  • Architect Peddle Thorp

  • Location Hawthorn, Victoria

  • Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / Pre-Fabricated External Framing (Window Hood Framing)

Boutique living in Hawthorn starts with One Seven Riversdale. With stunning views and striking architectural design, the apartments have been described as ‘one of a kind.’

The successful builder again turned to SBS Group for a pre-fabricated solution for the external window hood frames, recognising the ease of off-site manufacture where site access is difficult. The SBS design team set themselves to create a feasible alternative. Engineered window hood frames were incorporated into the wall, enabling the framing to be pre-clad on the front and lifted in as one module. Openings were created for the window to fix to for quicker installation. SBS also supplied and framed part of the external wall to take all the required engineering loads. By applying Smart Frame technology, SBS reversed conventional construction methods with a proven solution, saving time and improving  the output for both the builder and contractor using an innovative streamlined approach.
