University of New South Wales, Centre for Quantum Computation & Communication Technology (CQC2T) Laboratory

Education, Fitout, Health and Research Facilities, Refurbishment
  • Kensington, NSW

The project brief included the 5-stage delivery of the CQC2T expansion within Building K15 inclusive of rooms LG01, LG01A, LG01B, LG01C and LG02. The extended CQC2T consist of ISO-standard 8 clean rooms to house 6 Scanning Tunnelling Microscopes (STM’s) and up to 4 to 6 dilution refrigerators, including utility areas such as preparation areas, workshops and a plant room. The team faced a multitude of challenges in delivering this refurbishment and fitout project for the University.

The CQC2T facility included highly specialised research equipment that required tightly controlled conditions to operate effectively. The services installed were engineered and constructed to reliably support these conditions. The equipment is sensitive to temperature fluctuations, electromagnetic interference and vibration. Thorough and exceptional care was exercised to ensure that the fitout and installation of specialised equipment comply with the stringent design specifications.

The facility was officially opened by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull (MP) in April 2016. It has received international and national commendation and is now looked upon as the source of technology for the next age of computers.
