  • THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / A simple, fast and accurate solution was required to achieve the unique yet challenging 3D architectural features, while adhering to the tight construction program.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / > As speed and accuracy were key to the success of the project, customised pre-fabricated solutions were adopted, decreasing labour and time spent on site compared to a traditional stick build method. > Frames were detailed in-house and fabricated to mm tight tolerances with plywood directly fixed to the framing members and at the valleys and…

  • THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / A smarter building solution was required to achieve the large spans and irregular shaped trusses while accommodating the short erection times throughout the staged build.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / > Using a fully engineered lightweight alternative resulted in the elimination of significant heavy and costly structural steel. > Detailing and certifying the trusses to withstand the wind load and plant platform sitting on top of the lightweight frames, along with the load allowance of the hoists hanging below was a challenge yet made achievable…

  • THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Reduce structural steel and save time on site for the top level structures of the apartment and townhouse buildings.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / > SBS Group worked closely with the construction teams, presenting feasible and practical solutions to support many design challenges. > Hip roof trusses were designed and engineered to span over 12m at very low roof pitch to achieve the architectural intention for the oversized penthouses, including the load on internal mechanical services. > The challenging suspended facade was successfully detailed and…

  • THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Achieve the unique and complex layered roof design using a value-managed lightweight framing alternative.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / ‘SBS were with us the whole way to achieve the outcomes we all wanted.’ Dan T. – Project Manager   > The SBS design team worked closely with the builder, detailing and fabricating a steel frame system to achieve the project budget and design specifications. > A reduction in traditional structural steel elements allowed for greater efficiencies in the site installation time frames. > Resolving the…
