Melbourne Grand is the latest apartment tower, a stunning 58-storey tower rising above the CBD to be completed mid 2020. Giving the ability to live in Melbourne’s prestigious Legal Precinct and take advantage of the city’s best employment, study, transport and lifestyle opportunities.

Corridor ventilation in apartment buildings is always a design challenge. Requiring large volumes of fresh air and yet providing this economically requires careful planning to achieve the desired result and comply with the building codes.

With the introduction of Indirect Evaporative Cooling there is now another dimension to the solutions available.
Working collaboratively with the project consultants, Armcor developed an innovative approach with the most economical use of INDEC cooling as Stage 1 cooling, high efficiency gas boilers as stage 1 heating and back up refrigeration for the extreme conditions when stage 2 cooling is required.

All this packaged together in a rooftop unit answered many problems for the consultants and contractors.
