Flinders University Carpark & Solar
Bedford Park, SA
TSDB have undertaken a series of commercial projects for Flinders University across their Bedford Park campus under a negotiated design and construct capacity. These projects include the full design, engineering and installation of large electronic carpark LED signs with associated services infrastructure, the installation of additional full campus wifi coverage, civil rework to 14,000m2 carpark, installation of a 1.1Mw elevated solar array over the carpark and rework of second carpark and construction of inverter building to support the solar project.
The carpark signage project incorporates all new entry sensor loops at the 22 carparks across the campus, electronic pillar boxes with campus wide in ground electrical support infrastructure and coordination of an extensive signage package which was engineered and fabricated in Sydney.
The final delivery of this project also provides the University of real time data on the number of cars in each of the 22 carparks which house 5000 carparks. This data is then utilised on their public website for information on available carparks and the introduction of an App for students, staff and visitors to assist with real time navigation to the closest and available carparks. The Solar Array project was through early contractor involvement to finalise the design requirements and construction methodology planning for both the complete resurfacing and civil stormwater replacement to a 14,000 m2 carpark,
