Working with architects

Window Control Systems® has been cooperating with some of the biggest, most influential and most innovative architectural offices in New Zealand, and on some landmark projects.

Our engagement involves providing conceptual solutions, feasibility study of the most cost-effective solutions that will suit project requirements.

Mechanical consultants

Natural Ventilation and Smoke Ventilation solutions are closely linked with Electrical works and Mechanical services. We work closely with Mechanical consultants and we provide the required technical expertise as well as technical documentation for our systems and their componentry.

Technical support and documentation

Based on a few decades of industry experience, we have vast knowledge of our products. Also, we have well documented processes as well as a detailed library of technical documentation.

Among the documents that we provide are:

  • Datasheets
  • Installation instructions
  • Wiring diagrams
  • As-built drawings
  • Producer statements
  • Manuals

Technical presentations

As an important professional development tool, many architectural practices organize technical presentations. We have visited more than a dozen architectural offices to present Natural ventilation concepts, with invariably very positive feedback. Please contact us and we will be happy to visit you.

Sustainable solutions

Natural ventilation, as a passive ventilation solution, is ideal for New Zealand climate, with mild winters and hot summers. Compared with Mechanical systems that fulfil the same task of providing fresh air, Natural ventilation is superior in terms of cost-effectiveness and environmental benefits.
