Energy Center 1 & 2

Energy Center 1 & 2

Location: Houston, Texas

Challenge

Energy Center I and II, two high-rise buildings, are the first speculative office buildings to be built in Houston’s energy corridor in over eight years as a LEED project. LEED is a third-party certification program that is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

Solution

Comfort Systems USA South Central contributed to the energy efficient and sustainable design by supplying energy efficient HVAC systems, piping and equipment for the buildings and by installing high efficiency chillers, variable volume pumps and air handling units, non-chemical, pulsed-power, water treatment system, and a state of the art building automation. The building

required the use of a carbon dioxide based demand controlled ventilation system to reduce the amount of ventilation air in the building to maintain proper indoor air quality. Comfort Systems USA South Central also supplied and installed this system.

A Closer Look

In partnership with Manhattan Construction, Comfort Systems USA South Central stayed on schedule, within budget and met the goals of the client. Comfort Systems USA South Central also provided special material handling to meet LEED indoor air quality requirements, including covering all ductwork and air moving equipment openings to prevent unwanted introduction of dust and special filters during construction, startup and commissioning of the systems.
