Rockingham Centre is a regional shopping centre located south-west of Perth, Western Australia, with a floor area of 62,384 square metres incorporating 215 tenants.
The existing emergency and exit lighting that was installed across the site was powered by NiCd batteries and monitored by a system that was no longer supported which resulted in a very expensive system to maintain. Most NiCd batteries have a lifespan of 3 years and therefore require regular battery or fitting replacements.
In late 2019 Clevertronics was referred to the Facility Manager at Rockingham centre by an existing Zoneworks user to discuss a solution to the emergency lighting system and how they could overcome the issues they were currently facing. The solution that Rockingham Centre was looking for involved a two-stage upgrade of the site. Stage 1 would be the replacement of all emergency & exit lights in the mall areas, where stage 2 would cover the back of house areas, plant rooms and the undercover car park.
