Our services

We were appointed as the mechanical engineers for the refurbishment of the HVAC installation. We were able to solve any problems that occurred on-site as well as monitor the site. Extensive on-site investigations had to be done to co-ordinate services through existing areas. Due to the extremely tight program, on site attendance, problem solving and extensive co-ordination on drawings and on site formed part of our responsibilities.

Gold Reef City is a fully operational casino and the HVAC system had to remain operational through the construction/refurbishment process.
