Bendigo Community Health Services (BCHS) is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a range of health programs and services in local communities. In 2014 CarbonetiX was asked to review the technical submission for a like-for-like replacement of a chiller at the Eaglehawk site. Considering the addition of the separate systems the 135kW chiller proposed would have been significantly oversized, resulting in a very small load on the new chiller(~60%) decreasing it’s running efficiency incurring higher capital expense and increased ongoing electricity costs. This scenario would have done little to improve the comfort of the building for the occupants.
The new VRV air conditioning system reduced energy consumption significantly and provided balanced air conditioning to the building’s occupants. During the installation, the duct work was found to be in poor condition and required unexpected modifications to improve the performance of the overall system. CarbonetiX worked with the mechanical contractor to address these issues. During the project the following results were achieved:
Maxine Plant, Manager Fleet and Facilities said: “We found CarbonetiX to be a wonderful asset as the project managers/consultants on this project due to their collaborative approach and the guidance they offered. Peace of mind for the client was gained from the professional and courteous approach CarbonetiX took to the project.”
