Fresh thinking – advanced HVAC for Massey University Albany


In the competitive world of higher education, a facility has to offer the best of everything – from teaching, to amenities, to a physical environment that is a pleasure to attend each day. An important part of this is the HVAC system delivering clean, fresh air throughout, helping staff and students function at their optimum.

Air Mark Services specialises in the design, installation and maintenance of sophisticated commercial and industrial HVAC solutions, says company director Mark Jacobs.

"Massey Albany is a successful and growing academic campus reliant on its appeal to both local and international students," says Jacobs. "Advanced air conditioning, with its direct effect on student comfort and alertness, naturally plays a vital role and Air Mark Services has been heavily involved in achieving a suitable environment."

The HVAC system put together and installed for the university is a mix of variable refrigerant flow (VRF) air conditioning and mechanically operated natural ventilation, providing the flexibility, comfort and energy efficiency required. The HVAC is controlled by an advanced building management system (BMS) which also provides remote access and control, and is linked to energy metering, hydraulics, electrical and security systems.

Jacobs says the system design was simple yet functional, resulting in excellent energy solutions.


"Co-ordination between trades was essential in achieving this highly successful outcome."

Air Mark Services has worked on many large projects including, hotels, universities, multi-unit apartments, offices, warehouses and restaurants.
