Conceived as a joint venture between the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and St Vincent’s Mater Hospital, the Kinghorn Cancer Centre provides a unique and tailored environment for cancer research and care. Comprised of 11 floors and featuring cutting edge research facilities, cancer treatment facilities, meeting rooms and office zones, the facility is linked by a stunning public atrium with its maze of stairs and bridges.
Active Metal were engaged to fabricate and install the frameless glass balustrade system to the entire atrium which covers seven floors. Of note, Active developed a concealed fix system with a neat cover panel at the slab level. Works on the project also included a metal clad wall to the exterior of the building which assisted in achieving the building’s high level of detail and top quality aesthetic appeal.
