Project Overview
  • Project Eastland Shopping Centre – Portal Framing

  • Builder Probuild Constructions

  • Architect The Buchan Group

  • Location Ringwood, Victoria

  • Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / Pre-Fabricated Portal Framing

Portal wrap framing was designed by SBS Group in conjunction with the contractor to expedite and create ease of construction on site.


With a high end expensive finish panel being applied, it was important that frames were critically manufactured within strict tolerances, enabling sheets to be directly fixed to sub-straights. Other items, such as glazing channels, were worked through to assist the glazing contractor with the re-engineered framing deleting a large percentage of the proposed structural steel. Once prototypes were installed and minor adjustments made, SBS went into production.


A quality and accurate lightweight engineered alternative enabling direct fix of cladding was successfully achieved over against traditional construction methods.
