We saved at least half the time by pre-fabricating and erecting on site – approximately 4-6 week saving…All up we have been very happy with the SBS team and how it has gone together.

Very happy with the framing to date, everything has gone together really well on site, and the framing is millimetre perfect.
By using the SBS system, we estimate that we have saved approximately 2 months of construction programme and associated preliminaries.
SBS steel framing proved to demonstrate a number of advantages in which were seen throughout the entire build. Onsite, and in comparison, to using conventional concrete structure or timber frames, SBS provided significant time saving in the project construction. Logistically, SBS coordination of delivering frames and on-site handlings also worked in the projects advantage.
Advantages were not only limited to on-site construction, we found that in the design stage of the project SBS shop drawings were able to be coordinated with the likes of windows and joinery shop drawings to eliminate design clashes.
Through the tender process, SBS and Figurehead worked together to identify any areas of concern and ensured that they were correctly designed in order to guarantee installation was a seamless process.
3D modelling and consultant workshops with SBS’s engineering department assisted in identifying and mitigating any risks of interfacing lightweight steel with adjoining building components.
Over the full shop drawing, fabrication and installation process we saved roughly 2 weeks on our construction target dates.
The use of the steel framing system also had positive cost implications, with the supply and install providing beneficial savings.

We engaged SBS Group for the design and supply of cold rolled roof steel framing and trusses at our Centre Road project, consisting of 127 apartments.
SBS designed and modelled the roof steel componentry in 3D and cooperated with our detailer, allowing integration within the same model of the hot rolled steel and concrete elements to ensure that geometry was checked and structural integration with all elements were considered.
SBS’s design also achieved fire compliance without the need for an alternative design being proposed to MFB and building surveyor, which assisted our building permit process.
Utilising cold rolled also meant that crane time for these works were minimised with load in only being required, and the rest handled manually. This allowed the crane to be used for other activities and other work faces in conjunction.
SBS utilised their engineer as required for field work and checking of installation which also assisted in maintaining our quality processes.
We appreciate all SBS’s work in helping make this project successful.

‘We always use the Smart Hob – they are so much faster. Just pin them down and it’s done. On this job the PT guys filled the hobs with liquid structural grout which was even faster because we didn’t have to worry about coming back and filling them…Only needed 2 guys to pin them to the concrete, they are very easy to get right…Always good using preformed hobs. All you need to do is put the pins in, the reo bars in and fill it. It’s a really simple system that saves heaps of time.’

‘When presented with the challenge of building an architectural residence at the Moonah Links Golf Course, Matthew Hannaford, the builder, recommended to the owner and architect that the best solution to solve all the issues with structural integrity and stability during construction and the best way to accommodate the requirements of the design was to give serious consideration to steel framing. Matthew’s previous experience with commercial structures using SBS engineered design gave him the confidence to “handball” the challenge to the design people at SBS. The result has been spectacular. Steel framing gave the builder the flexibility to cope with the design challenges and provide the ease of construction in an otherwise difficult situation and exposed site.’

‘Prior to commencing structure works at 2-4 Station St Caulfield our client was faced with a common problem in today’s construction industry. “ A very tight construction program “ Fortunately SBS Group was there to help us cater to our clients needs, they recommended we use SBS Smart Hob. The result was far beyond our expectations, it enabled our company to hand over floors much sooner, shaving 8 days of a very tight construction program. It also enabled us to reduce our costs by 50% purely by allocating less labour to the tasks & quicker installation times. We were amazed at how quick and easy the product is to install. All our sites are now running faster than ever thanks to this fantastic product.’
