Charles Perkins


The Charles Perkins Centre is Sydney’s latest state-of-the-art research and education hub for Obesity, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease. Opened in 2014, the building is six-storeys in height and includes over 46,700 square metres of offices as well as wet and dry laboratory spaces for over 950 clinicians and 1455 undergraduates.

The centre is named in honour of Aboriginal activist Charles Perkins, the first man of Aboriginal descent to graduate from the University of Sydney. The building’s interior architecture features a full-height atrium with curved balconies and interconnecting sweeping staircases.

Wattyl was selected as the preferred coatings supplier for this world class health facility due to the superior product quality and colour reproduction. Importantly, all Wattyl paints surpassed stringent environmental impact requirements for the facility and delivered on the project’s durability and coatings performance needs.
