Featured Air Conditioning & Ventilation Projects


My Food Bag

My Food Bag wanted a modern, open plan office space as well as a working kitchen for menu design, complete with a photography area and cold store. The existing building was stripped back and the old water-cooled air conditioning systems were removed to allow for the installation of a Daikin VRF multi-system. All services were exposed to give the space an industrial style look.

MediaWorks TV3

MediaWorks wanted to upgrade their existing building to a modern, open plan office layout and state-of-the-art media facility.  Jackson Engineering, Cape Ltd and Stack Interiors were engaged to design a progressive upgrade. The building was stripped of all its mechanical systems and new, exposed services were installed along with a new building management system and main chiller – and all whilst the building & studios remained operational.
