We are extremely excited that construction has commenced in earnest on the newest building on the Curtin Campus.

One of the key mechanical engineering challenges of the project was managing the high ventilation rates required to support the building occupancy, particularly given the a key energy focus of the Project. In order to limit the energy penalty on the building, SGK designed a sensible heat recovery system, with run around coils in the outside air and relief air paths. This allows energy that would otherwise be wasted, to be recovered and used to pre-cool the ventilation air. We also provided economy cycle bypass ducts to allow the heat recovery coils to be bypassed when in economy cycle, which reduces fan power.
