With universities commonly setting out the standards in advanced architectural features, the new Melbourne School of Design, UOM Project was of no exception. One prominent feature of the development was the striking tessellated lecture theatre ceiling. The ceiling feature demanded an off site, accurate, pre-fabricated and ready to install solution. With its design and construct capabilities, SBS Group were requested to provide smarter solutions. After several design meetings, prototypes were submitted for approval and production commenced. As various styles of raking ceiling panels were manufactured, hidden services and recessed neon lighting were incorporated. The result was a quick and effective installation, whilst delivering a productive alternative for the builder.
