Time to Build Safe and Resilient Construction in Disaster Areas

There have been some significant natural disasters across the globe. These disasters have devastated communities beyond what they could have imagined. These communities now have the monumental effort to rebuild using a construction method that will be more resilient to these disasters in the future.

Can CFS Produce the Roof Trusses YOU Need for Your Projects?

Quality assurance, and the sourcing of cost-effective, superior materials, is a primary concern in any modern building project. One approach that can make a substantial difference in project quality and efficiency is to use roof trusses made with cold formed steel (CFS).

CFS roof trusses work well for projects of any common size or scope. They are a very durable and cost-effective alternative to wood trusses, helping building owners and contractors around the world complete projects to the satisfaction and high standards of everyone involved.

Future Proof the Cost of Termite Damage by Using Cold Formed Steel

Termites are a major source of risk for the global construction industry, costing billions of dollars in damage to both small and large-scale projects.

Termite infestations are considered a high probability in some of the largest population centers of the world, namely the US and Mexico, Africa, most of South America, southern Asia and Europe, and throughout Australia and the Pacific Islands.

Integrated Design & Engineering Software: CFS Construction Success

Every industry the world over has been transformed by technological advancement, underpinned by sophisticated software. The construction industry is no exception – perhaps our industry has been affected even more so than others.

Building methods such as cold formed steel (CFS) construction would not exist without software. But not all CFS manufacturing software is created equally.

In this article, we talk about FRAMECAD Structure software and the unique and valuable way it integrates with industry-standard BIM software. 

What You Need to Know About The History of Cold Formed Steel

Cold formed steel construction is often described as a “new” method of construction, and although the benefits of CFS construction have recently become more widely recognized, it’s valuable for construction firms to know that the method itself has much older origins than most people are aware of.

In fact, the set of practices that make up CFS construction have been in a global process of development and evolution for well over 150 years.

In this blog, we talk about the long-established roots of CFS construction methods, and its progression into the methods that have proven themselves to be globally trusted and relied upon.
