The Clarindale Apartments, designed and built by Ausco Group features light gauge steel framing from SBS Group, replacing the original timber and structural steel design.

Located in Oakleigh South, Victoria, The Clarindale Apartments project uses prefabricated SBS Smart Frame for the top level wall and roof truss framing.

SBS Group coordinated with the builder and onsite teams to detail, fabricate and deliver wall and roof truss framing. The system was fully customised to suit the building requirements and specifications.

Nick, a senior project manager at Ausco Group said, “We engaged SBS Group for the design and supply of cold rolled steel roof 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 was considered.

“SBS’ 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 was minimised. This allowed the crane to be used for other activities.

“SBS utilised their engineers as required for field work and checking of installation, which also assisted in maintaining our quality processes.

“We appreciate SBS’ work in helping make this project successful.”
