Commercial Office Building, Crown Street Wollongong
“Langs Corner” is a redevelopment of an 11-story commercial office building in Wollongong. Boasting views over Crown Street Mall to the west and Wollongong Beach to the East. The Pupovac Construction redevelopment will include ten floors of A Grade office space, retail shopping, roof top plant room. There will also be ample parking with the inclusion of a three level basement car park.
Climax has designed the mechanical services for the commercial office building. Keeping energy efficiency at the forefront, the design includes an integrated building and energy management system. The installation includes two Australian made 650kW variable speed magnetic bearing water cooled SMARDT Chillers. These will serve eight central Air Handling units, feeding a network of over 140 Variable Air Volume (VAV) systems.
In addition to the chiller systems, packaged DX systems will serve the ground floor foyer and common areas. Meanwhile, dedicated exhaust systems have been provided for the multiple tenancies and Car Park. Fresh air and exhaust ventilation systems will be fitted for the three levels of Basement Car Park using ducted axial and supplementary Jet fans.
The active smoke control system includes sandwich pressure control on the commercial tenancy floors, complete with smoke exhaust fans, and four stair pressurisation systems.
The design and construct project is expected to be completed in May 2022.
