SBS Group designed and manufactured wall and roof truss framing for the new meeting house constructed at the Church of Latter Day Saints in Werribee, Victoria.

Designed by dwp architects and built by Melbcon, the project used SBS Smart Frame for the prefabricated wall and roof truss framing. SBS Group was engaged to design, manufacture and deliver wall and roof truss framing utilising their build smarter cold formed steel systems.

The use of timber in a similar application would require planing or packing of the frames to ensure straight and accurate results. Since steel does not rot, twist or shrink, all framing was prefabricated square, true and uniform in size, allowing for simple installation.

SBS’ lightweight frames accommodated the large long span trusses. SBS also designed and shop detailed solutions to integrate with specific window and door systems in a streamlined installation.

The system was engineered to 1507 certification with Bluescope’s Truecore steel and came with the assurance of the manufacturer’s 50-year warranty.
