THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Alleviate cost and program restraints by guaranteeing a seamless installation process for the top level framing structure.


> Through the tender process, Cortek and Figurehead worked together to identify any areas of concern and ensured that they were correctly designed.

> 3D modelling and consultant workshops with Cortek’s engineering department assisted in identifying and mitigating any risks of interfacing lightweight steel with adjoining building components.

> Over the full shop drawing, fabrication and installation process, we saved roughly 2 weeks on our construction target dates.

> The use of the steel framing system also had positive cost implications, with the supply and install providing beneficial savings.
