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.

CFS: A Dream For Residential Construction Projects

Cold formed steel is an innovative method of construction that can be used in a range of residential building applications.

From single-level homes to multi-story buildings and apartments, from affordable housing to luxurious dwellings, CFS is a fast and cost-effective solution that can optimize and enhance your construction projects.

Whatever the residential construction applications you specialize in, CFS technologies can do it better and more efficiently and offer endless possibilities to respond to the scope of any project.

Pre-engineered buildings (PEBs): A key part of construction landscape

By using a pre-engineered building your customers could take a fifth off the cost and two thirds off the time to get a new warehouse or processing plant up and running. With this on offer it’s become a popular choice, the world over.

When it comes to constructing a commercial or industrial building, two things stand out as being of top importance – that the building should be fit for purpose and that it’s safe for those who work there. With these things addressed, cost and delivery time are the major concerns faced by your clients – and that’s why pre-engineered buildings (PEBs) are proving to be the top choice for new warehouses and similar facilities. In fact, Technavio research shows the global PEB market will expand by a CAGR of nearly 12% to 2020.
