The City is excited to announce that renewable geothermal works at the Scarborough Beach Pool site have been successful and are now complete. Geothermal product...ion bores reached 960m and injection bores were drilled to 430m within the Yarragadee aquifer.
Preliminary results have been extremely positive and indicate that the process can achieve 45°C water temperature required to heat pools at the forthcoming facility. Securing geothermal energy for the Scarborough Beach Pool will reduce the facility’s environmental footprint and avoid the use of gas boilers.
It’s estimated that the geothermal process will cut the production of 1,800 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year and save the City of Stirling about $530,000 in annual running costs. The facility is set to open in early 2018.

ETC would like to congratulate Peter Hunt Architects and Jackson Architecture for winning the 2017 Best of State Commercial Design Awards with the Supreme Court of Western Australian project, in the 2017 Australian Interior Design Awards.
ETC was involved with the complete electrical and lighting design, documentation and construction of the Supreme Court of Western Australian project.
Construction about to commence on this amazing project involving ETC
2012 – IES Award of Commendation Exterior and Interior (WA). This project involved a new Library, Community Centre and Shire Offices to serve the local and wider community.
The exterior of the building is based on the key principles of passive solar design including north facing glazing, with shading for summer sun, solid east and west facing facades with minimal windows, vertical shading blades to the western foyer and high performance insulation.
For the interior both dayli...ght and electrical lighting concepts needed to communicate simplicity and well integrated design, as these reinforced the architectural and environmental design principals of the library. Budget and energy were a significant factor that needed to be addressed and underpinned the design solution. The extensive use of daylight was one of the key design objectives to reduce energy consumption.
The project is based on passive solar design principles, is highly insulated and double glazed. The environmental impact of the building is further minimised through a heat recovery system, conditioned air supply through under floor disbursement and a large Photovoltaic System.
A key feature of the design concept and the library and function hall spaces for the Mary Davies Library and Community centre are the structural trees and uninterrupted timber ceilings or ‘canopies’. ETC's lighting design achieved the vision of a clean, services free ceiling by using projector up-lights to indirectly illuminate the large open flexible spaces. Equally set around each structural tree column these expressive light fittings add to the overall design feature and have become an integral part of the design.
2014 – IES Award of Excellence (WA) for Internal Foyer and Auditorium.
The emphasis of external lighting to this key building reinforces the Colleges vision to provide a leading edge Performing Arts Centre equal to similar high end public facilities. The use of dynamic colour, LED sources and light reflected from or through the built form was thoroughly explored.
Design of colour changing LED and metal halide uplights to the exterior of the building results in an attractive sense of arrival and purpose embracing the College’s vision for the centre. The lighting provides safe movement around the exterior of the building whilst complimenting the architecture and enhancing the exterior vista and landscape.
