Digitally-enabled urban renewal

Just south of the Adelaide CBD in South Australia is the municipality of Unley. Like many suburban communities Unley has a village-like feel with a major road corridor - King William Road - serving as somewhat of a heart to the local services offered to citizens.

When it was time for a face lift, SAGE Automation was primed to ensure this community village would benefit from a range of smart community upgrades that would provide the city with greater intelligence on the precinct's use, and deliver more engaging experiences to the local community.

The opportunity

King William Road is a popular main street in the City of Unley, South Australia. With a distinct village-feel, the area is home to many boutiques and cafes/restaurants, making it a popular destination for shopping and dining.

The paved surface of King William Road (KWR) had reached the end of its lifespan. As part of the surface upgrade project, the City of Unley saw an opportunity to transform the road, utilising smart city technology and creating flexible spaces that enhance the precinct for the community.

Working with principal contractor BMD, SAGE identified and implemented opportunities to deliver a space which would employ efficient use of space and energy, while adding community-focused designs for the precinct.

In addition to creating a people-focused space, SAGE also provided the City of Unley with tools to improve control and management of their assets.
