Duty Free Upgrade – T2, Melbourne Airport

Project Overview
  • Project Duty Free Upgrade – T2, Melbourne Airport

  • Builder RHG Contractors

  • Architect GHD Woodhead

  • Location Tullamarine, Victoria

  • Framing Used SBS Ultra Frame / Complex Architectural Bulkhead Framing

As part of Melbourne Airport’s Duty Free upgrade, vibrant and inspiring ceiling features were architecturally designed – adding to the long-legacy of the international terminal.


With a long history in manufacturing iconic and distinctive ceilings, SBS Group was awarded the contract to pre-fabricate a mixture of diverse bulkhead shapes.


Using light gauge steel, the frames were manufactured in sections to tight tolerances. With bulkheads arriving to site ready for immediate installation, the whole process was an easier, faster and more accurate alternative to a stick build method.


The frames were custom designed to be suspended from droppers and fabricated to enable the direct fix of plaster or MDF linings. Integration of other services contributed towards time and cost saving benefits for the plastering contractor.
