As one of the original 40 year old buildings at Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane,
Building 3 – Clinical Sciences still had its original air handling plant when DTG Mech
Services were awarded the mechanical contracting tender for its refurbishment
in October 2016.
DTG Mech Services selected Air Design’s MODUtherm air handling units
(AHUs) to replace the original plant on all but one of the building’s five floors.
“MODUtherm had the right thermal rating, ticked all the boxes when it came
to fan selections, met the performance criteria and spatially the units suited
the installation very well,” said DTG Mech Services Director, Joe Briguglio.
With limited access to the plantrooms, MODUtherm
was also selected for its ability to be disassembled
in knockdown form, transported into the plantroom
and reassembled in position.
“I’ve been using Air Design for over 20 years. They are customer-focused, timely in their response and the quality of their drawings is excellent. All in all, it was a dream job.”
Through the collaboration of DTG Mech
Services and Air Design, the project was
successfully completed on time in June 2017.
