Contractor: Climatech NSW

Parents are rushing to enroll their children in a revolutionary new state school that will scrap year levels, school bells and the word ‘classroom’.
Lindfield Learning Village won’t be the kind of school most adults recognise. Teaching will happen around ‘waterholes’ or ‘campfires’. Students will take responsibility for their own learning. And high schoolers will mentor kindy kids.
The new, public kindergarten to year 12 school on the old University of Technology site at Ku-ring-gai will open in term one next year and take the first 350 students of what will eventually be a cohort of 2000.
Utilising an old building and introducing a new educational concept, means every aspect can challenge the norm.
Armcor worked along with Climatech to provide 10 packaged air-conditioning ERV units to meet the tight time frame required for installation before the end of 2018. Each unit has a full economy system to make the most efficient use of natural cooling whenever possible.
With units ranging from 46kW to 100kW cooling capacity, the school is now equipped for the hot summer months providing an economical solution to the fresh air needs of a positive education environment.
