Case Study: Park Avenue Tower

Park Avenue Tower – Class A Office
Building with excellent cityscape views
Park Avenue Tower is a high-quality, well-located, Class A office building situated immediately west of Park Avenue between 55th and 56th Streets, one block south of the Four Seasons hotel and close to the high end retailers on Madison and Fifth Avenues. It was built in 1986, making it one of the more modern and efficient properties in the Park Avenue corridor; its upper floors offer tenants Central Park views as well as excellent cityscape views looking south down Park Avenue. To upgrade and manage its Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system, Park Avenue Tower chose ABM Systems Inc., Alerton’s New York Metropolitan Area Authorized Dealer.
ABM Systems Inc. recently upgraded the electric controls of the existing base building system with more than 700 new Alerton BACtalk VisualLogic (VLC) controllers to ensure an efficient and comfortable environment for the buildings occupants. The Building Automation System is remotely accessible via the Internet allowing after hour off-site diagnostics and monitoring for quick response to alarms helping to minimize system downtime.

The Condenser Water and Hot Water Systems for Park Avenue Tower: Envision for BACtalk provides quick,
comprehensive views and helps the engineers check the system status in a glance and provide corrective
response without delay.
