Resignation Media

  • Project Location: Austin, TX
  • Owner/Client: Resignation Media
  • Project Description:

Resignation Media, owner of several brands such as the popular website The Chive, relocated its headquarters from California to Austin. The company now occupies the 12,000 square foot space that used to be the Shoreline Grill along Lady Bird Lake.

DXS was selected to provide VRF equipment to the remodeled space due to their previous experience with the project’s contractors. With several big renovations, including raised ceilings, VRF fit well with the modern architecture and proved easy to install.

DXS provided 40 tons of Daikin heat pump systems, complete with ducted units and cassettes and Daikin controls. Along with the money saved in energy costs month-to-month, the owner also received rebates from Austin Energy for using VRF equipment.

Retail & Office Key Considerations

Architects and engineers working in the retail and professional office building markets consistently face the same scenario:  the ever-changing need to reconfigure tenant space.  As businesses change, their space requirements can fluctuate wildly.  They move, they expand, they downsize.  And because they do, DXS works alongside architects, engineers and owners to design VRF systems that can be configured – and reconfigured – to meet on-going and changing tenant HVAC requirements.

Key Considerations

  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Designed as a modular system to any specifications required by the project
  • System is easily reconfigured after installation
  • Tight temperature controls of multiple zones for multiple tenants
  • Experienced staff and products that have the ability to interface with a wide variety of control systems
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures:  onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment locally stocked
