Big building projects get boost from Xylem’s Bell & Gossett pumps
Some of the biggest building projects in New York, Los Angeles and Detroit are using pumps and other equipment from Xylem’s Bell & Gossett brand. Learn about the innovative pumping and HVAC solutions at One Manhattan Square, the new Los Angeles Stadium and Little Caesars Arena.
Bell & Gossett is a leading manufacturer of pumps, valves, heat exchangers and accessories for commercial buildings. On three new interactive pages, you can see how Bell & Gossett equipment is used on massive building projects that are changing the skylines of New York, Los Angeles and Detroit.
Providing climate comfort at One Manhattan Square
Due to open this year, One Manhattan Square is an 80-story vertical village, full of luxury amenities like a full-size basketball court, cigar room, culinary lounge and Pilates studio. Designing hydronic heating and cooling systems for the building required pumps that could achieve high operating pressures.
Bell & Gossett’s robust and efficient Series e-1510, Series e-80 and VSX pumps were selected to meet the demands of providing climate comfort to the 800 residences. The space-saving design and multiple configurations of the pumps can reduce the pump-room footprint by up to 40 percent compared to traditional split-case and vertical inline pumps.

During the Super Flush at Little Caesars Arena involving 235 toilets and 120 urinals, the Bell & Gossett Technoforce four-pump variable speed pressure-boosting system adjusted speed and flow to meet demand without a hitch.
