Project Description

555 California Street includes the 52-story Bank of America Building and a 16-story annex totaling almost 2 million square feet of Class A office space located in the heart of the Financial District in San Francisco. Its unique “”bay window”” architectural style was designed by renowned architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Wurster, Bernardi & Emmons in 1969.

Acutherm has a long standing relationship with the building owner, resulting in numerous renovations and improvements for several tenants, including legal and capital management firms, such as Dodge & Cox, AllianceBernstein L.P., and Kirkland and Ellis LLP. These spaces feature various models of Therma-Fuser™ Systems and configuration options.

Building HVAC system:

  • Large central AHU providing cool air to building up four risers, each floor in 4 quadrants
  • Large reheat on takeoff to each floor (4 per floor)
  • Perimeter induction units, 2-pipe, provide ventilation and supplemental cooling and heating (manual control by occupant)

Retrofit Floors:

  • Heat pumps added in perimeter areas to supplement building cooling and heating
  • PIM used to reduce medium pressure to low pressure and to control pressure
