Hilton Hotel Kawarau Falls

Queenstown’s high influx of tourists every year creates high demand for 4-5 star luxury accommodation. Over the past 3 years, BDT has been involved in the design, construction, and commissioning aspects of Kawarau Falls Station Reserve, BDT’s second largest VRF project in New Zealand.

The Challenge

Queenstown’s high influx of tourists every year creates high demand for 4-5 star luxury accommodation. Over the past 3 years, BDT has been involved in the design, construction, and commissioning aspects of Kawarau Falls Station Reserve, BDT’s second largest VRF project in New Zealand.

The Solution

The Reserve North building was BDT’s very first water sourced condenser order of just over 2.1MW. This building was originally specified with another brand’s water sourced condensers, but the Mitsubishi Electric alternative proved to offer better low temperature performance, resulting in BDT securing the order. We believe that Reserve North is the largest water sourced job in the Southern Hemisphere. All of the systems have been commissioned by BDT in-house engineers to ensure the project is successfully set up right from the start. The hotel is finished to a very high standard and is rated as a 5 star hotel.

The second building on this site, Kingston West, is home to 96 MSZ-GE35VA High Wall Heat Pumps and achieves a 4 star hotel rating. To date, Mitsubishi Electric is the only air conditioning brand installed in Kawarau Falls Station reserve, supplying just over 2.4MW worth of equipment.
