THE PROJECT CHALLENGE /
Oxley Christian College in Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs is a co-educational school for early years though to Year 12. In 2020, Oxley started a new construction project to add new Junior and Middle School learning buildings to the already impressive campus. SBS Group was engaged by the appointed builder to provide the steel framing solution for the school’s new facilities.
THE SBS SOLUTION /
> With the Junior School building completed in June 2021 and construction quickly commencing on the Middle School building, the builder opted for prefabricated steel frames to make for a quick installation process.
> SBS Group supplied prefabricated 150mm light gauge steel frames that were a requirement for the project.
> The frames were 3D modelled, fabricated and delivered to site and with Oxley Christian College and SBS Group located just minutes from each other, there were substantial freight savings for the client.
> Matt, Project Manager from BP Building Concepts said “Prefab framing was much quicker to install than the traditional stick build method” and would use SBS Group again for future projects.
