JEC Thailand supplied, installed, and commissioned the E&M systems for Chula Block L, Chulalongkorn University, which included their air-conditioning & ventilation, water supply & fire protection, and electrical & communication systems.

The building is twelve stories tall covering a total area of 51,861m2, with the first five floors serving as a state-of-the-art tutorial centre, and the remaining floors are used as car parks.

Ventilation and Air-Conditioning Systems
For the ventilation and air-conditioning systems JEC has installed three sets of 325 ton chillers with a cooling capacity to serve 134 sets of FCUs and AHUs. On the third and fourth floors, 14 sets of VRV modules and 90 sets of FCUs have a combined cooling capacity of 555 tons. The retail shops have a ventilation system which has eight sets of KEF and KFF, and pressurised fans in the emergency fire stair wells to prevent smoke entering.
