Reducing environmental impact and energy consumption in schools
In 2018, Assisi Catholic College made the decision to air condition the entire campus.
With climate change and rising energy costs at front of mind, the college was seeking the highest efficiency options that would future proof the school’s infrastructure.
Delivering highest efficiency solutions
Calibre Built Environment was engaged by Brisbane Catholic Education and Assisi Catholic College to undertake a complete review of mechanical and electrical infrastructure at the school with a focus on delivery of the highest efficiency solutions to reduce consumption, economic impact and environmental damage.
Due to existing infrastructure, it was determined that geothermal air conditioning be used to air condition the refurbished administration offices and school library. At the completion of these works, an additional 13 classrooms would benefit from the installation of geothermal air conditioning.
