Location Glen Iris, Victoria
Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / Pre-Fabricated Top Level Wall and Roof Truss, Balustrade and External Feature Framing
If the criteria is a time-saving, labour-saving and cost-saving construction method, then pre-fabrication is the answer.
Using the Build Smarter system, the SBS Group design and estimating team evaluated the project scope, identifying savings across the top level wall and roof trusses, balustrades and feature boxes. Framing was shop detailed, 3D modelled, engineered and manufactured using BHP Truecore light gauge steel for on site time, labour and cost savings. Framing was then delivered direct to site for installation.
Replacing traditional structural steel and timber, SBS Smart Frames were fabricated straight and true for a rust, termite and rot resistant solution.
With a high strength to weight ratio, the use of cold formed steel framing also contributed towards reducing the overall floor load.
SBS Smart Frame…smarter alternatives to conventional construction methods.
