Wynyard Place will be one of Australia’s premier commercial and retail precincts due to its architectural design, location in the heart of the Sydney CBD and its integration with one of the city’s busiest commuter nodes, Wynyard.
The development will transform the Wynyard area, as well as being a hub for office workers, commuters, shoppers and the community at large.
The centrepiece is a 27-level PCA Premium Grade commercial tower (10 Carrington) offering world-class facilities, amenities and finishes to set a new standard in workplace design.
The development will also include the restoration of Shell House and 285 George Street, both these two heritage buildings will be returned to their original use as prestigious office buildings. Wynyard Lane will be revitalised, and a major upgrade completed to Wynyard Station’s George Street entrance connecting to a grand transit hall and public concourse.
At this stage of the project mgp has completed the Sydney Water authority major works stormwater design.

William Inglis Thoroughbred Arena and Hotel
The new William Inglis development, adjacent to Warwick Farm Racecourse, includes an Accor 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 proposed 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 involved reducing the number of sewer pump stations to one central plant using a gravity sewer. This ensured 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 was completed at the end of 2018.

Harbord Diggers Freshwater
The new redevelopment of the Harbord Diggers on the Northern Beaches provided mgp with the opportunity to develop the hydraulic design for construction, along with processing the Sydney Water Building Plan Approval and Section 73 application.
This large multi dwelling and commercial site will house 96 units, speciality retail outlets, Club, indoor pool and gym, along with extensive underground parking.
The complexities of the site arose from designing and constructing the new services while working around a temporary Club still in operation.
The existing infrastructure was not sufficient to meet the demands of the new buildings notably that of water supply for drinking and fire fighting purposes. As such mgp designed water tanks which work specifically to supplement the authority water main, without putting stress on their existing infrastructure. The project design will enable this large commercial and residential site to have no impact on the local authority services, and provided efficient and effective amenities to the site.
Project completed in 2018.

Warriewood Shopping Centre - Warriewood
mgp were part of the team involved with the re-develop and improvement of the facilities at Warriewood Shopping Centre.
The objective of the project was to increase the Centres retail premises by 50% and double the car parking; which involved 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. The benefit for the client meant only one pump station to maintain and run, instead of the original three, and significant cost savings for Ikea in the long term. Given the large site, and extended distances from the 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.

221 Miller Street North Sydney
North Sydney continues its makeover and the Sydney Water team at mgp worked with the project team on the redevelopment of 221 Miller Street.
