Delamere Air Weapons Range is a bombing range operated by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), located in the Northern Territory 120km south of Katherine and RAAF Base Tindal. The range covers over half a million acres and is undoubtedly one of Australia’s premier weapons ranges.

VAE were engaged by Lend Lease to provide a stand-alone air conditioning system to the range operations centre, central facilities, visitor and accommodation facilities, maintenance buildings and various other buildings including ordnance stores.

The mechanical plant included packaged air conditioning units and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) split systems, including advanced graphics to assist in remote diagnosis.
