The ANU Physics Building project was a groundbreaking endeavour, involving the construction of a purpose-built research laboratory building at the ANU, including one of Australia’s largest cleanroom facilities. The project involved various technically complex elements, including mechanical services to maintain a cascading positive pressure regime, the use of specialized tubing for gas management, and the installation of a sophisticated HVAC system.
Our primary responsibility was to provide high-quality pumps to the mechanical contractor, Benmax, who was tasked with implementing the complex HVAC system. Our carefully selected pumps were essential for the efficient and cost-effective operation of this critical component of the facility.
Working closely with Benmax, we were able to help them deliver the critical HVAC system including the demanding testing processes that was needed for the complex commissioning phase. Benmax’s expertise in laboratory projects in Australia was invaluable, and together, we ensured that our pumps seamlessly integrated into the HVAC system. This collaboration highlighted the importance of quality and expertise in delivering complex projects.
The $200 million ANU Physics Building project was a purpose-built facility and earned significant industry recognition, it was awarded the Project of the Year and recognized for its technical difficulty and innovation at the 2022 ACT Master Builders Awards. These accolades reflect the exceptional quality and complexity of the project, and we were honoured to work with Benmax to deliver the critical HVAC system. Completed in 2022, this project highlights our commitment to delivering innovative and high-quality solutions in demanding environments.
