Helical Vari-Swirl Diffuser at Workspace365

2023 – Workspace 365, Greenhouse, QLD, Australia

Located in the 6-star Green Star and 5.5-star NABERS rated Greenhouse in Brisbane’s West End, Workspace 365 offers private workspaces, coworking, meeting rooms and shared offices, together with virtual office services.

Conditioned, dedicated outdoor air (DOA) is supplied via motorised, variable geometry SMARTEMP Helical Vari-Smart™ Diffusers, type HSC-VS equipped with onboard room temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide sensors. Associated Vari-Smart™ controls achieve superior energy savings and enhanced indoor air quality by motorising integrated diffuser VAV dampers, targeting fresh air supply to match shifting thermal and occupant diversity. Fresh air is only delivered where it is actually required.

2022 – Sydney Modern Museum, NSW, Australia

The Sydney Modern Project at the Art Gallery of New South Wales is an astonishing building, multi-leveled, much of it featuring walls of soaring glass, with views over Sydney Harbour and exhibition spaces for both large-scale and intimate works of art. Designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of Tokyo-based firm SANAA, the AU$344 million building opened on December 3, 2022. It’s easily the most significant cultural development in the city since the opening of the Sydney Opera House half a century ago.

The following SMARTEMP air diffusion products have been supplied:

2022 – AIRAH Product of the Year – Winner

The Smartair Team is thrilled and honoured to accept this year’s AIRAH award for Product of the Year for our SMARTEMP Helical Vari-Swirl™ Diffuser, type HSC-VS

This low profile electronic VAV diffuser has patent-pending cyclone swirl damper technology, integrated IEQ, and both supply temperature- and static pressure-independent VAV damper control. Sensors for supply pressure, supply and room temperature, PIR (occupancy) and IAQ (CO2+RH or VOC), as well as a Bluetooth enabled controller, are integrated in the diffuser hub. The diffuser operation may be stand-alone or BMS-networked. Each diffuser includes patent-pending intelligent Vari-Smart Controls™ that may be comms connected to form a distributed controls network that optimises AHU performance via supply temperature, pressure, fan and economiser optimisation sequences.

2022 – PHIVE, 5 Parramatta Square, NSW, Australia

PHIVE, Parramatta’s new $136 million community and civic building, is to become a cultural hub in the heart of Parramatta’s CBD. It is also set to be Australia’s most sustainable government building.

As part of its cutting-edge design, PHIVE boasts a smart mixed-mode ventilation system. This automatically opens louvres to fill the building with fresh air as needed, and – depending on weather conditions – provides energy efficient mechanical cooling, heating and ventilation via motorised, variable geometry SMARTEMP Helical Vari-Swirl™ Diffusers, type HSC-VS and associated Vari-Smart™ controls for individual thermostatic VAV operation per diffuser. Thermal comfort is optimised as thermal loads shift, and both supply temperature and fan speed of the VRV AHUs are continually optimised for energy savings.

Other SMARTEMP products at PHIVE include:
