Project Mosaica Apartments
Builder Element Five
Architect Rothe Lowman
Location Maribyrnong, Victoria
Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / Pre-Fabricated Top Level Wall and Roof Truss Framing
At 6 levels, the Rothe Lowman designed Mosaica Apartments project replaced traditional structural steel and timber construction with SBS Smart Frame top level wall and roof truss systems.
Independent structural steel, timber walls and roof truss trades were combined into one coordinated system.
The high strength engineered wall frames were manufactured with CNC technology using Truecore light gauge steel. With the ability to carry plant loads and with services easily incorporated, frames were delivered to site for immediate and fast erection.
Packing or straightening of walls for plasterboard was no longer required with framing manufactured to true and accurate site specifications.
The benefits of an SBS steel framing system also includes resistance to rot and termite damage.
