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

22 November 2016

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.

Key advantages of the system include:

– Framing is fabricated into curved sections to suit the project design

– Elimination of packing

– Integration with other services

– Removing the need to traditionally stick build the facade on site, saving labour, costs and time

Pre-fabricated ground floor steel wall framing is also being installed, eliminating structural steel for a smarter, quicker and easier on site system.

And this is just the start of many framing applications to be delivered to site.

SBS Group has been awarded the contract to pre-fabricate lightweight steel framing systems for the spandrel/facade, ground floor and column framing, window features and 3-dimensional nose cone trusses.
