automate the operation of features, such as time-
controlled lighting and mechanical systems,
power consumption monitoring, and detection
of daylight levels and dim lighting. The BMS
is also interfaced with a weather station on the
roof of the learning warehouse, measuring wind
speed and direction, outside air temperature and
precipitation. When the weather station advises
the BMS that weather conditions are optimal,
the system then sends a signal to the louvres to
automatically open and allow natural ventilation
into the school buildings.
The combined effect of the materials and
colour palette used throughout this project
alludes to industry, yet has evolved into a fine
aesthetic founded on sophisticated detailing.
The elements are rough and ready, but also
composed and detailed in such a way as to
create a level of sophistication and sensibility
that is far removed from their industrial origins.
The Baldivis Secondary College project
was shortlisted in the National Dulux
Colour Awards in both the Public Project
and Interior categories.
