888 Collins St - for video blog post

Here in Melbourne, we don’t wait for the right month to get the right weather. It’s actually a known fact that Melbourne experiences four seasons in one day; in other words, it’s not unusual to go from wet to dry, cold to hot, all within the space of a couple of hours.

Australia’s commercial construction industry has been pretty slow on the uptake of pre-fabricated building products. But will that be the case in 2026? We’re doing a bit of informed crystal ball gazing to get a feel for what the future holds for prefab’s role in 10 years.

6. From the Factory Floor to Site: Lightweight SBS Smart Frames for Bunjil Place


After months of designing, drawing, detailing and manufacturing, seeing the first SBS Smart Frames go up on site is always an accomplishment in itself.

Installation of the spandrel/facade frames is now underway at Bunjil Place – pre-fabricated and fixed with back pan sheeting to waterproof the facade and provide top hat fixing. The lightweight modules were engineered, manufactured to site specifications and then craned into place in large units once on site.
