William Inglis Thoroughbred Arena and Hotel
The new William Inglis development, adjacent to Warwick Farm Racecourse, includes a hotel with pool, bar, restaurants and conference facilities, 10 hospitality function centres, thoroughbred auctioneer arena, parade and pre-parade ground, stables for up to 1,000 thoroughbred horses, grooming facilities including wash areas, horse walker, lunge area, feed store, isolation stalls and truck wash zone.
mgp were engaged to undertake the hydraulic services incorporating; fire hydrant and fire hose reels, potable cold water, rainwater reuse, natural gas, hot/warm water, trade waste drainage and plumbing, sanitary drainage and plumbing, along with stormwater design.
This project will provide a number of challenges, including dealing with rainwater reuse for irrigation and the demand for over 600,000 litres to facilitate the site, the limited infrastructure on the existing precinct, the originally the design included multiple sewer pump stations, a costly set up with high maintenance costs.
Our solution will be to reduce the number of sewer pump stations to one central plant using a gravity sewer. To ensure a high standard of waste water, back into Sydney Water's infrastructure, MGP included a muffin monster treatment plant and chemical dosing unit to reduce sulphite levels.
The project is due for completion later in the year in time for the Spring/Summer Sales.
Warriewood Shopping Centre - Warriewood
mgp are part of the team involved with the re-develop and improvement of the facilities at Warriewood Shopping Centre.
The Centre will see an increase in 50% of retail premises and a doubling of the car parking; involving a three level car park with undercover parking.
mgp’s hydraulic design services were required to design a pump station and drainage solution, fire protection and expanding the existing fire hydrant protection service at the Centre, providing a better and safer facility.
The challenge rose from the shopping centre’s location, within the reclaimed Warriewood wetlands, high water table and close to sea level. mgp designed an efficient pumping solution to convey effluent into the Sydney Water sewage system.

Ikea Marsden Park
We are always looking for effective and efficient solutions for clients. The new distribution centre for Ikea at Marsden Park was one such project.
Originally the design had been for three sewer pump stations to support this large site. Each sewer pump station would require regular maintenance and associated running costs. MGP was briefed on the project to use our hydraulic expertise, and provide workshop drawings for the plumbing contractor.
MGP's solution was to reduce the number of sewer pump stations to one, and use two gravity sewer connections to Sydney Water sewer mains. Paul Smit, one of MGP's senior hydraulic designers on the project, commented "The benefit for the client, to only require one sewer pump station to maintain and run instead of the original three, will over time contribute to significant cost savings for Ikea. Given the large site, and extended distances from one satellite office, one pump station was unavoidable within the design but utilising the gravity sewer connections means a more effective, efficient and cost saving solution."
169 Macquarie St - Parramatta
This new development will provide Parramatta with an exciting new precinct. The development will comprise of a new fifteen-storey building including plant area on the rooftop, with fourteen-stories to be occupied as the campus dwelling for the University of Western Sydney.
