Ceiling and wall framing systems from Rondo were installed in the newly built Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney, overcoming several design issues.

Builders Brookfield Multiplex enlisted the expert services of Cubic Interiors to assist in the design and delivery of the world-class $220 million Charles Perkins Centre, a major University of Sydney initiative with 46,700 square metres of research and education space.

Working alongside Cubic Interiors and Brookfield Multiplex, Rondo supplied its KEY-LOCK concealed suspended ceiling system and steel stud and track. Rondo supported Cubic Interiors throughout the project, coordinating product logistics and helping with the design criteria.

The curved walls, shelf load to walls and detailing ceiling systems, plasterboard and joinery presented design challenges, which were resolved with the expertise of the Rondo technical team who brought significant benefits to the project, facilitating the design for the high curved walls. Rondo steel stud and track were used as balustrades on all levels and walls to accommodate services within the rooms.

With the completion of the Charles Perkins Centre ahead of schedule and in time for the 2014 academic year, Brookfield Multiplex was able to deliver a world-class research and education facility within an active and operating university campus.

Rondo products supplied for the Charles Perkins Centre project included the KEY-LOCK suspended ceiling system and the steel stud drywall framing system.
