James Brown Memorial Trust, Kalyra Woodcroft Aged Care Facility
Major redevelopment of the existing Aged Care Facility located at Woodcroft Drive, Morphett Vale. Upon completion the facility will provide 88 ageing-in-place rooms and 12 assisted living places. New residential wings comprise large common lounges and dining rooms. A new common use building will comprise large activity / performance hall, café, library, medical and administration rooms.
Trinamic Consultants provided feasibility, design and documentation for mechanical, hydraulic, fire, electrical, telecommunication, nurse call, security and access control services. Energy saving measures incorporated into design included 75kW Photo-Voltaic system, solar hot water system, Energy Reclaim Ventilation units and Schneider Power-Tag control and monitoring system which monitors energy consumption in real time and allows the user to analyse individual loads, therefore use energy more efficiently and economically.
The project is currently under construction and Trinamic Consultants are providing contract administration. The site is being redeveloped and refurbished with residents in place. Staged construction was established during master planning to minimise disruption to residents and staff. Keeping the existing services operational during construction and ensuring a smooth transition to new services was therefore a key component of the design.
