Located in the Beltline district, Buildings B and C were built on the east half of the lost where the existing 227-11th Avenue building resided (now known as Building A). The three combined buildings are referred to as IBM Corporate Park - Buildings A, B & C. Buildings B and C are 6 floor, mid-rise office buildings and are interconnected between all three buildings via the underground parkade. Building B was completed in 2007, Building C in 2008.
With exception to the shared supplemental condenser water loop, the two new buildings operate independently on its own mechanical plant. The penthouse mechanical plants consist of forced draft boilers, variable speed central air handling unit, centrifugal chillers, and variable speed indoor cooling towers. The floors are ventilated and cooled via the supply air ducted to each floor from the main air handling unit in the penthouse mechanical room, and heated with hot water perimeter cabinets. Direct digital controls are utilized for the control of the variable air volume boxes and perimeter heating control valves. Heat from tenant supplemental cooling equipment can be rejected into the dedicated condenser water loop.
