Project Overview

Project The Caulfield
Builder Element Five
Architect Rothe Lowman
Location Caulfield North, Victoria

THE PROJECT CHALLENGE / Working alongside the cladding contractor, Cortek Framing by SBS Group was engaged to design and manufacturer external modular pod framing for the apartment project.


> Using cold formed light gauge steel, the Cortek Framing by SBS Group Smart Frames were fabricated within a quality controlled factory environment and delivered direct to site for installation.

> With all curves and dimensions calculated off site, the cladding was pre-curved, speeding up the overall installation process.

> The pods were manufactured as full face units and once on site, were simply lifted in using engineered crane hooks, designed and supplied by Cortek Framing by SBS Group.

> The pre-fabricated system also allowed the window contractor to pre-measure their windows earlier for a longer lead time. The Caulfield is a another perfect  example of time, labour and cost saving advantages of pre-fabrication
