Kincoppal School Rose Bay
mgp were involved with three projects at Kincoppal School, Rose Bay, involving civil, mechanical, electrical and hydraulic design.
The first involved the refurbishment of the Junior School Administration area. The existing mechanical, electrical and hydraulic systems were upgraded to suit the new floor plan. An extension of the existing fire hydrant system, and the inclusion of a fire hydrant pump were incorporated within the design to meet code requirements.
The second project involves the development of the old 25m swimming pool, transforming this area into a deck and amphitheatre.
The third, and largest of the projects, is the development of a new Year 12 Learning Hub. Designed by BVN Architects, the existing gymnasium will be transformed into a multi level-learning hub within the existing structure. MGP will be designing the civil, mechanical, electrical and hydraulic requirements of the new hub, utilising the existing infrastructure to offer the state of the art facilities at the school.
University of Sydney - Life, Earth and Environmental Sciences Facility
We’re excited to be part of the team working on the construction of the new Life, Earth and Environmental Sciences facility at the University of Sydney. The nature of the building and the Science facility provides an opportunity for the construction team to use materials and systems that are sustainable and have a minimal impact on the environment.
From a hydraulic perspective not only will materials be carefully selected but the multiple water systems involved; supplying drinking water, non drinking water, will also include reverse and flow osmosis technology for pure water for the research labratories. Lab waste will require a specialised drainage system involving pre-treatment before entering the main Sydney Water system. MGP will also explore symphonic drainage. This system provides flexibility as it doesn’t have the constraints associated with a proprietory system and its associated costs.
mgp will be designing the fire hydrant, hose reel and storage, ensuring they comply with the National Construction Code of Australia (NCC).
University of NSW - Material Science and Engineering Building
mgp are proud of the recent award we received as part of a team of designers and builders for the Materials Science and Engineering Building (MSEB) at the University of NSW. This project won the Master Builders Australia (MBA) National Awards for Excellence in Construction - Best Tertiary Building $50,000,000 and over.
The University of NSW undertook a major project to provide new infrastructure to their Physical Sciences precinct. This nine-storey building will provide facilities of laboratory spaces, teaching and learning areas as well as workshop and research spaces.
mgp provided the design and coordination of hydraulic services using Revit 3D modelling. Services include drinking, non-drinking and laboratory water supply, sanitary, trade waste and laboratory drainage.
University of Technology – UTS – Thomas St Building
Hydraulic, Fire and Sydney Water Services. Part of the University’s City Campus Master Plan, the 4 storey Facility of Science and Graduate School of Health development includes a café, teaching and research labs, social spaces and Alumni Green roof. mgp conducted the design of hydraulic, fire and Sydney Water Services for this development.
University of Technology – UTS – Broadway Building
New Facility of Engineering and Information Technology is an innovative 14-storey structure, which accommodates 4,300 students and 500 staff. With 23,500sqm of useable floor space, it provides students and academics with interactive breakout spaces. mgp’s role in this development was to design and provide Hydraulic services with special requirements including rainwater re-use and urinal waste storage to extract phosphate for agriculture/fertilser research.
mgp were part of the team working on the upgrade of four sites in Bankstown, Blacktown, Liverpool and Penrith as part of the Sydney Ambulance Metropolitan Infrastructure Strategy.
The new station sites were identified through the NSW Ambulance Sydney Metropolitan Infrastructure Strategy. The strategy aims to improve ambulance response times by reorganising and enhancing infrastructure to better serve NSW paramedics. The new stations will serve the ‘hub and stand-by’ model of emergency response, where stations will act as hubs that accommodate vehicles and training services, and where paramedics will start and finish their shifts.
mgp coordinated the project, including building plan approval, major and minor works (sewer design, deviation and extensions), to ensure all sites provide NSW Ambulance with excellent onsite services.
Blue Mountains Cultural Centre
The new Blue Mountains cultural centre located in the heart of the Blue Mountains in Katoomba is an eco-friendly u shaped building consists of a 600sqm gallery, library and café. The building structure also has a Coles Supermarket and a 3 level car park. mgp’s role in this development was to design and deliver the Sydney Water Infrastructure services.
HMAS Albatross – Nowra
Phase 2 of LEAP saw the redevelopment of Naval Air Station Nowra, including 170 accommodation units and site amenities. mgp’s role in this development was to complete a sewer deviation, to allow construction of the new buildings and hydraulic services to all new and existing buildings.
