515 Congress has 1 Air Handler Unit (AHU) per floor and upgraded the BAS (Building Automated System) in 2019. The updated BAS includes chilled water valves which allow the building to reduce energy expenditure when cooling the building. The BAS design allows engineers to change the temperature at each set point throughout the building remotely. Each AHU is equipped with MERV-13 filters which inactivates 99.9% of airborne microbes. Our tenant portal, Tenant Eye, is designed to allow tenants to request after-hour HVAC themselves, triggering the system automatically.
The plumbing systems include the municipal domestic water service, which supplies domestic cold and hot water systems, irrigation piping, and fire suppression sprinkler systems. The domestic cold and hot water piping systems supplies the building entirely with water. Domestic water pressure is boosted by a duplex pump system, located in the lower-level mechanical room.
