Airmaster regularly chats with various staff members to gain some insight into some of the most rewarding and challenging aspects of their roles and their responsibilities within the company.
Marketing sat down with Western Australia's newly appointed Projects Engineer Shobhit Shekhar. Shobhit started with Airmaster in August of 2020, and in that time has taken on some fantastic projects.
What are your responsibilities at Airmaster?
I am working at Airmaster as a Projects Engineer and am involved in designing, reviewing and estimating HVAC systems for any commercial, industrial or government projects. I perform heat load calculations, system sizing, equipment selections, complete HVAC design, check NCC compliance and suggest technical solutions to optimize performance/results. I also estimate commercial projects, liaise with suppliers & sub-contractors and prepare tender packages for existing and new clients.
How long have you been in the industry and with Airmaster?
I have recently started my journey within this industry and have only been working in HVAC for two years. I have worked in a consulting and contracting firm before I joined Airmaster in August 2020. I was really intrigued to work in this industry and within a company where I get the opportunity to get involved in every facet of a project. Hence, I am fortunate to be a part of Airmaster, as a leading technical solutions provider in HVAC & Building Automation in Australia.
What are the most rewarding and challenging parts of your job?
The most rewarding part of my work is the appreciation and encouragement I receive from my team while I strive to deliver/propose the solutions to the clients. Managing timeframes whilst ensuring due diligence for every detail within the projects is something I find challenging in my role. Working at Airmaster, I find every day at work filled with new learnings and opportunities to explore.
What are you working on now and what is your next big project?
Currently, I am working on a couple of projects for tender submission and D&C (Design & Construct). I am working on Ellenbrook Chiller Upgrade – Engineering Assessment, NAB Mandurah Mechanical Refurbishment, Commonwealth Law Courts Perth – CAPEX proposal, Wesley Quarters L1 & L2 – Heat Load Assessments, L19 140 St Georges Terrace Fit-out while also managing two small fit-out projects. I hope the next big project would be a D&C job and would be eager to get involved and see what the project would entail.
