Adelaide SkyCity Casino Upgrade

The Adelaide riverbank precinct has undergone some dramatic changes of the last few years and one of the flagship projects has been the 330M upgrade of the Sky City Casino. BE Switchcraft were honoured enough to be part of this project and helped our clients deliver a first-class product for the Skycity group. Building Automation is now a key part of construction projects and this project featured a strong focus on lighting control and room automation.

This project enabled us to provide our full Schneider Eco Expert package and streamlined the delivery approach for our customers.
We delivered over 130 x LV Switchboards, 8 x LV Mechanical Boards, 3 x Schneider Varset PFC, 4 x Schneider Accusine Harmonic filters and a complete building automation/lighting control system with over 1000 Lights, 200 Blinds, 9000 CBUS groups, 71 Dali Gateways and 142 Dali Lines.

We would like to thank our clients NSG Boffa and D-Stal Electrical for the opportunity to work with them on this flagship project and acknowledge our partners Schneider and Azzo who worked with us during the project.

The final outcome shows the long term benefits of delivering energy and technology solutions that help manage and reduce power consumption as we strive to be a more energy-efficient community.
