Frank Jell Commissioning Services Pty Ltd was established
in March 1997 when four senior technicians, with over 120
years of experience in auditing, commissioning, hot smoke
testing and successful handing over of a wide range of
building mechanical and fires services decided to form
their own business.
Specialising in building mechanical fire services testing.
Our hot smoke generating equipment is second to none
and is able to handle test of all sizes, from a fume
cupboard to floor areas greater than 25 acres.
Our business provides a service in excellence to the Industry
by running a strong team of commissioning personnel and
this team is kept up to the current standards and
procedures with regular training and updating sessions.
Our instrumentation is limited to brands we know for
reliability and accuracy such as Shortridge, Alnor,
Lambrecht and Fluke. Our services include:
Balancing Airflows - Balancing airflows ensures that all
areas of a building receive the correct proportion of
Water Balancing - Water balancing is an important aspect
of air conditioning. It ensures optimum performance and
accurate control of closed-circuit, forced circulation water
systems, for heating and cooling giving the occupants a
better comfort level.
Smoke Testing - All hot smoke testing is provided by
shearing highly refined medicinal grade oil which leaves
zero residue with heat provided by LP Gas.
Stairwell Pressurization - An integral part of fire safety
measures is to pressurise building stairwells to prevent
smoke or fire entering the path of escape.
Laboratory Testing - Air leakage testing of Physical
Containment Laboratories and accessories at Queensland
Health Scientific Laboratories Centre at Coopers Plains.
Envelope/Building Leakage - We use fan pressurisation
testing of buildings to show compliance with the Building
Ultrasonic Fluid Measurement - Balancing of flow volumes
ensures optimum performance of all areas of the facility.
Thermal Imaging - Thermal imaging is the fastest and
safest method of early problem detection on electrical,
mechanical and process equipment, as well as the

WHAT IS GREEN STAR?
Green Star is a comprehensive, national,
voluntary environmental rating system that
evaluates the environmental design and
construction of buildings and, with 11 per cent
of Australia’s CBD commercial office buildings
Green Star certified, building green is now a
Green Star was developed for the property
industry in order to:
• Establish a common language
• Set a standard of measurement for green
• Promote integrated, whole-building design
• Recognise environmental leadership
• Identify building life-cycle impacts
• Raise awareness of green building benefits
Buildings have a significant impact on the
environment, consuming 32% of the world’s
resources, including 12% of its water and up to
40% of its energy. Buildings also produce 40% of
waste going to landfill and 40% of air emissions.
In Australia, commercial buildings produce
8.8% of the national greenhouse emissions
and have a major part to play in meeting
Australia’s international greenhouse
obligations. A commercial building sector
baseline study found that office buildings and
hospitals were the two largest emitters by
building type, causing around 40% of total
The property industry is well placed to
deliver significant long-term environmental
improvements using a broad range of
measures. More importantly, it is unique in that
it can directly influence and create behavioural
changes at all stages of the supply chain.
Although a strong business case can be made
for their implementation, there are barriers
within the property industry that often prevent
efficiency measures from being adopted.
The Green Building Council of Australia was
created to in order to address some of these
barriers. The Council’s objective is to promote
sustainable development and the transition
of the property industry by promoting green
building programs, technologies, design
practices and operations.
After an industry survey conducted by the GBCA,
Green Star was developed to be a comprehensive,
national, voluntary environmental rating scheme
that evaluates the environmental design and
achievements of buildings.
Green Star has built on existing systems and
tools in overseas markets including the British
BREEAM (Building Research Establishment
Environmental Assessment Method) system
and the North American LEED (Leadership in
Energy and Environmental Design) system.
In addition, VicUrban, in its work with the
Melbourne Docklands’ ESD Guide, provided
the intellectual property to assist in the
development of a local system.
Green Star has established individual
environmental measurement criteria with
particular relevance to the Australian
marketplace and environmental context.
