Project Overview

Project Lucia Apartments
Builder L U Simon Builders
Architect Elenberg Fraser
Location South Yarra, Melbourne

THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / The Lucia Apartments lobby is above and beyond a standard typical entrance. Featuring complex patterned designs, it was not only a challenge to construct, it was also a challenge to achieve and maximise productivity.


>Originally detailed in heavy, tedious and expensive structural steel, the SBS design team recommended an alternative system using Cortek Framing by SBS Group Ultra Frame technology creating an innovative time saving solution produced beneficial results for the builder.

> Framing was engineered, shop detailed and pre-fabricated into sections using light gauge steel while coordinating integrated services and fabricating to site specifications.  Framing was delivered in four sections including the coffer to enable an easy and safe installation process, allowing for cladding to be directly fixed.

> What was originally considered a challenging build, Cortek Framing by SBS Group Ultra Frame was made possible with a superior lightweight solution.
