Leading provider of underfloor air conditioning systems, AET Flexible Space, has won their first order from Australia, for the supply of their leading underfloor air conditioning equipment for the new build development of the Warilla Library located in the Wollongong area of New South Wales, Australia.
The new build library with upgraded facilities was proposed as part of the Shellharbour Council Libraries & Museum Strategy 2014. The existing facility was constructed in 1968, but is inappropriately located and not purpose built as a library, and without co-located community services, deemed necessary for a modern facility. AET received this first Australian order via their local agent, Air Solutions International and the $5.6 million project is already under construction.
The system specified for the Warilla Library is a CAM-V system is split into four zones. Each zone is served by a single CAM-V downflow unit, supplying the conditioned air into the plenum beneath the raised access floor, which also serves as the ventilation zone for UfAC systems without the need for additional ductwork. The conditioned air is introduced into the workspace using around 15 TU4 Fantiles per zone and the spent air is received back at high level before returning to the CAM for reconditioning. Fantiles recess into the underfloor void and the whole system is networked together and can be controlled using the Flexmatic Touch display unit connected to the CAM.
This latest project win adds to the growing list of library and learning centre projects that have specified underfloor services as the best solution for flexible and comfortable working environments. The modern 900 m2 facility including the technology hub, dedicated meeting rooms and study areas is due to be completed and ready for use by the end of 2019.
