Our process explained and broken down

Step 01. Design

The SBS Group design team work in partnership with you to create a solution that meets your requirements and exceeds your expectations. Creating a practical, efficient and productive solution is at the forefront of our designs to maximise your project profits and speed of construction.

Step 02. Estimating

Projects are marked up and fully costed as a complete supply solution including the delivery of all framing, full shop detailing, and complete certified engineered systems.

Step 03. Shop Detailing & Engineering

All framing is fully shop detailed in house, coordinated with other trades and sent for your approval including comprehensive layout plans, individual frame details and all fixing locations. Framing is designed and engineered as a full system including 1507 certification, complying to ISO 9001 and a certificate of compliance by a registered structural engineer.

Step 04. Project Management

We manage your project from the initial stages through to completion, coordinating shop detailing, engineering, manufacture and delivery for an on time productive result.

Step 05. Manufacture

All framing is custom manufactured within a controlled environment by our own experienced metal workers for greater quality control and efficiency. Fabrication is not controlled by adverse weather conditions and other external factors.

Step 06. Delivery

Framing is delivered directly to site or to a specified location for ease of direct fixing and installation. Framing can also be delivered to suit crane lift schedules.
