World-class centre chooses Dunnair
Dunnair Australia has been selected as the supplier of air-conditioning equipment for the Billion-dollar Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre project.
This exciting new world-class cancer care facility, jointly funded by the Victorian and Federal governments, began construction in 2011 and is due for
completion in late 2015.
After working closely with Lehr (LCI) Consulting in the design phase, Dunnair will supply 26 WPR Water Cooled Horizontal & Vertical Heat Pump Type Units to meet their specific requirements.
“Dunnair is extremely proud to be selected for this important and prestigious project,” said Dunnair Managing Director Ernie Ugazio. “Our large water-cooled units are becoming the preferred choice for many consulting engineers as we can quickly manufacture to their exact specifications.”
The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre is being built on the site of the former Royal Dental Hospital, across from The Royal Melbourne Hospital in Grattan Street, Carlton, and will incorporate the relocated Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. Buildings on both sides of Grattan Street will be linked by covered bridges, allowing patients, visitors and staff to move easily between the two facilities.
The VCCC will provide a world-class model of care for cancer patients by combining best practice from the Royal Melbourne, the “Peter Mac” and The Royal Women’s Hospital. The 42-bed Intensive Care Unit will double the capacity of the current Royal Melbourne ICU.
Mr Ugazio went on to say that being awarded contracts of this kind showed that Dunnair Australia is continuing to re-establish itself as a major air conditioning supplier to the HVAC industry in Victoria. “We believe that the combination of quality, competitive pricing and efficient bespoke engineering is proving to be a winning combination.”
