CFS cost savings go above and beyond simply the cost of framing alone

Posted by FRAMECAD on Jan 11, 2018 9:22:25 AM

Chances are that when you’ve heard cold-formed steel (CFS) construction methods described, that cost savings have been heavily emphasised as a major advantage.

What you might not be so aware of is just where these cost savings lie and how a considerable amount of these savings can be found above and beyond simply the cost of the CFS framing alone.

The major CFS cost savings are cleverly explained in an infographic designed by, one of the pre-eminent CFS knowledge bases in North America.

Earthquakes don’t kill, poorly designed and constructed buildings do

Posted by FRAMECAD on Oct 19, 2017 11:03:00 AM

When an earthquake strikes, poorly designed and constructed buildings are a major contributing factor to the eventual size and scope of the catastrophe. In many ways, it can be said that it’s not earthquakes that cause human injury and loss of life, but rather it’s buildings that are designed and built with poor strength and resilience.

In this post, we’re going to explore how the best way to save lives in areas of high seismic activity is in fact to design structures that can withstand serious shakes, with the ideal solution being a Cold Formed Steel construction method.

CFS: Ideal for both onsite and offsite construction

CFS: Ideal for both onsite and offsite construction

A core advantage of cold formed steel (CFS) is its adaptability and its suitability for the two main construction methodologies: onsite and offsite construction. In this post, we explore the differences between these two construction methodologies, and how the different approaches combine to demonstrate the superb versatility of CFS. 

CFS construction is a building process which is productive and efficient for both onsite and offsite construction. Let’s have a look at how the two methodologies are applicable to residential and non-residential building applications.
