Macquarie University W19 Seawater Facility
The project comprised of the provisions for a new Seawater Laboratory Facility located adjacent to the existing Freshwater Facility. This facility houses various seawater experiments and includes a processing Lab, MEG Labs, Seawater Facility and Temperature Controlled rooms.
CJP has provided both concept and detail design for the mechanical services. The indoor environment is of a corrosive nature due to its salt content and plant corrosion was an issue in the previous facility. To address this, our design approach was to utilise corrosion resistant materials and a single pass air conditioning system with heat recovery similar to that used in indoor pool environments.
