  • 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…

  • In the builder’s own words (Amir M. – Contract Administrator):   THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Alleviate cost and program restraints by guaranteeing a seamless installation process for the top level framing structure.   THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION / > Through the tender process, SBS Group and Figurehead worked together to identify any areas of concern and ensured that they were correctly designed. > 3D modelling and consultant workshops with SBS Group’s engineering department assisted in identifying and mitigating any risks of interfacing lightweight steel with adjoining building components. > Over…
