Framing Used Custom Architectural Framing Solutions
THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / The upgrade took place outside general trading hours and within a live environment, requiring an easy and quick solution to achieve the custom bulkhead features.
THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION /
> The SBS design team worked with the contractor to develop a framing system that solved various challenges of the bulkhead design. This included structurally spanning between the front and rear of the bulkhead to eliminate central fixing and coordination with existing services.
> After the initial design concepts and prototype were signed off on, production commenced within a quality controlled factory environment.
> Lightweight frames arrived on site ready for immediate and quick install, saving hours of manual on site labour.
In the words of the contractor:
‘SBS made easy work of what was a challenging frame to begin with.’
‘The biggest key benefit is the prefab off site, coming very close second would have to be the fact of reducing human error on site by simply putting up a perfectly regenerated prefab frame like “LEGO” piece by piece.’
