Key project challenges and how they were addressed
The SmartLIFE Centre is a regional centre of excellence in the teaching and training of renewable technologies and the installation of renewable technologies. As such the mechanical and electrical design was a real challenge as most of the newly emerging renewable technologies were incorporated into the building to demonstrate these to learners and to replicate real work environments.
