The $25M Cairns Institute is a flagship building at James Cook University’s Cairns campus and home to twenty disciplines in tropical studies. It provides quality social science research facilities and a range of public spaces including conference, seminar, and exhibition space. The facility also includes meeting rooms, a next generation lecture theatre and café.
Seizing the potential of its location in Queensland’s tropical north James Cook University shaped its strategic planning as a university for the study of the tropics – essentially, it is in the tropics, of the tropics and for the tropics. Woods Bagot and RPA Architects designed the building to resonate with its site and setting while offering an imaginative and sustainable platform for the teaching, training, research and consultancy conducted by the Institute.
Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were chosen to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the entrance to the building and enhance airflow. The louvres windows are located along the top of the foyer areas and in floor-to-ceiling panels which are integrated with the Building Management System.
Imperative to the structure of the building was that all materials used could withstand cyclonic weather conditions. Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows meet all cyclone rating requirements without any modifications.
