Triad Provides New Boilers for this Historic Landmark Building
The Candler Building, located at 119 Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia, was built in 1906 and personally developed by the wealthy businessman and philanthropist, Asa Candler, who founded Coca-Cola in 1888. This building has set the standard for downtown Atlanta for over 100 years.
The 17-story, 220,000 sq. ft. building was Atlanta’s first major architectural mark on the 20th century while also being the City’s tallest and best-equipped office building for more than 20 years. The building still functions as office space for some of Atlanta’s most prominent law and real estate firms.
This neo-Renaissance building has rare detail consisting of brass, marble, Tiffany glass,and mahogany accents. It has an elaborately-carved facade and stunning lobby with marble busts, ornamental friezes, and hand-carved mahogany elevator cabs.
In 1977 it was placed on the National Register of Historical Places and designated a Landmark Building by the City of Atlanta, meaning that it is “of exceptional importance to the city” and that its “demolition would represent an irreparable loss to the city.”
After a more recent renovation program, The Candler Building once again provides a prestigious location with state of the art building systems inside historic architecture.
Triad Boilers were part of this upgrade. Six Series 900 SH boilers with Powerflame gas-fired boilers with input of 900,000 Btu’s are heating the building. The total input of the Triad heating plant is 5,500,000 Btu’s. The boilers are monitored and controlled by a control panel with outdoor reset to maximize the efficiency of these modular boilers.
Undoubtedly one of the finest high rise structures in the Central Business District of Atlanta, the Candler Building is an outstanding example of early twentieth century architecture. This building is not only a work of art, but also a testament to Asa Candler, who wanted it to “last for centuries”.
