Project Description

An icon of Melbourne lost to fire; the Stokehouse restaurant on St Kilda beach is being reborn with a state of the art sustainable building.

Commencing in March 2016, the new Stokehouse will be bigger, better and greener. Working to a 5 Star Greenstar as built rating, the new building will incorporate many sustainable initiatives aimed achieving positive environmental and financial outcomes.

Central to this is the installation of a GeoAir geothermal heating and cooling system. A central plant with a total cooling capacity of 350KW will be installed to the building providing year round comfort at a fraction of the operating cost of a conventional system. In addition to the air conditioning, the GeoAir system will use waste heat to provide potable hot water passively for the kitchen.

A total of 35 GeoAir loops have been installed to the St Kilda site and as the building nears completion, GeoAir plant will be installed to the rooftop platform.

The benefits

The benefits that will flow the Stokehouse Restaurant from the GeoAir installation will include;

  • High efficiency central air conditioning plant offering significant energy savings
  • Waste heat passively producing potable hot water for facility
  • Removal of rooftop condensers significantly reducing maintenance costs in highly corrosive environment
  • Full BMS integration with high level interface
  • Significant contribution in achievement of GreenStar Rating

Scheduled to be open for the 2016 Melbourne Cup, the new Stokehouse Restaurant at St Kilda will be an icon of Melbourne and a sustainability showcase.

Stay tuned for updates on the landmark project.
