With LEED Platinum certification as a major design goal for One Bryant Park, the building is constructed mostly of recycled and recyclable materials. It features environmental technologies, such as filtered underfloor displacement air ventilation, advanced double-wall technology, and translucent insulating glass that permits maximum daylight.
It also has a state-of-the-art, 5.1-megawatt low-emission cogeneration plant that provides a clean, efficient power source for a portion of the building’s energy requirements.
Ideal with condensing boilers in low temperature applications, AERCO’s SmartPlate water-to-water heaters deliver ±4°F temperature control. Available in brazed plate, single wall and plate and frame, double wall configurations, each <10ft2 heater ships fully assembled including load monitoring PID controller, sensors, electronic valve, potable water side circulator with clean out connections, DHW drain valve and shut-off valves and inlet strainers on both the boiler water and DHW sides. Units support remote monitoring and BAS integration.
