Smart ChillOUT Hubs

Council is pleased to announce that the commissioning of the three ChillOUT Hubs are complete and installed in the public domain as part of the Australian Government’s Smart Cities and Suburbs Program which aims to solve urban challenges and improve local community and liveability.
ChillOUT is a collaborative project between Georges River Council, UNSW and Street Furniture Australia which are smart, open-air community spaces. These prototypes offer people a free, comfortable place to meet, work and play. They also enable asset managers to monitor utilities, visitation and the microclimate
 


 

A Streetscape – Belgrave Street, Kogarah


The Kogarah hub site is located on Belgrave St which is just outside the library. It is a culturally diverse area with high density living, hospitals and health clinics all around, with Kogarah Station close by.
Street art is scheduled to go onto the ground plane, with cooling pavement paint.

This ChillOUT Hub offers a place to take a break along a busy thoroughfare, connecting the train station, hospital, library and offices. Office workers may choose to work outdoors, connecting to WiFi and plugging in laptops.

A Town Centre – Mortdale

The ChillOUT Hub is situated in the town centre, on the corner of Morts Road and Macquarie Place which offers many shops and services to its residents and can act as a meeting point for locals to dine, rest and catch up.

The prototype in Mortdale tests a completely off-the-grid solar powered solution. The solar panels are now up and running. Cooling paint supergraphics are also scheduled for installation at this site.
