  • THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Develop a faster and easier to install system for the top level structure while still complying with the required building regulations.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / > The lightweight alternative replaced substantial structural steel and was engineered to support the roof plan platform. > Fire rating allowances were accommodated within the SBS Group design, satisfying the FRL (fire resistant level) in accordance with AS 1530. > Using the latest BIM modelling 3D technology, framing was detailed and fabricated to millimetre perfect accuracy. > SBS Group…

  • THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / A pre-fabricated system was required to support a 7.5kPa snow load without jeopardising the ceiling height, achieve the required BAL rating and enable quick erection on site due to limited construction time frames.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / > Top level walls and trusses were detailed, engineered and fabricated in-house to withstand heavy snow. Frames were delivered in time before the winter season sets in. In the builder’s own words: Angus K (Project Manager) > By using a LGS solution we avoided using a portal framed…

  • THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / As the design of the roof truss shapes most likely could not have been fabricated from timber, an accurate, reliable and easy to install steel frame system was required.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / > The in-house design and construct approach for the top floor and roof truss framing ensured a controlled LGS alternative, removing unnecessary structural steel from the design. In the builder’s own words: Richard V (Construction Manager) > Seeing the complete structure in a fly through 3D model greatly assisted with foreseeing some…

  • One of Australia’s Largest Light Gauge Steel Framing Projects   THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Facilitate engineering and logistical requirements of building on top of an operative shopping centre within a tight program.   In the builder’s own words: James K (Design Manager) THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / > Due to the nature and complexity of the project, as well as the systems engineering benefits, a steel framed system was chosen in the initial design stages. > On site, and in comparison, to using conventional concrete structure or timber, SBS Group provided…
