THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / The new Bunurong Memorial Park has transformed a traditional memorial park into a contemporary and inspiring community parkland. The Sanctuary – a reflection space partially suspended over the lake, was detailed with a sweeping ceiling and boasts stunning views.


> The Cortek Framing by SBS Group design team worked closely with the plastering contractor to challenge the status quo of time-consuming on site construction with pre-fabrication alternatives.

> The final solution resulted in replacing the structural steel and secondary ceiling with lightweight 3D curved framing modules. Accurate and precise shop detailing and fabrication was undertaken in house with frames manufactured into manageable units and delivered to site for an quick and easy simple installation. The rigid clinch riveted design proved superior to the originally documented furring channel system, removing the guesswork out of forming the ceiling traditionally on site. Other added benefits enabled the contractor to direct fix the linings to the framing.
