Cundall had responsibility for the building services engineering (mechanical, electrical & vertical transportation, with a sub-consultant for hydraulic services) and environmental design consultancy services, as well as the collation of the successful Green Star environmental rating as the Green Star Accredited Professional (GSAP) for the project.
The Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre (PICAC) is an innovative $9m training facility for plumbers and mechanical contractors, and was opened in April 2009. It provides skills based training courses in the design, installation and maintenance of sustainable plumbing and mechanical systems.
Cundall have provided sustainability advice for Ravenswood School for Girls for a number of years. Work has included carrying out an ESD audit of the existing school providing recommendations on how to improve the efficiency of the school.
