Project Overview
  • Project Atria Apartments

  • Builder Probuild Constructions

  • Architect Hayball Architects

  • Location Hawthorn, Victoria

  • Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / External Framing

Atria Apartments, located in the suburb of Hawthorn required a facade that appealed to prospective buyers.
Traditional structural steel methods were originally proposed but costing resulted in an expensive product. The builder then looked for a simple and cost effective alternative and with Probuild’s knowledge of SBS’s efficient products and design service, SBS was requested to site.

After analysing the previous designs requirements, SBS put forward a practical lightweight framing solution. Framing was fully designed with engineering approval for feature boxes and privacy screens coordinated, and fabricated to facilitate installation by the cladding contractors. With cladding directly attached to the lightweight frame, top hats were eliminated and framing easily and rapidly fixed into place producing this superior result.
