We were lucky enough to be involved with this exciting, new solar thermal building located directly opposite the Lyell McEwin Hospital at Elizabeth Vale.

 

Some of the buildings features include:-

  • High performance building envelope – optimisation of seasonal thermal losses and gains through external building elements
  • Fluid Solar Thermal Panel Technology for collection of high volumes of hot water
  • Solar powered HVAC, including:
    • Solar ThermalHydronic Heating
    • Highly efficient Solar powered Hydronic Cooling
    • Solar powered natural ventilation using underfloor air distribution (UFAD) with fresh, non-recirculated (single pass) air
    • Thermal energy storage in underground tanks
  • Extensive natural daylighting to floor space – carefully designed to limit solar radiation gains and maximise light infiltration
  • Solar powered smart LED lighting in all areas, for minimum internal heat loads and maximum visual comfort for all occupants during periods of reduced daylight
