Victoria Street, Abbotsford has become a vibrant hub of apartment developments. With many buildings vying for place and position, the facades are becoming architecturally important.
Green Square was no exception, with its striking and dominant cantilevered facade. However, this created engineering and construction difficulties including natural obstacles such as powerlines nearby. The SBS Group design team set itself the task to develop innovative and feasible solutions. After consulting with engineers, contractors and the builder, SBS created a smart frame quick and simple alternative.
The pre-fabricated lightweight structural trussed framing, horizontal, tapered and vertical modules were pre-clad off site, craned into position and fixed off, resulting in an installation and time saving advantage for the builder.
