UNSW Material Science & Engineering Building

Cubic undertook a vast range of works, including fitting the metal and blade ceilings, setting the ceiling and joinery ceiling in the building’s Innovation Centre (where it also fitted operable walls) and installing thermal slab insulation. Cubic also fitted Hebel service risers, solid partitions (including for the labs and offices), glazed partitions, doorsets and composite sheet panelling. Cubic’s team also completed heavy duty and high density works in the building’s basement engineering lab.

“We provided high detailing in and achievement of acoustic throughout the project between the engineering labs and office spaces,” said Cubic’s Project Director Rick Muang. “The sequencing of works also allowed a fast track of high-volume services rough-in to the main service corridors and labs.”

Cubic introduced new products and solutions during the works to fit with the client’s vision and budget. “Both the one-way ceilings systems and acoustic blade ceilings are unique to this project in their as-built configuration,” said Mr Muang. “Acoustic sealants of penetrations into labs from the main service corridors also required specific detailing. We also successfully used Hebel PowerPanel to create fume cupboard risers and services risers.”
