Each Fredon division and business unit employs specialists in their respective field, who draw on each other’s expertise to provide “best of breed” integrated solutions to our clients. Engineering integrates with installation, upgrade services direct to building owners and maintenance to provide value, solve problems and obtain optimum quality, safety and environmental outcomes.
Aldi Distribution Centre, Brendale
An example of this is the award winning Aldi warehouse project at Brendale in Queensland. Based on Fredon’s advice, electrical supply lines were split and relocated from the originally specified position to greatly reduce the cost of installation. Additionally, computer calculated dimming controls on the lighting systems were developed during installation which were critical to the project achieving a 4 star NABERS rating. This aspect of the project impressed Aldi sufficiently that the system is being rolled out to other similar facilities around Australia. Fredon offers a consistent level of project excellence which comes though long experience, a stable workforce and a commitment to integration.
48 Martin Place, Sydney
At 48 Martin Place in Sydney, Fredon’s mechanical division worked closely with architects and builders to fit modern, environmentally efficient air conditioning plant into a heritage building, with a glass roof—two factors that place considerable constraints on installation of HVAC plant. The building went on to win several awards for its environmental and heritage credentials. Fredon’s HVAC Maintenance branch have the ongoing contract for the building, ensuring that the high standard set during installation is maintained over time.
Our integrated approach to service and maintenance means that we have considerable experience ensuring installations will be serviceable, and factoring in the ongoing maintenance and energy costs of a building life cycle during installation. In 2016, Lendlease contracted all 4 divisions of Fredon, Electrical, HVAC, Security and Technology to provide integrated services for its own headquarters at Barangaroo in Sydney.
