The historic Hollywood building that once was home to CBS headquarters finds itself in the spotlight as a standout in the world of energy efficiency.
Columbia Square, a mixed-use property built in 1938, recently earned LEED gold certification, thanks to cutting-edge ventilation technology and applications.
The project was highlighted last week at Greenbuild 2017 in Boston, the world’s largest conference and exposition dedicated to green and sustainable building. And a new case study published by LG Electronics details just how the company used its efficient HVAC solutions to bring about healthier indoor conditions and energy savings to the facility.
“LG became a partner and really helped us with our air conditioning solution,” said Richard Mount, senior vice president of construction services for Kilroy Realty Corp., which developed the property. “They worked with us hand in hand as we developed the drawings for the project. As we worked on the engineering for the project, they said that they would support us. They said that they were going to help us understand how it would all fit together, and they stepped up and got it done.”
Columbia Square, which features offices, residences, hotels and restaurants, was outfitted with LG’s variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system, the design of which could support the structure’s numerous windows and open spaces while delivering efficiency. The solution also cost nearly the same as a traditional HVAC system.
The LG system is quiet, reliable, low maintenance and easily configurable for the various tenants in the building, said Jason Lord, sales engineer for LG sales partner DMG Corp.
