UNSW C25 Lowy Cancer Research Facility
Given their industry expertise, Cubic Interiors were recently involved in the fitout of the Lowy Cancer Research Centre at the University of NSW. This project not only incorporates cutting-edge design, but also provides the first-ever medical faculty where both adult and childhood cancer research will be conducted in the same place.
Throughout their involvement, Cubic Interiors were responsible for the fitout of the acoustic and plasterboard ceilings, drywalls, glazed partitions and the recycled black-butt wall cladding. In addition, they used a specialist central void balustrade with composite aluminium and coloured anodised trims and balustrade caps.
Cubic Interiors also installed all of the door systems at the Centre, built specialist epoxy finishes to lab areas and constructed certain areas of lab PC2.
Throughout this project, Cubic Interiors specifically designed and engineered alpolic composite sheets for the balustrade to the main void, which also included a ‘new’ shadow-line detail. In addition, folded sheet metal balustrades and stainless steel were also used in the main feature stairs.
Robert Migliorino, Managing Director of Cubic Interiors, said that given the tight delivery programme and specialist specifications, the Lowy Cancer Research Centre was, at times, a challenging project.
“As it was a medical research building, with specific requirement and architectural finishes, getting the project completed within the required time constraints was at times a bit of an obstacle,” Mr. Migliorino said.
“However, as of Cubic Interiors’ experienced and efficient onsite team, we were able to complete our responsibilities within this timeframe and within budget, ensuring complete client satisfaction,” he said.
Having completed a range of Australia-wide projects, Cubic Interiors continue to impress clients with their outstanding products and specialist services, producing quality project results.
