Retire in comfort at Bunbury or Yanchep
Project Air Conditioning has recently completed the air conditioning at two of the Bethanie Group's retirement villages at Eaton near Bunbury, in WA's south west region as well as Yanchep, 60 kilometres north of Perth. Project Air Conditioning carried out a full suite of services for Bethanie which included design and documentation along with the supply and installation of the air conditioning and associated mechanical ventilation. Toshiba VRF systems have been installed at both sites. Project Air Conditioning also supplied and installed a state of the art building energy management system. The system is fully integrated and is operated remotely from the Bethanie headquarters in Perth.
Ellenbrook Retirement Village (Stage 7) Thank you for your contribution in making this project a success.
The company’s engineering capabilities of selecting appropriate equipment and designing ducted systems along with their competency to install and commission equipment has fully satisfied myself and Mirvac.
They are always on time which is invaluable to a Builder. Project Air Conditioning's commitment to customer service is genuine and professional. I am delighted to recommend Project air Conditioning to anyone who requires a great team of people to get an air conditioning job done on time, on budget and of the highest standard.
Surf's up at Freo
Mirvac has completed the $4 million Fremantle Surf Lifesaving Club. Mirvac chose Project Air Conditioning to design and install the mechanical services for this important Indian Ocean recreation facility.
To suit the various zones of the building a mixed selection of Toshiba indoor air handling units were connfigured to a bank of VRF outdoor condensers.
The air conditioning installed is also respite for members who wish to escape the blustery effects of the famous Fremantle Doctor.
The Church of Latter Day Saints leadership group has engaged the services of Project Air Conditioning a number of times over the years when there is a requirement to supply and install air conditioning to its numerous churches. The relationship developed between the Church and Project air Conditioning has seen congregations benefit from air conditioning from as far away as Karratha and Port Hedland in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
The most recent Latter Day Saints church building to have air conditioning installed was at Rockingham, a seaside holiday suburb south of Perth. A Toshiba VRF system was installed to meet the summer and winter temperature demands of the congregation.
Their onsite management and installation staffs in particular have impressed me with their caring attitude and response to the schools operational requirements while always delivering the installation to a high standard with minimal defects or ongoing issues upon completion. I have no hesitation in referring Project Air Conditioning to other clients and in fact have done so on a number of occasions following my dealings with them in the DET State Air Cooling projects.
In consideration of difficulties faced in the installation, such as restricted access to work spaces, areas heavily congested with existing services and requirements for substantial builder’s works, Project Air’s efforts are commendable.
Thanks to management and staff at Project Air Conditioning for their valuable contribution and the unprecedented access the company gave the Chinese delegation from the World Bank.
Brenton Siviour of international accounting firm McKessar Tieleman has been working with the World Bank to help small businesses in China to improve their marketing, financial and management systems and, following from that, their profits. The aim is to alleviate poverty by building small to medium business enterprises (SME). This will create employment, which leads to the creation of wealth.
The recent admission of China to the World Trade Organisation has exposed Chinese businesses to increased competition. Those businesses now say we need to know about world's best practice." Australia leads the world in business and entrepreneurial skills, so it was no surprise when the bank came to look for expertise. Mr Siviour began consulting with small businesses to improve their efficiency in 1996 with his own company, Siviour Corporate. He has continued this work for McKessar Tieleman following the merger of the companies in February 2000.
In June 2001, the World Bank invited McKessar Tieleman to analyse the needs of businesses in Sichuan Province, China. This led to Mr Siviour becoming involved in a pilot project, starting in April 2002, to help five companies develop their systems to world standards.
Consultants would be trained by McKessar Tieleman to go to Chinese companies and pass on the knowledge they had gained. This is both cost effective and has the added benefit that, while few of the Chinese business people needing help have any knowledge of English, the trainee consultants are fluent English speakers.
Project Air Conditioning was invited to be a case study for the trainee consultants on the basis of Mr Siviour's prior knowledge of the company. Mr Siviour explains: "Project Air Conditioning has perfected its customer service strategy. "Not only are they skilled in the technical aspects of air conditioning design and Installation but the way in which they perform their service.
"In my experience of studying and working with SME's in Australia and abroad, Project Air Conditioning's business processes and systems is an exemplary model of the methods required of organisations to effectively serve markets and sustain employment.

Also I wanted to let you know all 3 of the gents that did the work were extremely pleasant and professional. Please pass on my thanks to them. Thanks again Paul.
Youth benefiting from cooperative arrangement
The cooperative relationship that exists between Project Air Conditioning and Mercy College has been an organic one for more than a decade. The majority of air conditioning retrofits to existing and newly constructed buildings along with supporting the school with a routine maintenance programme for the air conditioning equipment has been carried out by Project Air Conditioning.
The school has also utilised Project Air Conditioning in a training capacity for students on work experience. Students who express a desire to enter the trades sector will join Project Air Conditioning for on the job training to gain some pre vocational experience. In return Project Air Conditioning apprentices also get on the job training during their installation works and maintenance visits.
