Roebourne Children’s and Family Centre

This $4.2M facility was completed in December 2013 in the heart of Roebourne and includes a 375m2 child care centre and 200m2 family centre. All normally occupied areas were air conditioned using multiple split wall hung and ceiling cassette type units. A ducted outside air processing unit was provided in each building to deliver the code requirement for outside ventilation air and to pressurise the rooms to assist in reducing the occurrence of condensation and mould.

As the facility is located in a cyclonic region, all externally mounted mechanical equipment was secured to concrete plinths using cyclone tie down straps and motorised cyclonic dampers were provided behind outside air and exhaust louvres. External condenser coils were treated with a marine grade corrosion protection to extend unit life.
