A central chiller mechanical plant was coordinated at roof level and coordinated closely with the structural & acoustic engineers on the project team. The size of chillers and noise breakout was managed via acoustic treatments, screening and concrete slab separation between plant and hotel levels.
Given the large area of full height glazing along ground level feature areas (function lobby, conference rooms, cafe, restaurant, reception) the National Construction Codes (NCCs) Energy Efficiency requirements (Section J) for glazing performance and shading would have forced extremely dark glass. The JV3 model allows us to off-set energy credits taking the building as a whole thus allowing for a consistent, practical glass specification for the builder for the entire development.

Froster Engineering has successfully delivered the mechanical services for our recent 10,000m2 office building in Joondalup. Jeff worked enthusiastically and collaboratively with our design team to help deliver the first 5 Star Green Star office building in Joondalup. Jeff’s attention to detail, the client brief and onsite construction supervision has been appreciated and ensured we have been delivered a quality commercial development for the long term. I look forward to the ongoing relationship and future project opportunities.
