Lucia Apartments

Project Overview
  • Project Lucia Apartments

  • Builder L U Simon Builders

  • Architect Elenberg Fraser

  • Location South Yarra, Victoria

  • Framing Used SBS Ultra Frame / Complex Architectural Framing

The Lucia Apartments lobby is above and beyond a standard typical entrance. Featuring complex patterned designs, it was not only a challenge to construct, it was also a challenge to achieve and maximise productivity.


Originally detailed in heavy, tedious and expensive structural steel, the SBS design team recommended an alternative system using SBS Ultra Frame technology. Creating an innovative time saving solution produced beneficial results for the builder. Framing was engineered, shop detailed and pre-fabricated into sections using light gauge steel while coordinating integrated services and fabricating to site specifications.  Framing was delivered in four sections including the coffer to enable an easy and safe installation process, allowing for cladding to be directly fixed.


What was originally considered a challenging build, SBS Ultra Frame made possible with a superior lightweight solution.
