Project Medibank – 720 Bourke St
Builder Brookfield Multiplex
Location Docklands, Victoria
Framing Used SBS Ultra Frame / External Framing
720 Bourke Street – home of Medibank Melbourne is an impressive office tower in the existing Docklands.
With its striking façade box curved features, SBS Group were contacted by the contractor and builder to design the façade and upper level plant room criteria. Keeping to simple, but realistic efficient framing solutions, SBS delivered pre-fabricated modules that were easily and quickly fixed off and clad directly on site.
Level 17 proved its challenge due to the inability of traditionally fixing the cladding once installed. SBS engineered and pre-fabricated a framing system that was pre-clad off site and craned into place. Panels were efficiently designed to enable a water tight joint, therefore saving real time and construction difficulties.
Complex shapes and framing were drafted in house and co-ordinated with the installation team.
