Project Details

The training facility projects comprised a mixture of the following:

  • New office facilities, Stallion Barns, Breeding Barns, Stable Buildings, Prep Sheds, Vet Barns, Round Yards, Studio Accommodation Buildings, Foaling Units, Multi-Purpose building and Residential accommodation facilities
  • New roads and road improvements including stormwater drainage infrastructure

Challenge Faced / Engineering Problem Solved:

  • High animal safety standards where required, so MPC paid careful attention to the design of connections in the structural framing such that no sharp edges or projections occurred that horses could potentially harm themselves on
  • All project sites required detailed assessment of stormwater drainage to ensure that rainwater runoff from the developed sites for design storms were adequately controlled safely and efficiently in accordnace with local council guidelines

Safe Strong Stable Solution

Construction systems used included:

  • Buildings supported on high level and pile foundations
  • Reinforced concrete ground slabs and footings
  • Loadbearing precast panels to numerous buildings
  • Structural steel framed roofs and awnings
  • Timber framing for residential facilities
  • Site roadworks, pavements, ramps and carparking
  • Site stormwater infrastructure and Sediment basin
