Precise Air’s Queensland Installation team has developed a reputation for on time – on budget installations and has recently been awarded the SR5 upgrade at QIC’s Hyperdome Shopping Centre in Logan City, Brisbane.
Precise Air undertook the first of 5 major plant upgrades (SR-1) in 2014. Since then we have completed two other upgrades (SR2 and SR4), with SR-5 now underway.
All projects were carried out in a ‘live’ environment. During the replacement of major air conditioning plant it was imperative that QIC and their tenants were satisfied with temperature conditions and comfort levels for their customers.
Working alongside the design engineer, Trevor Ford of Ford Consulting, and the Facility Management team, Precise Air’s projects were completed well before programme completion date.
The installation of new equipment has improved energy consumption, as has the implementation of controls strategies, designed by Austec Automation, to manage the changing weather conditions throughout the year.
In 2017 Precise Air won the maintenance contract, giving us the ability to ensure the equipment is being maintained to achieve the optimal energy performance.
The SR projects included decommissioning and removing major refrigerant plant and replacing with new chilled water plants including new Powerpax chillers, pumps, and chilled water loop.
They also included removing the heat exchangers, installing new balance lines for the cooling towers and refurbishing them to new condition.
The existing MSSB’s in each SR plant room were replaced and the existing Building Management Control System was upgraded.
This latest project, SR5 will bring the total number of SMARDT-Powerpax chillers in Hyperdome to 11.
