About Club Mandalay

Mandalay is a new residential community located off the Beveridge exit of the Hume Freeway – just 40 minutes from Melbourne. Surrounded by sweeping landscapes and wide-open spaces, Mandalay is also home to an 18-hole golf course and the exclusive Club Mandalay.

Built by Trio Construct, Club Mandalay features an impressive exterior and entrance, a 25m pool, tennis courts, gym, café, pro shop and more.

The Brief

The team at Club Mandalay approached Urban Intelligence to design and install a range of custom technology solutions to match the facility’s unique spaces and the varying needs of its staff and patrons.

Briefed requirements were as follows:

  1. A tailored and foolproof security and access system
  2. Intuitive and flexible AV capabilities in key areas of the facility
  3. A simple music solution adaptable to different areas throughout


Urban Intelligence designed and installed the following technology solutions to address each of the three components to the brief.


  • A series of high resolution digital cameras were installed to offer full internal and external 24/7 monitoring throughout the facility and its surrounds.
  • Resort staff, members and visitors all issued with personalised swipe cards which are customised to each user’s unique access rights and restrictions. Up to 10,000 swipe cards can be supported to serve the club’s future growth.
  • Personalised swipe cards were integrated with the club’s point-of-sale software to allow users to purchase food, drinks and any items with a simple swipe – eliminating the need for cash or credit cards handling.
  • Automatic locking and unlocking of different doors and entrances across the facility according to specified requirements. Programmed requirements can be easily changed by approved staff members.at any time.


  • Two large areas within the facility were fitted out with sophisticated AV capabilities – the Multipurpose Hall and Bar.
  • Motorised screens and projector installed in ceilings for maximum space flexibility.
  • Central hub built for flexible source and display selection. Users can display whatever content they wish – such as laptop files, web content, videos, Foxtel, Apple TV – to any screen they wish.
  • All AV technology across the facility controlled from two iPads with ease and simplicity.
  • Sophisticated microphones installed for clear and reliable voice reinforcement.


  • Sonos digital music system and high-end speakers installed across the facility.
  • iPad control system to manage music selections and volumes in different areas of the facility at different times.

The final word

“Working with Lior and the Urban Intelligence team on Mandalay was a delight. From concept to completion, Urban Intelligence thought through every possible scenario that our club and its members might need and then built a system to suit. Their recommendations were sound and even when unforeseen issues arose, they dealt with them quickly to ensure that the project proceeded unimpeded. I would recommend Urban Intelligence to anyone. They are a very capable team that stands behind their products with exemplary service and support.”
