"First Ascent," which is the first phase of the multiphase project, just opened in the fall of 2002. With 139 residential condominiums, 17 retail and restaurant spaces, and a subterranean parking garage, the first phase encompasses about 280,000 sq ft in three buildings. The second phase, "22 Station," is scheduled to be completed in June 2003 and will include about 300,000 sq ft of condominium, parking garage, retail, and restaurant space in two buildings. Other phases will follow in the coming years.
For such a large mixed-use application, the owners required a comprehensive BAS that could efficiently monitor and meter energy usage, be user-friendly for the facility maintenance team, and minimize first costs to the project. Those were the main criteria used by Beaudin-Ganze Consulting Engineers Inc. (BGCE, Truckee, CA) in selecting the correct BAS - and other mechanical systems - for this very large project.
