Charles Perkins Centre, NSW
Builder: Brookfield Multiplex
Contractor: Cubix Interiors
Location: Sydney University
Project Value: $220 Million
Completed ahead of schedule and in time for the 2014 academic year, Brookfield Multiplex enlisted Cubic Interiors expertise to assist in the design and delivery of the world-class $220 million Charles Perkins Centre; a major University of Sydney initiative with 46,700 square metres of research and education space.
Rondo worked alongside Cubic Interiors, and Builder, Brookfield Multiplex, who were chosen due to their ability to deliver highly innovative and cost effective design solutions. This was achieved through the use of Rondo’s KEY-LOCK® Concealed Suspended Ceiling System and Steel Stud and Track. Rondo provided continual assistance by coordinating the product logistics and helping Cubic Interiors with the design criteria.
There were several design issues to overcome, notably with the curved walls, shelf load to walls and detailing ceiling systems, plasterboard and joinery; which is where the Rondo Technical team brought significant benefits to the project, facilitating the design for the high curved walls, and using Rondo Steel Stud and Track as balustrades on all levels and walls to accommodate services within the rooms.
With minimal interruption for staff and students, the Charles Perkins Centre has been completed, delivering a world class research and education facility within an active and operating university campus.
