    Timber fabrication and steel construction work in harmony with MiTek Australia

    Timber fabrication plays an important role where steel construction is concerned, something Brendan Schneider, head detailer and estimator with licensed MiTek Australia  fabricator, Sunbury Wallframes & Trusses, recognises.

    “Just because a project may have a large steel component, it doesn’t mean there’s no room for timber fabrication. In fact, a lot of solutions that can be made from timber are simply not viable in steel from a cost or engineering aspect. In many instances the two can work in harmony, creating an extremely cost-effective and creative result,” says Schneider. 

    A good demonstration of how timber fabrication can benefit a construction can be found at a Super Clinic in Melton, about 30km north of the Melbourne CBD. This facility features an array of consulting, day-care, surgery, specialis, and waiting rooms, as well as post-operative wards, all housed under one roof. This example shows a unique marriage of steel and timber where over 200 low-pitch, Warren Trusses were required to make up the roof and needed to be fixed to the steel frame.
