Cedars-Sinai Medical Office Towers
These twin towers contain over 350,000 square feet of medical office suites connected to the famed Cedars-Sinai Hospital and across the street from the Beverly Center. The towers are joined by a common underground electrical service. This is one of the first projects in Los Angeles requiring a Life Safety Support System. Besides designing the two high-rise buildings and two adjacent multi-floor parking structures, we were also hired to design all of the tenant improvements because of our ability to quickly engineer plans and obtain city approval.
Great Western Savings & Loan Computer Facility
This multi-building “campus” headquarters is an outstanding example of a well-conceived solution to a client’s need. Their heart of the system is a 20-megawatt cogeneration plant whereby electrical energy is generated for use in operating the general lighting and power for the offices, as well as the massive 60-hertz and 415-hertz iso-redundant UPS systems for the computer facility. The waste heat from the five large turbines is collected and used for the heating and air conditioning needs. An energy management system senses evaluate and control all energy usage.
