system that is pneumatically controlled. A gas fired hot water boiler provides hot water for the heating system. Heating is supplied to the perimeter zones only. The operation of the chillers, pumps, and air handlers is controlled by the Siemens Energy Management System. The system controls start/stop, compressor loading, temperature control, outside air economizer and static pressure. It also controls the reset program for the heating system.

As part of the company's on-going energy efficiency program, Centerpointe La Palma (1) was chosen to have a lighting retrofit. The retrofit consisted of modifying the existing three tube fixtures by adding reflectors, reducing the number of lamps from three to two, and replacing the standard F-40 lamps with energy efficient T-8 lamps. Furthermore, new occupancy sensors were added to the system.

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.
