Project The Caulfield
Builder Element Five
Architect Rothe Lowman
Location Caulfield North, Victoria
Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / Pre-Fabricated Facade and Feature Framing
The Caulfield – another example of time, labour and cost saving advantages of pre-fabrication. Working alongside the cladding contractor, SBS Group designed and manufactured external modular pod framing for the apartment project.
Using cold formed light gauge steel, the SBS Smart Frames were fabricated within a quality controlled factory environment and delivered direct to site for installation.
With all curves and dimensions calculated off site, the cladding was pre-curved, speeding up the overall installation process. The pods were manufactured as full face units and once on site, were simply lifted in using engineered crane hooks, designed and supplied by SBS Group.
The pre-fabricated system also allowed the window contractor to pre-measure their windows earlier for a longer lead time.
