Corner Victoria Ave & Terrace Rd, Perth
Current ESCO projects include the new 5 storey DURACK 2 building located in central Perth. The Design Brief and Specifications stipulates that the building is to meet a 5 Star ABGR rating and a 5 Greenstar rating.
To achieve the required ratings, the following fundamental measures require implementation into the buildings environmental design:
- High efficiency lighting
- Occupancy and daylight sensing
- Office lighting zoning
- Electrical sub-metering (BMS interfaced)
- Office lighting power density
- Alternative power source - Wind turbines
The development is expected to be completed in February 2009.
Data Centre Project
The Data Centre Project for the Dept of Education and Training was unique in that the Tender required the Contractor to Design and implement a fully flexible and modular system to suit the on-going changes and upgrades that the Dept required.
Working closely with ADC Krone, the team at Everett Smith & Co soon realised that there was no "off the shelf" solution for what was required.
A "One Off" Highband 25 Patching frame was developed, this frame is capable of terminating in excess of 9000 Cat6 cables and any cable is capable of being cross-connected to any other, this gives the Dept a truly flexible system which has capacity for Growth for many years to come.
The sheer numbers of cables caused the most concern, this problem was overcome by the extensive use of "CABAC" cable basket systems, this was installed both overhead and underfloor enabling electrical and Data services to be kept at maximum separation.
The Project also incorporated a new Electrical Distribution system and OM3 Multimode Fibre tie cables to all Rack Suites.
Everett Smith was proud to deliver this project and supplied an ADC Krone 20 year Warranty.

Construction on the new $100M IKEA Perth store commenced in October 2006 and reached completion in February 2008. The development comprises a combined 5,100m2 showroom and 7,000m2 warehouse, a 400-seat family restaurant and IKEA style children’s playground, and undercover parking for over 1,000 cars. It is the largest single tenant retail store in Western Australia with a floor space of approximately 25,500m².
The project consisted of extending the existing facility to incorporate a new double volume press hall to house new state of the art printing presses. Deadlines for press commissioning were critical to the client and all targets were achieved.

A 5-star diamond luxury resort hotel uniquely and dramatically perched above a 40-metre cliff face overlooking the Indian Ocean.
Raine Square is located within the quadrant of 298-306 Murray Street and 10-12 Queen Street. The development will comprise 42,500 square meters of office space over 21 levels with an average floor plate size of 2,100 square meters, approximately 10,000 square meters of retail space and 380 parking spaces. Significantly this project represents the first large scale category 6a Data installation in Perth.
The Perth District Court Building electrical services consists of a dual high voltage (11kV) incoming main with a maximum capacity of 3.7MVA, feeding a substation on level Basement 2, with a second high voltage switch room on level 12. Each substation contains two 1MVA transformers feeding a separate main distribution board, with a bus tie system to combine the boards in case of a transformer failure.
The building has been provided with a secondary back up supply, consisting of two diesel powered 1.1MVA standby generators. The changeover system is automatic, utilizing automatic transfer switches located on the main distribution boards.
The reticulation of power throughout the building is performed utilizing separate mains to each level, feeding the north distribution boards. The south distribution boards are fed via a sub-main from the north board on the respective floor.
The illumination system for the building is fully automated, utilizing the Dynalite control system. A head end computer is provided in the facility management office; this provides the system control as well as an interface for programming and manual operation. Controlsoft software is also loaded into the WLG computer at the security control station on level B1, allowing manual control of the lighting system from that location.
A Famco emergency lighting system has been installed. The system provides automated emergency lighting control, enabling testing to be performed at pre-programmed times, and producing a full test report displaying the condition of all emergency luminaries within the building. The Famco software is loaded onto the lighting control computer in the facility management office.
The uninterruptible power supply unit for the level eight state computer room was supplied by Chloride. It is a 10kVA unit, and is monitored by the building management system.
Midland Gate Shopping Centre
The Midland Gate Shopping Centre development involved the extension of an existing shopping centre that was non compliant with the current codes together with the construction of an 8 plex cinema to be located internally on the first floor level. The 8 plex cinema would be interconnected by a large void between the ground and first floor levels which would lead to complexities with the smoke exhaust system.
