Haden Wins $14m Sydney CBD Mechanical Contract


Haden has been awarded a $14 million contract to provide heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems for a 32-storey office and retail tower in Sydney’s CBD.

The development at 420 George Street is owned by Fortius Funds Management and the Lend Lease managed Australian Prime Property Fund, developed by Lend Lease Retail and project managed, designed and constructed by Bovis Lend Lease. It includes two levels of basement car parking, four levels of retail and twenty-eight levels of commercial office space. It is being constructed on the site previously known as MidCity Centre.

Haden’s contract covers the HVAC component for the entire project, including the supply, delivery and commissioning of mechanical services to the commercial office, retail, car park and utilities/service areas.

The project is aiming to achieve a high standard of environmental rating, demonstrating a commitment to minimising environmental impacts and reducing greenhouse emissions in the ongoing operation of the building.

Haden has recently completed other HVAC works at highly-rated Green Star and NABERS Energy projects, including the new Australian Taxation Office building in Canberra and the Darling Park 3 office building in Sydney.

Commenting on the 420 George Street project, David Rafter, Chief Executive of Norfolk’s Mechanical division, said: “This project aligns perfectly with our strategy to offer our customers sustainable solutions, through initiatives like using chilled beams on the perimeter, swirl diffusers and low temperature air.

“Haden’s involvement in the 420 George Street project extends the company’s position as the leading provider of HVAC and refrigeration maintenance services in Australia,” said Mr Rafter.

The expected completion date for the project is 2010 and Haden’s role is effective immediately.
