Virgin Active Club – Collins Street

Project Overview
  • Project Virgin Active Club – Collins Street

  • Builder Leighton Contractors

  • Architect WMK Architecture

  • Location Melbourne, Victoria

  • Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / Pre-Fabricated Bulkhead Framing

With Virgin launching their second Active Club into the Melbourne market, 567 Collins Street was the perfect fit; a prestigious building in an ideal and convenient location. Being the first point of contact for members, the front desk of the state-of-the-art facility was detailed with a striking hexagonal floating ceiling feature designed to engage and inspire.

SBS Group was approached by the successful contractor to create a feasible lightweight pre-fabricated solution for the feature while still retaining the architectural  floating appearance. Following initial consultation, an alternative to a conventional on site build was developed. Superior suspended ceiling panels were constructed rigid and most importantly for the contractor, fabricated to be quick and easy to install on site. Framing was designed to remove bulky droppers, satisfying both the architect and client alike.
