New $30 million landmark business centre building with 8000m² of A-grade office space, an auction room and a licensed cafe, as well as parking for 155 vehicles. Advertised as the largest office development in Tauranga for nearly 20 years. Innerscape provided mechanical and electrical services conceptual layouts, performance tender documentation and design peer review, full hydraulic services design and tender documentation, and construction observation for base-building services. Innerscape also provided detailed mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic services designs for the majority of the tenancy fit-out areas. HVAC plant included a VRF heat recovery heat pump technology driven fresh air system, VRF tenancy fancoils, and central controllers for each level.
Sharpac Building, Tauranga
The BOP's first NZGBC Green Star 4 star accredited office development. $9.0M, 2,530 m² NLA plus two levels of underground car parking. Innerscape designed the electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic services and provided the building thermal and energy computer simulation models for building system optimization, and for Green Star submission. Key features included in the building system designs were: energy efficient lighting and zone control; enhanced (code +50%) fresh air ventilation rates; heat recovery ventilation; VRF heat recovery heat pump technology using zero ODP refrigerants; CO2 air quality monitoring, and automatic fresh air controls; meeting room occupancy sensors to energize lighting and HVAC systems; rainwater harvesting and non-potable reticulation for WC flush; and a computerized building management system. Project was awarded a rare innovation point by NZGBC Green Star for a new concept compact high performance multi-zone heat recovery ventilation system designed by Innerscape.
Fast Lane Fitness, Hamilton
