University of Sydney

The University of Sydney has planned, over the next five years, to undertake approximately $1.4bn of upgrade works to the campus facilities as outlined in their Campus Improvement Plan. WS+P has generated a utility masterplan to identify areas of service which will require adjustments due to the proposed upgrade works including water, sewer, stormwater and gas. The $20m services masterplan included analysis of each upgrade in terms of location, population and general usage to determine whether any deviations, amplifications or adjustments of Sydney Water infrastructure services are required. Currently, WS+P are overseeing the construction of the approved adjustment works for the university. The construction has required extensive co-ordination with the contractor due to the vast amount of known and unknown services in close proximity to the installation of new lines. The program of construction works has also been limited due to restrictions on timing as no major works are to be executed during the university semester.

Epsom and Lachlan

Warren Smith and Partners were engaged by the City of Sydney to carry out a sewer and water capacity assessment for future developments proposed under the Epsom Park and Lachlan Precinct Development Plans. An assessment of the gross floor areas for both current and proposed developments was carried out. This was compared to the existing general mains infrastructure available to determine requirements for amplification or adjustments of any Sydney Water assets.

Barangaroo

On behalf of the Barangaroo Delivery Authority, Warren Smith and Partners has developed two masterplans for the development of the Barangaroo area.

The first masterplan assesses the sewer and water capacity for the entire Barangaroo development including Barangaroo Central, South, the Casino and Barangaroo Reserve. The report uses unique sewer and water loading rates provided by the client. These rates have been used in conjunction with the estimated sewer and water discharge loads and water demands to determine the required capacity for the proposed recycled water plants in both Central Barangaroo and Barangaroo South. Irrigation requirements for both Barangaroo Reserve and Barangaroo Central were addressed in this report as well as their respective potable water top-up requirements.

The second masterplan outlines a strategy for stormwater drainage associated with works at Barangaroo Central. The report indicates required stormwater deviations and amplifications to address current overland flow and flooding issues in the precinct.  The masterplan further proposes stormwater treatment and monitoring systems for the purpose of irrigation reuse and sustainable discharge into Sydney Harbour.
