Mitcham Council Civic Centre
The main objective of this project was to reduce the energy consumption of the Mitcham Council Civic Centre during off-peak times.
This was achieved by:
• Analysing the existing energy use of the building
• Identifying potential areas for energy savings
This project covered the assessment of the existing energy usage at the Mitcham Council Civic Centre and the implementation of energy efficiency measures to reduce off-peak energy consumption.
• A comprehensive energy audit report
• A list of energy efficient measures to be implemented.
• Energy audit: 3 weeks
• Final report: 1 week
Gumeracha Amenities - Adelaide Hills Council
Our very first project for Hyper-efficient was the humble replacement of an amenities building for Adelaide Hills Council. Our responsibilities were to document the hydraulics and electrical engineering and to make it sustainable.
Our role included:
• Engineering site inspection, design, drafting and specification.
• Hot water storage on a timer system to take full advantage of the Council's solar photovoltaic system.
• Diversion of rainwater for re-use in the toilets (utilising the existing tank, saving money).
• Energy efficient LED lighting on occupancy and daylight control.
• New electrical distribution boards, improving the site infrastructure.
"This is incredible. Those toilets were to be avoided previously, and now worth visiting.”
Laneway Lighting Options for Unley Council
Hyper-efficient was engaged by the City of Unley to investigate and make recommendations for lighting to a sample of laneways within the Council’s jurisdiction. These lanes typically form the rear are for access to the rear of the property, though are also serve as primary access in the to the front of properties.
• Glare and nuisance avoidance.
• General ambience and amenity.
• Easy to install.
• Generic one type of solution (if possible).
Solar lighting is an economical way to provide lighting to improve amenity for paths over providing power from utility via inground cabling. As the solar technology does require maintenance for cleaning panels, optics and maintenance of batteries, the Council should ensure that these maintenance resources are available to service unit faults, end-of-life battery changes and incorporate the manufacturer’s maintenance regime.
