>> We occasionally hear strange sounds coming from the mechanical room of the Cades Schutte building, which is across the hall from the Hawaii Business offices on Bishop Street.
So we asked to look inside. Here, building superintendent Freddie Realista and Jeff Doral take readings of the air conditioning system. The room houses everything to run the building: supply fans, chillers, house pumps, a water heater, tools and even Realista’s office. The major equipment dates back to when the building was built in 1969.
