Project Overview
  • Project Riva Apartments

  • Builder Probuild Constructions

  • Architect Rothe Lowman

  • Location Hawthorn, Victoria

  • Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / External Framing (Box Pop-outs & Fins)

Riva Apartments was originally designed with traditional structural steel construction.  As the design process eventuated,  Probuild Constructions sought alternatives to utilise lightweight structural cold formed framing. With a  long standing relationship, SBS Group were requested to provide economical methods of construction. After the scope was reviewed, SBS and Probuild’s partnered sub-contractor, worked together to achieve effective smarter solutions. Expensive and on site time consuming steel was replaced with SBS Smart Frame technology, engineered and designed for simple and quick installation.  SBS framing was shop detailed, pre-fabricated and delivered. Additional benefits included the direct fix of modwood cladding, eliminating top hats.
