  • TOTAL L/M OF STEEL SUPPLIED / 9200.46   TOTAL M2 OF SBS GROUP FOOTPRINT AREA / 690.5   FLOOR COUNT / 7   KEY BENEFITS OF USING AN SBS GROUP LIGHT GAUGE STEEL FRAMING SYSTEM / – Careful attention to detail during the design phase enabled immediate, easy and streamlined installation. – No straightening of walls as steel does not rot, twist, warp or shrink. – Steel frames were fabricated to exact site specifications, reducing on site adjustments and material waste both in the factory and on site. – Full…

  • Today’s construction industry is fast paced. Smarter ways of building are essential in keeping up with demand, project deadlines and staying on budget.   When it comes to the construction of top level framing for mid-rise apartment projects, cold formed steel wall and roof trusses are becoming the preferred choice for many builders. The advancements in cold formed steel framing offers competitive solutions with savings achieved in many ways.   The SBS Group lightweight and high strength engineered framing system replaced the traditional timber and structural steel for this 5…

The SBS in-house detailing team coordinated shop drawings, 3D modelling, framing layouts and independently engineered 1507 certification.  …

  • When presented with the option of using either timber or steel for the top level of the apartment project, the builder chose the smarter alternative: light gauge steel.   Using a pre-fabricated LGS solution, a lot of the initial design ground work was completed before the frames arrived on site. Installation was therefore streamlined and quick with positive flow-on effects to the following trades.   Full shop detailing, engineering and framing layouts were combined with 3D virtual reality modelling and shop drawings, coordinated by the SBS Group team. Once drawings…
