Woolworths Arden Gardens-small

Once a working class suburb, North Melbourne is now a snappy, stylish strip with pretty terrace houses, award-winning cafes and a happening arts scene.

Its urban coolness has been further enhanced with addition of Arden Gardens, a new residential building which combines the best of local retail with residential luxury.

A collection of contemporary 1-4 bedroom apartments in two residential towers with stunning, uninterrupted city views, the building has embraced the new norm for premium, mixed-use development by combining a vibrant retail precinct at street level.

With Woolworths as the anchor tenant, this on-site retail precinct includes a variety of specialty retail stories conveniently on offer for both residents and the general public.

When mechanical consultant for the Arden Gardens Woolworths project, JBA Consulting Engineer, went in search of an air handling solution, Armcor was the logical selection.

The companies had worked together on multiple Woolworths’ stores.

JBA was also confident Armcor could meet the exacting requirements of the project: an air handling solution designed and built to Woolworths’ specifications that would enable an enjoyable shopping experience for supermarket customers.

The result is a custom-built solution capable of providing the main trading area with 14,500 l/sec supply air and 4,200 l/sec fresh air and which incorporates economy cycle dampers, direct expansion cooling coils, a heating coil, deep bed air filters and EC plug fans.

Armcor is thrilled to have contributed to yet another successful shopping complex development.

Plaza Premium_small

Plaza Premium Lounge is the world’s first independent airport lounge provider. Its facilities are open to all travellers, regardless of the airline or travel class they are using and has changed the perception that airport lounges should be reserved for premium travellers only.

The lounges are also focussed on giving travellers a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the airport by providing top-notch services and facilities for those arriving, departing and transiting an airport.

This includes comfortable seating, an enticing food and beverage selection, shower with amenities, private resting suites, VIP rooms, recharging stations, complimentary Wi-Fi, computer workstations, and so on. The goal is to make the airport experience seamless and effortless.

A global brand, the airport lounge network has facilities in Brisbane, Sydney and more recently in Melbourne.

As the first airport lounge network to achieve ISO 9001:2008 certification, Plaza Premium Lounge is committed to providing consistently high services and continual improvement for valued customers.

So when contractor, Infinite Group, went in search of an air-conditioning unit for the new lounge at Melbourne Airport, its requirements were very exacting: it needed a high quality slimline air handling unit that incorporated bag filters, carbon filters, electric heating elements, a DX coil and energy efficient fans.

This was not something that could be ordered off the shelf.

Armcor was best placed to provide these requirements.
Combined with a Temperzone outdoor condenser, the air handling solution which is now fully installed provides the high levels of comfort expected of the new airport lounge.

Silos Tasmania

Housed in a 1960’s building containing four large grain silos, the Peppers Silo Hotel is a new state-of-the-art hotel complex overlooking the idyllic Tamar River Basin and Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Tasmania.

The 35-meter high silos have long been an iconic landmark on the edge of the town.

This post-war heritage building has now been reimagined into a sophisticated 9-storey hotel compete with function and entertainment facilities, offering sweeping views over the meandering Tamar river.

Designed within the original silos, the hotel complex includes the addition of a brand-new North tower, providing a contemporary contrast and adding character to the hotel.

Armcor supplied three packaged air-conditioning energy recovery ventilator (ERV) units to service the iconic hotel’s function centre.

Designed to provide the necessary fresh air while also recovering energy from exhaust air, the great advantage of the units is that heating and cooling is packaged together in one unit, making installation and servicing simple and efficient.

These economy cycle units will provide the bulk of cooling capacity for the function centre, dramatically reducing running costs.

Armcor worked in conjunction with its distributor, HVAC Supplies, to design and deliver these state-of-the-art heat recovery units to this outstanding Tasmanian icon while leading Tasmanian contracting company, Degree C, managed all installation work.

Energy Recovery Ventilation

merinda-central-2 erv

Get the Health and Ventilation Benefits of a Energy Recovery Systems in your next project.

