Cochlear Global Headquarters
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Aligning research and technology synergies to create a collaborative environment and facilitate continued advancements in hearing solutions.
Cochlear required a new global headquarters to house 1,100 staff and their main manufacturing and research facilities.
Delivering solutions for unique requirements
There was a unique requirement to ‘tune’ the building to accommodate the microscopic vibration tolerances needed to produce the bionic ear implants.
Drawing on a unique analytic ability, Calibre Built Environment predicted the vibrations of the floor structures down to a person’s footsteps, which allowed our design team to adjust the building to meet Cochlear’s requirements. This included thickening specific post tensioned slabs and adding vibration control features.
