In partnership with The Construction Company, NWE Consulting Engineers, and Coldfact Projects, the project for the Helderberg Nature Reserve included the installation of an air-conditioning system in the new Information Centre. The AC was installed with VRV Heat Recovery and a mix of ducted and cassette units, along with four VAM units.

In line with the Reserve’s mission to be environmentally efficient, the walls of the Information Centre were built with mud and tyres, and the inner walls with mud and recycled 2Litre plastic bottles. All lighting power is drawn via solar panels, and all the switches are triggered with motion sensors, so there is no energy wastage.
