  • Builder Project Group

  • Architect DO Architects

  • Location Blackburn, Victoria

  • Framing Used SBS Smart Frame / Pre-Fabricated External Balustrade, Box Truss, Fin and Canopy Framing

At four levels high, Vela Blackburn is a boutique apartment project with a cutting edge design.


SBS Group was awarded the contract to design and pre-fabricate external balustrade, box truss, fin and canopy framing.


The lightweight frames were manufactured off site into large modules. The cladding materials were then directly fixed once installed. No straightening of structural steel was required, speeding up the on site installation process.


The overall amount of structural steel was also reduced by using the SBS Smart Frame systems.
