Project Case Study

Wellington Square, Launceston

The Drysdale North Campus in Launceston forms an integral part of the Tasmanian Polytechnic's hospitality and tourism program. As part of a recent upgrade and refurbishment project, Degree C was awarded a large package of work encompassing the installation of in-floor heating and ventilation in the restaurants and food preparation areas.

The industrial-scale kitchen was equipped with stainless steel extraction hoods capable of removing large volumes of stale air that is immediately replaced with fresh air via two large air handling units concealed in the roof. The air handling units draw in fresh air from outside the building, passing it through a water coil heat transfer system before reintroducing it to the kitchen below at a comfortable 18˚C.

The installation of hydronic in-floor heating powered by natural gas boilers ensures that the Drysdale restaurants and training rooms maintain a comfortable temperature for patrons and students alike. The combined thermally and energy efficient ventilation and heating systems are controlled by an integrated control system.

Project Case Study

Windermere and Austins Ferry Primary Schools

This twin campus project is typical of the work delivered to the education sector where energy efficient solutions are essential to offset long-term running costs. Following the construction of new buildings at both Austins Ferry and Windermere Primary Schools, the Degree C Hobart Mechanical Services team was contracted to install heating, cooling and ventilation services to multiple buildings on each of the two campuses.

Classrooms, staff rooms and libraries were equipped with state-of-the-art Daikin VRV systems ideally suited to large, open plan spaces. Wall-mounted Daikin multi-split air conditioning systems were installed in the Student Services buildings. Powerful ceiling cassette units were fitted to teaching spaces within the multi-purpose halls.

By tailoring a specific solution to each of the distinct learning spaces, Degree C has delivered an energy efficient system, fully integrated with each school's Building Management System.
