THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Reduce the build time and deliver a three level townhouse development on a tight site


> The original plans were redesigned by Cortek to substitute a significant amount of structural steel, saving an estimated 4-6 weeks on the structural element of the build.

> The precision of framing made from TRUECORE® steel meant that once the frames were in, there was no need to spend lengthy time on site fixing up twisted and warped timber walls.

> With webs in the floor joists and precut holes in the studs and noggins, it was easier to pass cables and services through to where they were needed.

> As it was a tight site, even the larger frames were light enough to be handled by two people on site without cranage.

“I’d like to take the opportunity to thank Cortek Framing by SBS Group on your delivery sequences and the quality of the frames, it’s been great dealing with a company that delivers on its commitments.” Stephen C. – Liberty Builders
