The annual AIRAH Awards recognise and celebrate Australia’s outstanding HVAC&R projects and leaders.
Airmaster CEO, Noel Courtney said, “To be recognised as a multiple finalist is testament to the work of our staff who continually drive and deliver innovation to our customers”.
Excellence in Innovation: Tuggeranong Office Park – Building Services Network Project
Airmaster developed a bespoke Building Services Network (BSN) for Tuggeranong Office Park in Canberra. The objective of a BSN is to streamline operations and minimise overhead duplications. The BSN uses the common network platform (Ethernet TCP/IP) shared by a majority of technologies used in the operation of the building.
The primary objective of the project was to provide commonality for data transfer between all engineering systems on-site and to reduce the amount of cabled infrastructure and hardware across the building. The delivery of the project resulted in a stable, failsafe and resilient infrastructure for the day-to-day running of the building that provides a cost-effective solution for the roll out of site wide services, now and into the future.
Excellence in Innovation: Night Audit Procedure – John Gorton Building
The John Gorton Building is a heritage-listed building and is one of Canberra’s most historic public service office buildings.
Airmaster developed and delivered a night audit procedure for the purposes of identifying; after-hours plant operation abnormalities, OH&S issues, BMS issues, and Energy saving opportunities/initiatives. Airmaster is also investigating the possibilities implementing a ‘Total Overview’ Building Management and Analytics System.
The audit resulted in opportunities for improvement that were presented to the client in a report, and covered: Building Management System, Lighting, Main Mechanical Plant, Energy Management and OH&S Hazards.
Future Leader: Jason Harrison – Airmaster NSW State Manager
Jason is Airmaster’s NSW State Manager, overseeing operations for the entire State of New South Wales. He also works at a strategic level in the ongoing development of new innovations and initiatives for the company as a whole.
