Logistics challenge at council chamber offices
Major mechanical work has been completed at the Town of Cambridge offices in Floreat. Project Air Conditioning was engaged by the council to progressively de-commission the chilled water air conditioning system while at the same time install the new energy saving Toshiba VRF air conditioning equipment to the building. This fully occupied and busy local government facility is the seat of administration for the inner west and some coastal districts of Perth. The work was carried out over several months and a challenging but successful outcome was achieved as the Project Air Conditioning tradespeople worked carefully and diligently amongst the busy council personnel. Daily tool box meetings were carried out with all trade and technical staff fully aware of their responsibilities in their designated areas of work.
I wish to express my appreciation for the installation of the split cassette-air conditioning unit fitted to our Executive Boardroom. Please also extend this to your employees who I have found very professional and carried out all their work to a high standard. I would not hesitate on calling upon you for similar projects.
Evaporative Cooling to Non Specialist Classrooms Value Management Study. Thank you for contributions to the above study. We believe we have achieved an acceptable outcome, our challenge now is finish the project which includes get policy adopted within the Education Department.
FAHCSIA Cairns a regional community service administered by Federal Government
The Australian Government Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FAHCSIA) has recently taken occupation of a number of floors in a prominent multi story building within the Cairns CBD.
Project Air Conditioning was contracted to carry out a full refurbishment, modification and retro fit of the air conditioning at the complex.
Chilled water systems were installed and piped up in many of the work space modules on a number of floors throughout the building.
I have always been very impressed with the manner in which Project Air Conditioning deliver their services. During my association with the company they were very competitive, always innovative, ensuring our clients received value for money air conditioning systems and highly competent with their workmanship.
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.
Group resources combine for Zoo administration air conditioning upgrade
Combining group resources the Queensland arm of the Project Air Conditioning group of companies has completed the upgrade of air conditioning in the administration facility at Perth Zoo. Toshiba VRF equipment specifications, project logistics and safety management plans were submitted to the Zoological Parks Authority. Project Air Conditioning then successfully carried out the works by removing the worn out equipment and replaced it with the latest in air conditioning technology.
Spotless are a national company offering infrastructure and facility management to the private and public sectors. Project Air Conditioning is a registered preferred contractor with Spotless and has demonstrated over an extended period strong organisational competency in its service provision to Spotless. I also acknowledge their commitment to occupational health and safety.
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.
We appreciate your support of our school and thank you and Project Air once again.
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.
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.

Welcome cooling to every public school in WA
Project Air Conditioning has completed its significant contribution to the $52 million WA state air cooling programme. Air Conditioning and ducted evaporative air-cooling systems were installed in 489 schools in two stages across the Perth metropolitan area.
The work programme was regulated by the Department of Finance, Building Management and Works on behalf of the WA Department of Education and Training.
It was universally expressed by school communities that the initiative would create more comfortable conditions for students and staff. A spokesman for the department has signalled the continuation of the programme throughout the state in the years to come.
Keeping the heritage value of the school intact was an important challenge for Project Airconditioning and this was expertly implemented with a minimum of fuss to the school.
They have a very good reputation within the industry & I’m pleased that our company has been able to build an excellent working relationship in order to serve the various markets which Project Air Conditioning are involved in. They are a team of true professionals.
I have found Project Air Conditioning to be a competent contractor in their service delivery. Moreover the rate of our equipment breakdown has reduced significantly.
State of the art comfort in high tech learning hub
Ashdale Secondary College in Darch, Western Australia opened in 2009. The college has state of the art facilities to accommodate the student of the 21st century. Provision of wireless internet in every classroom allows students access via laptops and tablets to extend their connectivity to universal learning environments.
Since the college opened it has undergone a number of staged building programmes to cater for the exponential population growth in Perth's north east corridor.
Project Air Conditioning was the successful tenderer for the $1.5 million energy focused air conditioning project regulated by the WA Department of Finance, Building Management and Works.
The company delivered the project to its government client on time and has completed the liability period with no defects.
