Rough Edges has received a major upgrade in the form of new air conditioning, thanks to Grosvenor Engineering Group and partners.  The project included decommissioning the old system, which had not worked for a number of years, installing a new slab to support the condenser unit outside and then putting it all together.

The new system will take the chill of the current winter air for people used to spending much of their lives outside.  In the summer it will be particularly appreciated by the volunteers, who really feel the heat in our kitchen!

All of this has been possible because of the contributions by a number of companies, so thanks to:

  •          Grosvenor Engineering Group
  •          Daikin Australia & New Zealand
  •          Nova Engineering
  •          Greenstar Building Automation Citywide
  •          National Projects & Maintenance
