ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the replacement of HVAC systems of the North Point Towers in Cleveland, Ohio. The North Point has opted to create a central-plant chilled-water system which is controlled by a Trend IQ3 solution to centralize all cooling functions in the two buildings. K Co. has installed variable-frequency drives (VFDs) on the existing building and tower pumps as well as on the new air-handling-units (AHU).
