1 Bligh St: Clayton Utz Fitout 

Cubic excels at delivering fitouts which meet the needs of corporate clients, and where working within curved spaces is a challenging task.

The Cubic team designed and constructed the wall systems, suspended ceilings, doors and partitions for floors 13, 14 and 15 of 1 Bligh Street, which became the client ‘meet and greet’ floors for prestigious legal firm Clayton Utz.

The major geometric puzzle was the numerous curves in the building’s design. Cubic resolved the constructability aspects of the wall systems and partitions using CAD technology, and installed curving plasterboard walls with a first-class paintable finish and custom designed partitions, creating free-flowing spaces.

Acoustic quality in the spaces was of paramount importance. Two kinds of suspended ceiling were supplied and installed, a flush plasterboard ceiling system and an aluminium tubeline system which has a distinct visual aesthetic. Both deliver excellent acoustic performance, providing both noise and reverberation control.

“We are very proud to have been part of this iconic building in the CBD,” said Cubic Chief Executive Officer, Robert Migliorino. “There were a large number of door systems we designed and installed, including glazed doors, polyurethane doors, doors with engraved lettering, and meeting and conference room doors,” he added. “There were a multitude of finishes used on the walls and partitions on this project, and a lot of curves involved. It was a very challenging project, all the fitout set out was done with GPS.”

Cubic had up to 40 people working on the 1 Bligh project for six months from design through to final installation works. In keeping with the high environmental standards of the project, all timber, adhesives and finishes are low VOC.
