Kelvinside Equine Training Facility, Aberdeen NSW
Darley Australia Pty Ltd commissioned the development of an improved breaking facility at their Kelvinside site in Aberdeen NSW. The facility included a horse pool, sand rolls, and associated infrastructure. The development also included construction of a new sand racing track for equine training, located adjacent to an existing watercourse and overhead high voltage power lines. MPC provided civil and structural engineering designs for the horse pool and sand track. Civil engineering designs for the horse track required consideration of drainage impacts on the adjacent open channels, design of new gulley crossings for the horse paths, and input into submissions to the Electricity Authority for approval to work under the high voltage power lines.
