567 Collins St, a new CBD office tower boasting some 26 levels of modern architectural features has become one of Melbourne’s showpieces. As the development grew, designing the lobby became a key feature as the first impression for prospective clients. As a result, an impressive wave diamond pattern cranked ceiling was created, utilising reflective neon lighting and hidden services. A variety of designs were considered involving coordination of recessed lighting, acoustical and mechanical services. Specialised and efficient solutions were required, and as pursued, SBS Group were engaged to provide alternative smarts, utilising its vast experience of pre-fabricated solutions for complex projects.  Detailed design commenced, concepts were workshopped, adjusted and approved, while keeping in mind building constraints and tight budgets. As the pre-fabricated process got underway, a specialised clip on panel system was developed, incorporating lighting recesses and more importantly, the ability to pre-clad the triangulated frames off site. For strict and precise quality control involving over 200 different shapes and over 560 frames, detailed 3D shop drawings and layouts were meticulously delivered. As panel by panel locked into place, a truly inspirational ceiling was created and the hours of detail design and modelling finally materialised.
