A brief company history of Equilibrium AirConditioning

May 23rd, 2018 by

4.3 SERVICE

In 1968, the original form of Equilibrium AirConditioning was established by Paul Eastaway. Over the years, the company steadily expanded to include a service division to support the commercial side of the business. Eventually, the commercial and industrial section outgrew the domestic demand.

There were three distinct divisions by 1982, with design and construct for commercials systems being the predominate area. By 1999, Equilibrium was restructured to be able to service substantially larger commercial projects.

From inception to modern times, our company has been entrusted with countless high profile commercial, industrial and health related developments in New South Wales. Some of them have included; Stocklands Merrylands, Hunters Hill Private Hospital Sydney Adventist Hospital, 78 Waterlook Road North Ryde, among many others.

Today, Equilibrium AirConditioning is helmed by Managing Director, Berislav Crnkovic, who has been with the company for 19 years and has seen much of the evolution that has taken place to make Equilibrium what it is today. Crnkovic has been described by colleagues as an inspired leader who displays both confidence, theoretical and technical acumen, which facilitates effective leadership, collective problem solving and promotes cleverly engineered solutions which consistently satisfy company stakeholders.

The talented team at Equilibrium AirConditioning has grown to include various departments such as; management, engineering, services solutions and project management teams. This organisation allows us to best meet client expectations with cost effective, reliable air-conditioning solutions.

We remain locally owned to this day, and take great pride in our sense of community. We proudly support many different charity and community groups, including; San Foundation (Sydney Adventist Hospital – Cancer research), World Vision, Cancer Council and The Buildcorp Foundation (Lifeline and suicide awareness and prevention). We feel it is important to give back to the community and a social responsibility to be part of things that are greater than ourselves.

To find out more about the services we offer, please visit our services page. We are proud of our history, and look towards the future of our industry with much anticipation and excitement. Equilibrium AirConditioning has been servicing the commercial industry for many years, and will continue to do so for many more to come.

Gold Sponsors at the Novus Foundation Gala Dinner 2018

May 8th, 2018 by

Novus Gala Image 2018

We are extremely excited to have attended the Novus Foundation Gala Dinner 2018 last Saturday, May 5th, as GOLD sponsors. It was a wonderful evening, raising much needed funds and support for at-risk youth living in the North Shore region.

The Great Gatsby themed Gala Dinner was held at Miramare Gardens, Terrey Hils and attended by Equilibrium staff members; Joe Maric, Robert Pham, Berislav Crnkovic, Paul Stevens and Timothy Caunt. The Novus Foundation is a not-for-profit collaboration between Adventist HealthCare (AHCL), Wahroonga Rotary, and the McCarroll Motor Group. All funds raised from the evening will be invested in projects for these youths, and include; mentoring, education and healthcare.

While the North Shore region is a predominately affluent one, the incidence of youth at-risk is surprisingly high, and presents a real problem that transcends socio economics. The reality is, that we need to band together to strengthen our younger generation, because this is something that can affect any family, even our own.

Saturday night was filled with amazing food, delightful entertainment and successful live and silent auctions. It was wonderful to see hundreds of members of the community come together and raise thousands for such an important cause. The team at Equilibrium Air Conditioning were very honoured to be part of it.

Proud Platinum Sponsors for Buildcorp’s The Party No.5

April 11th, 2018 by

On Saturday March 10th 2018, Buildcorp Foundation hosted their fifth fundraiser gala event, Party No. 5, in support of mental health and suicide prevention.  Equilibrium Air-Conditioning were, once again, proud to be Platinum Sponsors of the evening.

It was an honour to be a part of the highly successful occasion which raised $500,000 for an extremely worthy cause. We are particularly proud of the remarkable efforts made by The Buildcorp Foundation to organise Party No.5 and the results achieved, year after year.

Since 2014, Buildcorp has raised a total of $1.5 million, and at Equilibrium, we are proud to have been a part of these efforts, raising money for Lifeline and awareness for suicide and mental health issues. Each $30 raised for Lifeline can provide one hour of support on their crisis support chat. This can be a matter of life and death for struggling Aussies.

In 2015, an average of eight Australians were lost to suicide each day, and suicide remains the leading cause of death for persons aged 15-44 in our country. These are some alarming statistics that illustrate the fact that something needs to be done to prevent the heartache and suffering that inevitably follows the loss of a loved one to suicide. Human life is too precious not to act now to prevent such tragedies.

Buildcorp Foundation Chair Josephine Sukkar AM said: “We are so very grateful for the generosity of our supporters who have  helped us raise over $500,000 this past week. We have many people to thank, including sponsors whose support ensures every dollar raised at our events goes directly to the Foundation. We are also grateful for the hundreds of other contributors who donate prizes, funds, and their time and spend big on the night to help the Buildcorp Foundation collectively give more for mental health and suicide prevention.”

There was certainly some excitement at the new Penrith Panthers NRL Academy last week as the Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, was a surprise guest at the official opening.

Equilibrium was very proud to work on this state-of-the-art facility that consists of two full-size all-weather training fields, two gymnasiums, hot and cold plunge pools, a 61 seat team auditorium, medical rooms and a number of recreational areas for players and staff. We certainly enjoyed reading the Western Weekender’s article on the launch of the Academy: http://westernweekender.com.au/2016/03/turnbull-helps-panthers-launch-new-state-of-the-art-rugby-league-academy/

Equilibrium’s Ben Commerford was the project manager for the Academy and Dave Gonzaga was the design engineer. Equilibrium’s work included installing the change room and showers, team room and the Pool Hall, with work taking just 6 months from the design stage to completion.

$170,000 raised for Project Futures – Read Ivan’s Story…

February 2nd, 2016 by

_MG_4376-PF CambodianCycleChallengeAK

 

Last year Equilibrium sponsored Ivan as he decided to go on the journey of a lifetime and cycle 425kms across Cambodia with Project Features! We recently caught up with Ivan to hear all about his adventure – Here’s what Ivan has to say!

 

“Last year thanks to Equilibrium Air Conditioning who were my major sponsor, I was lucky enough to complete an adventure of a life time cycling 425 kms across Cambodia with Project Futures. Project Futures is a non for profit charity which raises money to end human trafficking, sexual exploitation and slavery. The team of twenty three cyclists raised collectively 170 000 dollars towards this great cause.

The purpose of the cycle was to raise our own personal awareness of the issue by meeting the very people we were raising money to help. In between cycling 3-7 hours a day in close to 40 degree heat and dense humidity we visited local centres we supported. They ranged from interventional rescue missions which rescued girls as young as six and seven from the sex trade to another organisation which helped to reintegrate rescued people and orphans back into the community.

 

It’s very easy to be disconnected in today’s digitally connected world, the issue here is that as humans we connect to people mostly we meet in our own lives. Hence cycling through Cambodia experiencing the beauty and hospitality of the country and its people and then seeing some of the major issues organisations on the ground were fighting to improve was life changing. I cannot describe the intensity of the experience. It is something that truly everyone needs to experience. Whatever cause you support, go there and witness it yourself, meet the people, eat the food, laugh, cry and share our common human experience. 

 

 

Thanks for reading

Ivan”
