Constellation Place in Century City, California is known for its progressive environmental efforts. It is the recipient of the BOMA 360 Performance Program Designation and is officially certified by the city of Los Angeles and state of California as a green business. In 2013, the nearly 800,000-square-foot building was ready for its next transformative energy efficiency upgrade.
With very efficient mechanical and EMS systems already in place, the addition of LOBOS EE (Energy Efficiency) was the obvious next step. Thanks to the LOBOS installation, the Constellation Place central plant daytime load now runs at 0.34 to 0.65 kilowatts per ton on most days, compared to 0.80 to more than 1.00 kilowatts per ton prior to LOBOS, an average reduction of 30-50 percent. The smaller nighttime loads have been seeing consistent energy efficiency improvements of 50 percent or more.
The upgrade is slated to reduce Constellation Place’s annual energy use by more than 1.1 million kWh.
