THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / As the design of the roof truss shapes most likely could not have been fabricated from timber, an accurate, reliable and easy to install steel frame system was required.


> The in-house design and construct approach for the top floor and roof truss framing ensured a controlled LGS alternative, removing unnecessary structural steel from the design.

> Seeing the complete structure in a fly through 3D model greatly assisted with foreseeing some design shortfalls. Some additions and amendments were made to the design early on and implemented seamlessly on site.

> 3D modelling enabled Cortek to determine where additional support for roofing was required and how the draining of the roof will work.

> Frames were delivered to site pre-assembled and erected in-situ quickly.
