University of Sydney - Life, Earth & Environmental Sciences Facility

MGP were excited to be part of the team that worked 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 laboratories. Lab waste will require a specialised drainage system involving pre-treatment before entering the main Sydney Water system.  MGP also proposed symphonic drainage as this system provides flexibility as it doesn’t have the constraints associated with a proprietary system and its associated costs.

MGP designed the fire hydrant, hose reel and storage, ensuring they comply with the National Construction Code of Australia (NCC).
