MPN has broad industry experience across the following property sectors:

MPN has built an enviable reputation for its expertise within the Commercial Property sector. Commercial building projects are often characterised by constrained sites, deep basements and long spans of column-free space. With projects of these type, MPN investigates all options on a project by project basis, delivering the optimum structural solution for that specific site.

MPN has helped deliver many landmark residential projects, including ‘Newington’, the Sydney Olympic athletes’ accommodation and subsequent new suburb, and the Bennelong Point suite of buildings; which are some of the most luxurious and valuable properties in the country.

MPN has a strong and proven track record in the Hotels, Entertainment and Leisure sector. Hotels often have a repetitive structure that allows optimisation using various systems, with the final choice dependant on their relative economic benefit. The lobby and conference rooms always require long spans. The entertainment and leisure facilities we have designed are diverse and include sports halls and cinema complexes, as well as casinos and indoor theme parks. They are typically large box bespoke structures that require appreciation of their specific functions.

Mixed Use Developments are typically designed the residences on top and the commercial/retail under. These competing uses lead to a range of structural framing options, materials and approach depending on the relative value and importance of each. Early MPN input is an advantage to help determine preferred parking, office/retail and apartment layouts.

MPN understand the key considerations required when undertaking retail projects. Primarily these include keeping ahead of schedule and providing optimised design to ensure the centre opens on the target date, and working collaboratively; providing innovative, flexible design to ensure existing tenants and their customers encounter minimal disruption.

MPN has a long track record providing clients and contractors with detailed and efficient engineering designs for educational facilities including Day Care Centres to University Campus’ Lecture Theatres and Student Residential Buildings.

With a very specific skillset required, MPN continues to provide valued assistance to owners of historic buildings. Our dedicated services in this area, enables our client to transform their buildings to new uses, to extend and alter them for more efficient land-use (adding extra floors, or basements), or simply to advise on remedial and refurbishment techniques so as to return the building to its former glory.

MPN understand the key to successful industrial building construction is simplicity of design detailing, combined with minimisation of materials cost.
