Smart utility management uncovers huge water saving for retirement village

August 24th, 2023

Collaboration on water management issues has delivered resource savings, operational efficiencies and cost savings beyond Keyton's greatest expectations.

Keyton, formerly Lendlease Retirement, engaged SUMS Group to monitor the water consumption at Brentwood Retirement Village, a site that passes through 4 boundary water meters to service a total of 547 villas and serviced apartments set in 60 acres of coastal hinterland.

To monitor the water usage SUMS Group installed data logging systems on each of the 4 water meters, recording the flow of water as it occurred and displaying the data in graphical form on the SUMS+ Portal.

After reviewing the usage data showing a minimum flow rate of 240 litres/minute, it was immediately apparent there was a substantial leak somewhere on the site. After identifying the source of the leaks and undertaking remedial action to fix the problem, Brentwood Village experienced a 58% decrease in water usage overall and a significant reduction on water bills.

Kam Basi, National Sustainability Manager, Retirement Living at Keyton, says:

Collaborating with SUMS on water management issues has been a game-changer.  The team’s approach and smart utility management solutions have delivered resource savings, operational efficiencies and cost savings beyond our greatest expectations.
