Strathmore Hotel Automation Case Study

Strathmore Hotel Automation Case Study

Middy’s TechEnergy and Smart Tech Electrical combined to give the 165 year old Strathmore Hotel a significant technology upgrade. Staff are now able to control the many staging areas of the venue at their fingertips with a fully integrated C-Bus automation system.

Adelaide’s iconic Strathmore Hotel is ideally placed within walking distance from Adelaide Oval, Festival Theatre, Sky City and the Adelaide Riverbank. Recently, the hotel completed a refurbishment to ensure its continued success.

Construction consisted of a complete renovation of the two-storey building including new bars, kitchens, gaming room and outdoor areas, all by Schiavello Constructions. The electrical work was completed by Smart Tech Electrical and consisted of integrating a C-Bus automation system capable of automating entire staging areas including kitchen and restaurant, dining areas, gaming area and more. It also involved a main transformer upgrade, main switchboard and distribution board upgrades and updating lighting throughout.

“The challenging part of this project was incorporating the old with the new throughout the building. Strathmore Hotel has been a very well-known pub in Adelaide for a long time. We wanted to be able to showcase our work in an establishment that a lot of people will visit and hopefully appreciate the work that has been put in by all trades,” David Martin, Director at Smart Tech Electrical said.

Since the completion of the project, the most noticeable change is the look and feel of the establishment. The bar and restaurant on the 2nd floor provide an open dining experience, with an outdoor feel on the balcony. The iconic venue now showcases the latest automation technology whilst maintaining its historical charm.

The install:

  • C-Bus Automation System Install
  • Main Transformer Upgrade
  • Switchboard & Distribution Board Upgrade
  • LED Lighting Upgrade
Right from the start, the support given by Middy's TechEnergy was fantastic. Not only did they provide what was required, they also attended our toolbox meetings to discuss C-Bus and the functionality of the system and could answer all questions related to the project. SA TechEnergy Representative Paul Glassenbury provided great service throughout - David Martin: Director, Smart Tech Electrical
