Site Visit 1: This is a two storey office block being constructed on the corner of the Nepean Highway and Main Road Mornington.It is a steel, glass and brick construction with alucabond as a facing material.

This photo shows the beams with C purlins above and cross bracing. Above the purlins is the safety mesh which has the added purpose of holding in the insulation and sisalation. Alucabond will cover the steel facade and windows will attach to its underside.

The ceiling joists between the ground and first floor are bolted onto a sleeve of the UB. Ceiling battens run in a grid below the beam and joists

In the section where there is no second storey, a Rondo suspended ceiling grid system has been used.
