Project 102 The Caulfield
Builder Quadrant Building Pty Ltd
Architect Amnon Weber Architecture
Location 102 Balaclava Road, Caulfield North
Framing Used Top Level Wall & Roof Truss Framing
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 design shortfalls. Some additions and amendments were made to the design early on and implemented seamlessly on site.
> The 3D model enabled us to determine where additional support for roofing was required and how the draining of the roof will work.
> Frames were delivered to site pre-assembled and erected in-situ quickly.
