Case Study: Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church

Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church – Religious Hub
and an architectural marvel
In the fast-paced New York megalopolis, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church is an oasis of love at the crossroads of the world. The church offers "the personal touch" of Jesus Christ amid the hustle and bustle of midtown Manhattan. Strategically located on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 55th Street the church provides opportunities for bite-sized involvement in fellowship, service, outreach, and education. To manage its heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church chose ABM Systems Inc., Alerton’s New York Metropolitan Area Authorized Dealer.
ABM Systems Inc. installed an Alerton Building Automation System (BAS) that allows the Church Facilities to monitor and control their HVAC equipment and overall system through a single location. The BMS system is remotely accessible using state-of-the art technology via Internet for offsite diagnostics during afterhours and ensures efficient management of the system and reduces system downtime as well.
