Project Melbourne Park Admin & Media Building
Location Melbourne, Victoria
Framing Used SBS Ultra Frame / Complex Architectural Framing
Stage 2 of Melbourne Park’s redevelopment project featured the construction of a new Admin and Media Building; brand new headquarters for Tennis Australia and Melbourne and Olympic Park’s Trust.
In what was a challenging project, the benefits of off site manufacture were clearly realised with a pre-fabricated lightweight solution adopted for the eyebrow cantilevered truss facade.
Replacing the proposed structural steel design, SBS Ultra Frame technology was the answer to the buildings unique lightweight structure, satisfying the project engineers and cantilever requirements.
Designed, shop detailed, engineered and manufactured by SBS Group, the system supported the direct fix of cladding materials prior to installation and were craned into position by custom designed brackets. Top hats and infill purlins were no longer required, resulting in a quicker, easier and efficient installation process.
Framing modules were manufactured to site specifications for all elevations and delivered to site as pre-clad, suiting the project schedule.
