The City of Gosnells has recently opened the new Mills Park Community Centre which forms the centrepiece of the Mills Park redevelopment project. The facility achieved Australia’s first 6 Green Star Design Award for a public building and, together with new sports facilities, children’s play areas and rehabilitation of the neighbouring wetlands, will provide a wonderful resource for the WA community.

Designed by Hodge Collard Preston, and with ESD direction from AECOM, the facility includes a range of features designed to reduce its environmental impact and ongoing operating costs, including:

  • A 30kW solar array capable of generating 15% of the centre’s annual energy needs
  • A 50,000 liter rainwater harvesting tank ensuring the facility uses 70% less potable water than equivalent buildings
  • Energy efficient lighting and HVAC
  • Passive design

Greensense was engaged by AECOM and the City to provide an interactive learning display, designed to help educate visitors to the centre around the environmental performance of the building. To do this we are accessing real-time data from a range of sources, including the building management system, electricity, water and gas metering and local weather information. This data is then incorporated into a series of digital posters that are displayed on screens within the building, providing continuous updates to staff and visitors. You can watch a short recording of final Greensense Posterboard® solution here.

Paul McAllister, Project Manager for the City of Gosnells worked with the Greensense team to develop the display and is delighted with the finished product, which showcases a number of ESD features including the solar PV, rainwater harvesting and indoor environment quality.

“We felt we were in very safe hands with Rachel Hicks and her team and their ability to make complex data simple to understand, engaging and stylish was just what we were looking for.” said McAllister. “The final solution looks great, a job very well done by the Greensense team who were a pleasure to work with during the project.”

We are delighted to have another happy customer and look forward to working with the City of Gosnells on more projects in the future. For more info on how we can help you showcase your next sustainability project check out our Greensense Posterboard® software or drop our sales team a line.
