Market Street Offices – South Melbourne

Project Overview
  • Project Market Street Offices – South Melbourne

  • Builder Cobild

  • Architect Peter Harvey and Company

  • Location South Melbourne, Victoria

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

With a position in the heart of South Melbourne, the builder was faced with a tight construction site for the five storey Market Street Office project.


This was an ideal opportunity to apply SBS Smart Frame technology. Utilising light gauge steel, SBS Group created an alternative pre-fabricated balustrade framing system, deleting unnecessary structural steel for many on site advantages. This included removing the requirement for steel posts and top rails, infill framing and reducing overall on site time. Longer frame sizes were delivered for immediate installation, making it easy and efficient for the cladding contractors to direct fix to the framing. This eliminated the normal crane time associated with traditional structural steel as it was no longer required.
