Architect Crosier Scott
Location Dandenong South, Victoria
Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / Pre-Fabricated Facade and External Feature Framing
Building smarter starts with designing smarter.
Following initial consultations with the architect, the SBS Group design team developed a smarter pre-fabricated solution for the external fin and stepped facade elements. The proposed system was designed to replace traditional structural steel or timber with a lightweight steel alternative for easier on site construction.
With the design recommended by the architect and approved by the builder, the contract was soon awarded to SBS Group and manufacture of the frames commenced. Using light gauge steel, the frames were fabricated into manageable sizes and delivered to site for a fast and easy install.
By integrating all the steps of the facade into our pre-fabricated design, the builder was only required to construct minimal structures to work to. Members were designed to be spaced at specified centres to provide fixings for the cladding material with the system saving time and improving productivity for the cladding contractor. The use of EWP’s in installing the lightweight frames replaced the need for any cranage.
In what was a successful combination of the builder, contractors and suppliers working together, the project was completed 6 weeks ahead of the scheduled date.
