Bala performed MEP/FP engineering services for the original construction of this 460,000 square foot, 26-story high-rise and then completed renovation to the building in 2017.  

Renovations included the existing fitness center, mechanical areas, and hotel back-of-house offices.  Existing office areas were converted to a new fitness room, the existing fitness center was converted to three guest rooms and portions of the main mechanical rooms were fit-out as new back-of-house offices.  Renovations were also made to the building vestibule while the entry door was replaced and a new entry wind screen was constructed.

The original core and shell services featured central cooling and utility steam to heating hot water plants; four-pipe vertical fan coils serving hotel guest rooms and residential condominiums and a fully automated building control system.