In the past, building owners and facilities managers reduced fresh air levels to save on energy costs at the expense of health. This reduction is no longer necessary due to the increased availability and code requirements for Air to Air Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV). Air to Air Heat Exchangers reduce fresh air ventilation costs by up to 80% by using energy from building exhaust air. In addition to lowering operating expenses, ERV’s help control humidity and often pay for themselves by lowering heating and air conditioning capital equipment costs.
Without an energy recovery solution in place, air that is treated for temperature and humidity will simply leave a building. The work that has already been done to heat, cool, humidify or dehumidify the space will need to be repeated for the incoming fresh air multiple times per hour. Implementing an ERV solution helps building owners meet ventilation code, lower operating costs, and improve indoor air quality.

Humidity
On warm humid days, humidity contained in fresh outdoor air often overpowers the air conditioning system and creates a challenge for facility managers to keep tenants comfortable. If humidity is a concern, select an energy recovery ventilator that utilizes an enthalpy transfer media, such as an energy recovery wheel, to overcome this challenge. Energy recovery wheels remove up to 80 percent of the humidity from the fresh air before it contacts the air conditioning coil; the result is air that is cool, comfortably dry, and does not contribute to the formation of mould and mildew.

Productivity
According to the EPA, a school’s indoor environment can have a significant impact on children’s learning and productivity. Studies have shown links between poor IAQ and children’s health problems, reduced performance scores and increased absenteeism. Similarly, the productivity of a company’s workforce is dramatically impacted when forced to work in a less-than-ideal environment. ERV’s deliver affordable fresh air to ensure a healthy and productive environment without the energy penalty historically attributed to fresh air.

Health
With half of all illnesses attributable to indoor airborne contaminants, the EPA has declared IAQ a public health priority. Federal, state, and local building codes have followed suit in mandating minimum outdoor air ventilation rates based upon the size and function of buildings. ERV is the only ventilation strategy that can simultaneously reduce the levels of all indoor pollutants for health and reduce the size and operating cost of the HVAC system.

Cost Savings
It is important to note that including an ERV in your HVAC design provides substantial savings, both up front and over time. A facility manager can expect minimal or no added first cost to installing an ERV in a retrofit or new construction project. Additionally, first cost may be offset with energy recovery incentives offered by many utilities and local, state, and federal governments.

Contact ARMCOR AIR SOLUTIONS to discuss how an ERV could be your next solution.
Armcor Air Solutions are one of Australia’s most experienced ERV manufacturers and can create a custom system for your next project.

Climate Change

We can argue all day about climate change, but one thing for sure is that we do experience both ends of the spectrum.

Climate change has the wonderful capacity to make things hotter and colder simultaneously, with the strangest of results.

As temperatures plunge in the US, frozen sharks have washed ashore after drowning with frozen water in their gills and in southern Florida, iguanas have fallen out of palm trees frozen solid.

In Sydney it has been a similar story but opposite. As temperatures soared to 47.3C hundreds of bats fell out of trees, dead and cooked alive.

At the end of the day, the weather is still the weather and will remain the topic of conversation.

Stuck in the middle, we humans are adopting a preference for regulated temperatures in every indoor setting, whether at home, work, shopping or relaxing.

The requirements for indoor comfort are increasing and with the increasing energy costs this is requiring an even greater requirement for energy recovery.Don’t be caught short by the next heat or cold wave – either or both may be on your doorstep.

Who keeps your data cool?

Internet cables

Who keeps you cool?
If the internet fails, everything fails – and that’s when everyone loses their cool.

Data centres are the hub of every on-line transaction and communication, but although the consumer expects the best, this service is not automatic or without meticulous background operational control.
Data centres full of sophisticated equipment need management. The two vital ingredients that cannot be compromised are an uninterrupted power supply, and an effective climate control.
Power supply is obviously imperative. The climate control may be a more subtle but it is equally a problematic concern. Fortunately equipment today can withstand a greater variance in operating temperatures, but conversely they emit greater heat output because of their compactness.
Climate control needs the careful consideration of the equipment heat loads and ambient temperature fluctuations, humidity control, the effective air distribution patterns, the introduction of fresh air for maintenance personnel, and backup systems.
The larger data centres are now opting for quality systems that will last the distance. Long gone is the cheap options that are short lived and then let the customer down in the peak load. The risk analysis requires airconditioning systems that are well designed and reliable to avoid outage and downtime.

This often leads to specific requirements that cannot be provided by off-the-shelf products and this is where Mechanical Consultants have the opportunity to work hand in hand with experienced companies to provide the specific solutions to space limitations, additional humidity control requirements and energy recovery.
