1 Bligh Street, Sydney
Clayton Utz Fitout Levels 13-15
Delivering fitouts which meet the needs of a discerning corporate client and work within curved spaces is a challenging task - the kind Cubic Group excels at. They designed and constructed the wall systems, suspended ceilings, doors and partitions for floors 13, 14 and 15 of 1 Bligh Street, which are 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. 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,” said Cubic Group Managing Director, Robert Migliorino.
“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.
