The California public employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) is a public pension fund. The new CalPERS headquarters are based on the existing Lincoln Plaza North and were opened in 2005. The $192 million project includes over one million gross square-feet of space for offices, retail, parking and housing. With its two U-shaped, four and six stories tall buildings, it allows more light enter the interior space. Designed by the architects at Pickard Chilton to be more energy-efficient than a comparable building, the new CalPERS headquarters were one of the first LEED® projects and achieved LEED® Gold rating.
 
The new CalPERS headquarters should use as much of the daylight as possible be and be more energy-efficient than a comparable building. To meet those requirements TROX USA provided passive chilled beams Type PKV for dissipation of high loads of internal heat and to fully utilize the energy benefits.
The installation of TROX passive chilled beams can remove 200 to 650 BTUH of sensible heat. In new buildings, like the CalPERS headquarters, they offer low investment costs while providing high cooling capacity. The new headquarters were designed to use 38 percent less energy. The project was one of the first LEED® Gold certified buildings by the U.S Green Building Council for its efforts to environmental sustainability.
