Redevelopment of Sunshine Plaza Shopping Centre Air-Conditioning Plant:
Located within 2km the beach and spans over Cornmeal Creek in Maroochydore, Sunshine Coast.
Existing built area of 42,700m².
Riverfront dining and retail.
Upgrade of the existing air conditioning system including conversion in part from air cooled to fully centralised water cooled chilled water generating plant.
Central chilled water generating plant cooling capacity 9,000kWr.
SPECIAL ENGINEERING FEATURES
A central chilled water system serving the refurbished, existing shopping centre employing variable speed water cooled chillers operating in a series counter flow arrangement for exceptional energy efficiency and plant longevity.
New air handling units incorporating the latest in tropic proofing provisions to maximise longevity with the highly corrosive beach environment.
Utilised 3D scanning technology in order to coordinate and fit the new chilled water plant within the existing plantroom while doubling the chilled water capacity available.
Utilised 3D scanning technology to maintain existing Air Handling Unit plantrooms while reusing existing ductwork.
Air-conditioned chiller plantroom and electrical switchroom to maximise equipment efficiency and minimise adverse effects from the external coastal environment.
Significantly reduced AC plant electrical consumption by 50% compared to the previous air conditioning system.
3D scanning technology ensured a complex air conditioning system upgrade within an existing building structure with no cost variations due to spatial conflicts.
