Air-conditioning is estimated to account for up to 60% of the energy consumption within a building. With global weather patterns changing, buildings must be able to respond effectively and efficiently to accommodate daily weather, seasonal changes, use and operational patterns, while still maintaining desired conditions.
Ventilation of a building is part of health and safety and is mandated by the National Construction Code and Australian Standards (AS1668.1 and 2). Indoor air quality has also been recognized as an important factor in the satisfaction, health and productivity of occupants. TWO MS engineers have knowledge and experience across a wide variety of ventilation and conditioned air solutions to allow you to achieve compliance with National, State and Local standards and codes to deliver optimal energy efficiency.
Our qualified, certified and accredited Mechanical Services Engineers have a depth and breadth of experience across projects including HVAC and ventilation systems powered by gas, chilled water, electrical and hybrid systems such as the utilisation of the natural stack effect for ventilation and even the incorporation of an Arabic wind tower to divert cooling breezes within a building. In addition to specialist ventilation for carparks, jet fan solutions, radiant heating, heat recovery systems, extraction systems and general ventilation for kitchens, toilets and garbage rooms.
Changes to Essential Fire Safety Practitioner definitions (NSW, 2020), has brought increasing focus on the requirements of the mechanical ventilation system and the involvement of Chartered and Accredited consulting personal throughout the design and construction process. TWO MS offers staff members who are accredited certifiers in mechanical services (C9). Our experience includes design requirements for smoke zone control systems, smoke hazard management, stair pressurization, pressurised safe rooms for the very young, elderley or infirm, fire control rooms and essential services rooms.
Committed to good engineering standards we consider cost and life cycle of recommended equipment, energy consumption, heat loads analysis and occupant comfort, our senior engineers select all equipment and review drafted designs before submission.
