Not just design. Our jobs are built to last

HVAC Build

Our HVAC Build and Mechanical Services deliver successful projects to our clients every time.

For over 35 years, we’ve been building specialised HVAC mechanical systems that adapt to the demands of modern construction, with a strong focus on maintainability and energy-efficiency.

We know that a successful project is one that is completed on spec, on time, and on budget — all with no compromises to quality.

We don’t just meet strict operating and regulatory standards. We create a quality atmosphere that is safe, comfortable and engaging. From large scale new construction to the upgrade of major plant and equipment in operational facilities, we understand the critical role that building HVAC systems plays in the operation of a building.

Advanced Builds,
Centralised Controls

We work with companies across Australia on complex and significant projects, providing our clients with an excellent journey throughout the construction phase. By employing in-house craftspeople, we maintain control of the job and give you a single point of contact from start to finish. This ensures transparency throughout the whole process and allows us to share our knowledge with you.

Our HVAC Build & Mechanical Services Capabilities

We are a leading provider of HVAC design services. Our committed design team understands the built environment and have years of experience in delivering new construction, fit-out and refurbishment works across all industry sectors.

We take the time to listen, to provide accurate and unbiased advice, and to deliver a clear and documented design solution to meet your needs.

We strive to deliver the best value for our client’s money. Our team will review all aspects of your project to detect issues early, solve problems, and identify and eliminate unwanted costs. From system design recommendations and alternative equipment selections, to balancing construction costs with long-term operating costs, we aim to satisfy your requirements without compromising on quality, function or performance.

Our team is ahead of the industry when it comes to Building Information Modelling (BIM) and management.

Using BIM for spatial coordination and constructability evaluation allows issues to be addressed before construction begins. This is a clear advantage, saving both time and money, and can help avoid costly reworks.

Our in-house specialists will show you how to reap the benefits of the technology we use. Watch your project come to life with increased labour productivity, better utilisation of resources, improved cost performance and overall profitability.

We employ the best in the business. Our project managers and supervisors bring years of experience to the job and a firm commitment to getting things done. Our project managers head the construction effort and work hard to exceed your expectations. They are dedicated to being a trusted partner, providing solid direction and implementing proven management and control processes to deliver your project to the highest standard.

All the elements of your project are kept consistent by working with a tight-knit circle of partners we have built trusting relationships with. All the moving parts will always be where you can see them, and you can check in at any time through a single point of contact.

We are highly skilled in the use of prefabrication and modular fabrication technology and can offer you a complete pre-engineered solution from concept development through to completion.

We integrate prefabrication design to streamline quality, consistency and delivery of multiple services within buildings, all of which benefit safety outcomes, timeliness of the project and labour costs.

We deliver a complete range of mechanical pipework services with a strong focus on quality, safety and compliance. Our capabilities include chilled and heating pipe systems, steam and compressed air, artesian water, and medical and laboratory gases.

Our highly experienced, in-house tradespeople are experts when it comes to mechanical piping, giving you the best possible outcome and solution for all your pipework needs.

To guarantee your project is delivered to the highest standards for quality and workmanship, we directly employ and train the specialist tradespeople needed for all stages of construction.

This ensures we are well prepared for your project, capable of adapting and, if needed, can find solutions to construction issues as we maintain control of the job.

The importance of commissioning and balancing services cannot be overstated. It ensures your system is performing to its full potential and meeting both owner and occupant needs. We are NEBB certified and proactive in the use of building analytics. Whether it’s verifying your new system is operating as designed, re-balancing after lay-out changes, or testing the performance of your current equipment – we have the expertise to enhance the performance and longevity of your mechanical systems.

Build & Mechanical Services Experience

The Multiuser Terminal Redevelopment was a major redevelopment of the terminal precinct at Canberra Airport.

The works, undertaken in and around the existing and operational terminal, included a new 50,000m² terminal, two 38,000m² car parks with office accommodation on the top levels, a central elevated road, road network infrastructure and upgrading and extension to aprons and taxiways to service the aircraft.

Partnering with Hindmarsh Construction, Benmax delivered the HVAC mechanical services for the award-winning $203 million purpose-built Research School of Physics and Engineering (RSPhys) at the Australian National University, Canberra. 

RSPhys is Australia’s leading institution for physics research and its applications, and the ultra-modern research and education facility meets high specification standards for cleanliness, vibration control and electromagnetic radiation control.

Working in partnership with Amalgamated Property Group and Construction Control, Benmax delivered the HVAC mechanical services for the $196 million Civic Quarter Tower 2 project located in Canberra’s CBD.

Adjacent to the CQ1 building, the award-winning facility offers 35,000 sqm in nett lettable space (NLA) across 11 levels of A grade commercial office accommodation. It encompasses state-of-the-art technology and the highest in environmental credentials including a NABERS energy rating target in excess of 5 stars, Green Star and Wellness initiatives.
