USA: Carrier is to own and operate the heating and air conditioning plant in a Cooling-as-a-Service initiative for a major new financial centre in Pittsburgh.
In an agreement with Office Partners XXIII Block G1 LLC, Carrier will design, build, own and operate the heating and air conditioning plant at the new FNB Financial Center in Pittsburgh.
Supported by its advanced Abound digital controls and BluEdge services capabilities, Carrier’s Cooling-as-a-Service promises to deliver high energy efficiency, uptime and comfort over the life of the contract while reducing operational cost risk for the building owner.
FNB Financial Center, is a 26-storey mixed-use tower that leads the redevelopment of the historic Pittsburgh neighbourhood and will serve as the corporate headquarters of FNB, the parent company of First National Bank.
The Lower Hill Redevelopment, located on 28 acres directly across from PPG Paints Arena in downtown Pittsburgh, is a planned, mixed-use community with plans for offices, entertainment/retail, 1,200 residential units and a hotel.
Carrier helped design and configure the 1,250-ton central plant to include Carrier chillers combined with high-efficiency condensing boilers that are continuously optimised by advanced controls. The plant will be backed by Carrier’s Abound IoT platform for remote monitoring including advanced analytics for continuous commissioning and diagnostics.
