The controls upgrade was performed as part of an all-around energy efficiency upgrade of the building. All of the aging mechanical equipment in the building was replaced. Every window was replaced with energy efficient glazing; lighting controls were added as a part of this project. The building was to remain occupied during the upgrade. GSA mandated zero interruptions to tenants’ activities. There was no access to VAV boxes and most of the N2 bus wiring, as they were above ceilings that were heavily contaminated with asbestos. Zero downtime of mechanical systems and controls was allowed during normal business hours. The requirement was to achieve a completely seamless integration. ATS Automation was called in on the project because of their excellent history of complex integrations and well managed projects.
