Park Beach Medical Centre – Park Beach Plaza, Coffs Harbour NSW 2450

Towards the end of 2009, AAA had been engaged & had completed the installation of a new Daikin VRV system to the new Medical Centre development at Park Beach Plaza.

Consisting mostly of ceiling concealed ducted units to provide cooling & heating to each thermal zone the building should be considered at the top of the list in terms of energy efficiency. Waiting areas that require large amounts of outdoor air to maintain indoor air quality generally require larger capacity fan coil units to cater for the heat and moisture outdoor air adds to a system.

The Park Beach Medical Centre however, is equipped with Energy Recovery Ventilation units that pre-cool & dehumidify this incoming outdoor air. When this occurs the capacity of the fan coil units significantly decreases, which in this case was by about 40%. In energy and dollar terms this can have significant benefits over the life of the system.
