  • THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Design and fabricate a lightweight steel frame system in lieu of timber and structural steel without compromising the structural requirements of the cantilevered canopy.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / In the builder’s own words: ‘The greatest outcome was the reduction in structural steel and successful resolution of the cantilevered canopy that enabled a full depth recessed pelmet to accommodate the internal blinds.’ Sebastian W. – Aspyer Group   > The SBS Group design team reduced significant structural steel for the canopies by hanging outriggers off…

  • THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Lower overall costs for the top level structure by reducing structural steel, minimising waste and materials and accommodating a changing floor plan when two apartments were combined into one.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / > The SBS design team and the builder worked together at tender stage to reduce the specified loading requirements for the roof and plant platform. Significant structural steel was replaced with lightweight steel frames, resulting in 10-15% overall cost savings for the client. > The system was designed to facilitate the…

  • 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…
