The Challenges

Servicing the fast-growing Logan region in Brisbane’s south-east, Vicinity Centre’s Grand Plaza Shopping Centre in Brown’s Plains offers customers over 150 specialty stores as well as major retailers in Kmart, Target, Big W, Woolworths, Coles and an Event cinema complex.

The internal conditions within the Grand Plaza shopping centre are maintained by a highly efficient HVAC system incorporating one low-load PowerPax air-cooled chiller and two full range variable speed centrifugal chillers.

Additionally, the HVAC plant features variable speed chilled water pumps and variable speed cooling tower fans.

And according to Airmaster’s National Products Manager, John Wessel, this infrastructure provides the backbone for a highly efficient plant.
