THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Create a smart steel multi-level framing solution for the new coastal towns new aged care facility.


> Using BHP cold formed Truecore material, wall framing and roof trusses were pre-fabricated for planned erection once on site.

> By applying our BUILD SMARTER system, many smarter outcomes were achieved. This included deleting unnecessary structural steel from the design, whilst fabricating the acoustic double walls into one wall, thus providing a quick and ready solution. Doors and windows were also easily incorporated into the pre-fabricated framing design.

> The engineered design also incorporated the pre-fabrication of the complex roof pitched junctions and long span trusses.

> As steel does not rot, twist or shrink, it isn’t susceptible to the destroying termite damage. Other benefits included decreasing the long term building maintenance required as compared with traditional timber alternatives.
