Sandringham Yacht Club - Service

Situated on the foreshore of Port Phillip Bay, the Sandringham Yacht Club is Melbourne’s premier sailing club, presenting world-class sporting and event facilities right on the water’s edge.

Alongside the 356-berth floating marina and boatyard, the modern Clubhouse, encompasses a wide range of facilities including an a-la-carte restaurant, members lounge and members bar, café, meeting rooms, an auditorium, offices, and communications room. It is a sought after venue for weddings and events.

Sitting on the coast, the Club’s HVAC and mechanical systems and equipment are prone to corrosion and regular maintenance is fundamental to ensuring that systems remain functional and last. A.G. Coombs has been delivering HVAC and mechanical maintenance services to SYC for almost 20 years.

The A.G. Coombs team maintains everything from the Clubhouse’s HVAC systems, central energy plant, mechanical switchboards, and specialist kitchen exhausts through to the more straightforward split system air conditioners in the nearby Concessions Building; home to several marine-related retailers.

SYC has implemented wide-ranging environmental initiatives in recent years, including energy-efficient mechanical and air conditioning equipment, low energy lighting, and efficient electrical switching systems as part of the new Clubhouse project, and significant water management and reuse systems and waste management and recycling systems.

Primary air conditioning for the Clubhouse is provided by energy-efficient Mitsubishi VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) system. This system modulates the flow of refrigerant depending upon the heating or cooling requirements of the building. This technology has been optimised by the A.G. Coombs team with the assistance of Mitsubishi experts.

For almost 20 years, we have relied on A.G. Coombs’ expertise to keep our facilities operating effectively and efficiently. Year upon year, again they have proven their capability in delivering best-in-class system and asset management and maintenance services. Their support also extends to Club events; another example of their ongoing commitment to achieving the best outcomes for us, and for our members.
