This multi award winning project features a number of EBSA products.

CLIENT: UQ Global Change Institute
SERVICE: G12 series louvres + vertical sunscreens

EBSA designed the operating mechanisms and sun tracking automation of the external vertical sunscreens and was engaged by our client to carry out the installation of the system due to the extremely tight tolerances such a product demanded.

In addition to providing the automation for the Thermal Chimney's, EBSA was engaged by our client to carry out the installation of the entire chimney structure due to the technical difficulties posed by the building design – including the inflating roof!

The G12 series louvres make up nearly the entire facade of the building (behind the vertical screens). EBSA worked directly with G.James Glass and Aluminium to deliver the fully automated louvres which are integrated into a bespoke timber composite mullion design.

Whilst the vertical louvres are designed primarily for sunscreening and operate automatically in accordance with the sun’s position, the G12 louvres work in conjunction with the Thermal Chimney providing an effective natural ventilation and smoke relief system.

A key component to the success of this project is the use of D+H Mechatronic window automation hardware and in particular the fail safe RZN series Smoke Control Panels which interface with both the BMS and Fire.

Unlike residential solutions applied to commercial applications, the use of purpose built commercial solutions from EBSA resolved many of the interface issues typical of other projects of this nature. EBSA were able to interface effectively with the BMS supplied by Johnson Controls and even provided remote monitoring of the sunscreen system.
