The project involved the refurbishment of 14 low rise floors and conversion from a central air handling plant to a floor-by-floor air handling system and relocation of all mid-rise plant room equipment, including chillers, to the roof plant room.
The mid-rise plant room was then converted into two new office floors.
The staging and methodology for the works were critical as the building was fully occupied during the entire refurbishment process. Low-rise floors were progressively converted from the bottom up, to stand-alone operation and once converted, plant room equipment was decommissioned.
ESD considerations include the specification of the new chilled water refrigeration plant for its particular energy efficiency and performance to increase the NABERS energy rating of the building. In addition, the converted floors were equipped with high-efficiency variable volume air handling units and an economy cycle.
