The sizes of the pods range from small intimate meeting spaces to boardroom-sized eyries. The colour scheme of the cladding ranges from white, metallic and orange with clear anodised aluminium framing and toughened laminated glazing.
“The installation was everything but standard and special in every aspect, from design to manufacture and installation,” said Cubic’s Chief Executive Officer Robert Migliorino. “A new technique was required to achieve the curving of apolic cladding into three dimensions.”
Cubic also complied with all low-VOC elements and Green Star elements of the project. Apolic cladding has several green star point-scoring features where the finished product contains a post-consumer recycled content of over 18% and post-industrial recycled content of 13.5%, it is durable, recyclable and non-flammable. All of the paints, mastics and sealants used for the project also had to comply. In terms of being applied to the pods, Apolic cladding is lightweight compared to standard aluminium sheets, so it is an ideal material for semi-suspended structures.
Multiplex followed an integrated fitout approach – another Green Star initiative – and this meant Cubic working in close concert with the overall construction schedule. Only 12 of Cubic Interiors’ 150+ strong workforce delivered this complex project.
