Karen Rolton Oval

SACA’s high-tech HVAC

A new three-storey sports hub to support grassroots and women’s cricket has been built as part of a multi-million-dollar redevelopment of the South Australian Cricket Association’s (SACA) Park 25 in Adelaide.

Designed by Cox Architects and constructed by Kennett Builders, the officially named Karen Rolton Oval has dramatically reduced the footprint of previous buildings while simultaneously delivering much-improved amenities.

When it comes to HVAC, the facility includes a high-efficiency system installed and commissioned by local mechanical services contractor Integrated Air Services (IAS).

“The project had a mix of products from Fantech to serve a number of different applications,” says Matt Longhurst from IAS.

This includes exhaust systems for the carpark, chemical storage, bathroom, kitchen and dishwasher. Longhurst says selecting the correct fan for the chemical store area was a big challenge, which IAS overcame by consulting with all parties on the design team.

“We used a number of PowerLine Series fans for this project to meet the specification,” says Longhurst, “and Vacon variable- speed drives (VSDs), supplied by Fantech, for commissioning and to achieve the controls functionality.”

Fantech supplied attenuators and supply-air fans. It also supported IAS during the commissioning process and assisted with the set-up of the VSDs to achieve the specified air quantities.
