Project Chadstone Shopping Centre – Stage 40
Builder Probuild Constructions
Architect The Buchan Group
Location Chadstone, Victoria
Framing Used SBS Ultra Frame / Complex Architectural Bulkhead Framing
Following a successful partnership for a previous refurbishment of Chadstone Shopping Centre, the builder recommended using SBS Group lightweight bulkhead framing systems for the Stage 40 upgrade.
SBS Group worked closely with the plastering contractor, supplying an extensive range of pre-fabricated complex curved and straight bulkhead frames. SBS Ultra Frame systems were detailed and engineered with superior cantilevering load capacity, replacing the proposed traditional and expensive structural steel.
Frames were curved in two or three directions and designed to incorporate services as required. Plasterboard was typically directly fixed to the frames.
There was no wastage or cutting required on site with SBS frames delivered for quick and easy installation using a flexible joining system. The use of EWP’s to install also saved significant scaffolding costs.
