UCWPA, Wesley House
Welsey House residential Aged Care Facility at Military Road, Semaphore Park is a two storey facility consisting of 168 resident rooms, associated common areas, administration areas, central kitchen, laundry and plant facilities.
TRINAMIC Consultants provided feasibility, design, documentation and contract administration for mechanical, fire, electrical, electronic, telecommunication, nurse call, security, access control and vertical transportation services. Strong emphasis was placed on energy monitoring, control and management. LED lighting with automated C-Bus control and Dali dimming, 130kW Photo-Voltaic system, Energy Reclaim Ventilation units, central management of air conditioners are only some of energy saving measures incorporated in the project. Continuous monitoring of energy usage with automatic load shifting from mains to a diesel generator ensured that the maximum demand remained under the level agreed with SA Power Network.
The three stage construction was carried out with residents in place. Keeping the existing services operational during construction and ensuring a smooth transition to new services was therefore a key component of the design.
