Riviere Apartments; an impressive multi-storey apartment complex proved challenging with the facade changing profiles and position on a tight building site.

With the cladding contractor and builder, SBS redeveloped a pre-fabricated and pre-clad off site solution. Framing modules were simply craned into position with a simple interlocking flashing system, creating water tight joints. What was originally detailed as a complex structural steel design was replaced with a superior, engineered and detailed cold formed clinch riveted system, creating significant time savings and greater productivity.

Project deadlines were met on a tight construction program due to off site pre-fabrication.
