“I’d like to take the opportunity to thank SBS on your delivery sequences and the quality of the frames, it’s been great dealing with a company that delivers on its commitments.” Stephen C. – Liberty Builders
THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Reduce the build time and deliver a three level townhouse development on a tight site
THE SBS STEEL SOLUTION /
> The original plans were redesigned by SBS Group to substitute a significant amount of structural steel, saving an estimated 4-6 weeks on the structural element of the build.
> The precision of framing made from TRUECORE® steel meant that once the frames were in, there was no need to spend lengthy time on site fixing up twisted and warped timber walls.
> With webs in the floor joists and precut holes in the studs and noggins, it was easier to pass cables and services through to where they were needed.
> As it was a tight site, even the larger frames were light enough to be handled by two people on site without cranage.
