Apreco is overjoyed to celebrate its 25th anniversary this year and would like customers and employees – past and present – to share in this delight by reaching this momentous milestone.

Apreco had modest beginnings and fueled by a vision to improve building safety, we have continued to achieve this by offering the world’s best in air pressure control systems.

Since 1997, the company has attended to the specialist ventilation needs of a large variety of projects, such as hospitals, museums, data centres, airports, and high-rise buildings.

Hospitals and medical centres

Infection control is crucial in any medical facility and air pressure control is one of the frontline defences for the prevention and control of infections. Apreco have played the roles of consultant and designer in air pressure stabilisers for theatres, maternity wards, and special care units in renowned healthcare institutions such as:

  • Francis Crick Institute in England
  • CUHK Medical Centre in Hong Kong

Research and Development Facilities

When working with biopharmaceutical materials, cleanrooms with controlled air pressure are vital to control contagions, keep the integrity of materials intact and provide a level of safety for staff. Apreco provided expertise to several research and development centres where air pressure control systems were installed. These include the Texas A&M Health Science Centre and the AstraZeneca Research & Development Facility.


The best way to preserve historical pieces, such as artefacts and scripts, is through the installation of a Gaseous Fire Suppression system.  Apreco have provided design guidance and products in to numerous air pressure control systems in museums such as the M+ Museum in Hong Kong and the Qatar National Museum.

Other prominent projects include Facebook’s new facility in Ireland, the Redline North project in Qatar, KNPC Oil refineries and Crossrail.

The company would like to give thanks to every customer, staff member, and all interested parties for their involvement and participation in its growth. The next 25 years are sure to see even more inventive air pressure control systems from Apreco.
