Luxury Apartment Living Reimagined

AT238 Perth is located on 238 Adelaide Terrace, only two blocks from Perth’s CBD. The impressive 32-storey project is a fusion of contemporary high rise living and urban allure, on the doorstep of an energetic precinct where health and wellness, retail, and fine dining meet.

With an approximate gross floor area of 9,600m² and an effective height of approximately 90m, with a design that seamlessly combines heirloom style and sophistication with lashings of convenience and luxury, AT238 Perth offers the best of modern living at your own pace.

AT238 fuses organic themes of nature with a glazed façade that reflects the changing light and sky. Bold architectural panels create a striking counter point to the glass facade, creating a dramatic focal point from all angles. A honeycomb geometric form wraps the façade, blending modern elegance with contemporary appeal.

“It’s a very good-looking building. It’s different to most other buildings,” explained Hanssen Owner, Gerry Hanssen. “There’s more of a feature around the building itself.”

Great care has been taken to create a wholistic experience for residences, from street frontage through to the internal fitout. A peaceful ambiance flows through the entrance lobby, greeting residents and visitors with contemporary seating and modern artwork, complimented by the presence of an indoor Japanese garden.

AT238 features 119 residential apartments ranging from studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as a 3-bedroom penthouse on level 30. With a neutral colour palette, refinement has been considered
and implemented in every corner of the project.

“The Bubbledeck flooring, plus a lot of features on the outside such as enclosed balconies, bi-fold doors into the living area and a garden balcony, are all outstanding and are enclosed with glass, so they can utilise them better in the city,” said Gerry.

Building amenities include a roof top deck with outdoor cinema, Lounge and bar area as well as further amenities on level 6 incorporating a 20m swimming pool, gym, lounge and games area, gaming zone, dining room, theatrette, business centre, dog wash, steam room and outdoor facilities.

Residents’ have access to a private dining room, on the rooftop to take advantage of Perth’s stunning sunsets, while Level 6 provides multiple resident kitchens and BBQ areas, for entertaining.

With health and wellness being at the top of everyone’s priority lists, a 20m pool, indoor gym and steam room ensure that unwinding will be a daily task, easily achieved.

Starting work on the project in March 2021, the project was required to navigate a stream of staffing challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however through careful management, the project was able to proceed as expected and to a supurb standard indicative of Hanssen’s reputation.

Pope Electrical manufactured and designed the switchboards and wrote the custom logic for the control systems.

Pope Electrical were responsible for supplying the switchboards and the Control System for the Car Park Exhaust and Stairwell Pressurisation Systems.

“We manufactured and designed the switchboards and wrote the custom logic for the control systems,” Owner, Bradley Pope said. “We used an Eliwell Evolution Control System and 16 Dwyer carbon monoxide detectors to control the five exhaust fans over 6 levels of carpark. The level of carbon monoxide is monitored to keep this at a safe level for patrons.”

The building stairwells are maintained at a positive pressure to prevent the entry of smoke and to allow the safe exit of patrons and the fire brigade to access the building in the event of a fire.

Again the Eliwell Control System was used to provide the logic for control of the pressurisation system along with ABB variable speed drives and four Dwyer static pressure transmitters.

Control Systems Engineer Nyi Myo Maung was one of the experts onsite throughout construction and the commissioning stage. Ongoing maintenance and calibration services are offered by Pope Electrical to ensure the installed systems are performing to the highest grade. The project ran smoothly, without any surprises, thanks to the relationship that has evolved between Pope Electrical and the lead contractor, Hanssen.

“We’ve had a relationship with Hanssen now for 10 years, over a number of projects,” said Pope. “What we’ve developed with Hanssen from the onset, to where it is now is a perfected design to suit the individual buildings. It’s evolved each time from one building to the next with similar concepts and minor changes in each instance.”

With highly diverse systems that are cost effective and well designed , Pope Electrical have established themselves, over 27 years in business as innovators in the design field, leading the way in manufacturing and installation of building automation and control systems.
