Santa Clara, CA– Business Development Manager Sam Russell announced today that his firm,Accel Air Systems Inc. was awarded the contract to renovate the HVAC system for a North San Jose office building that was recently acquired by San Rafael-based W3 Partners.
The building is located at 3939 North First Street and consists of 64,336 square feet. ProLogis was the seller and AllianceBernstein Real Estate Partners LP co-invested with W3 as equity partners after the building sale closed for an undisclosed sum.
General contractor OPI Commercial Builders was selected to renovate the building and Accel Air Systems was hired as the mechanical contractor to upgrade the heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
“The old system consisted of antiquated, constant-volume Rooftop Air Handlers which had been converted over the years to a variable-volume system that had outlived its useful lifespan. We are in the process of removing these and installing (3) large Trane Variable Air Volume Package Units with Variable Frequency Drives on the Supply Fan motor and the Power Exhaust Fans,” according to one of Accel’s owners, Fred Murray.
Murray added that High Efficiency Filters and 0-100% Economizers are also scheduled to be installed. The new HVAC units will then be integrated into a Building Management System via a BACnet Communication Interface. In addition, new-lined and rectangular duct will also be installed as part of a total package retrofit project.
