University of Sydney: Charles Perkins Centre

The Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney is a $220 million research and education building, developed under a design and construction contract in time for the 2014 academic year.

The 6-level, 46,700 sqm facility dedicated to researching the cause and treatment of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease can cater for 950 researchers and over 1,400 students. The three main sections of the building include an administrative section, a research section and a hospital section where people with obesity-related illness come to be treated.

“What sets this building apart is the incredible internal atrium with its curved balustrade and spiralling stairs,” said Robert Migliorino, Cubic’s Chief Executive Officier. Cubic completed the detailed documentation of the internal atrium from the concept provided by FJMT Architects, and supplied and constructed the ceiling, stairs and balustrades.
