Newcastle Steel Frames is Transforming Construction with Steel Framing


Newcastle Steel Frames and Trusses are a family-owned business and have been a prominent player in the construction industry for the past 23 years.  They Specialize in supplying floor systems, steel frames and trusses to owner builders as well as to some of Australia's largest residential and commercial builders across New South Wales. The team stand out as industry experts with their extensive knowledge and experience in construction which results in customer loyalty. 

The construction industry demands precision, durability, and efficiency. Traditional materials like timber, while widely used, pose challenges such as susceptibility to termites, fire risk, and instability. Newcastle Steel Frames and Trusses recognized the need to provide a superior alternative and found the solution in steel framing (cold formed steel, CFS). 

The process begins with an initial estimation, followed by a thorough examination of design constraints in collaboration with the detailing team. The job is then sent through for review before being passed over to the production team. 

Newcastle Steel Frames and Truss's partnership with FRAMECAD spans over a decade and the reliability and service of the FRAMECAD system and software has been integral to the company's operations. General Manager, Tim Robertson said, “we started with one FRAMECAD system about 10 years ago, since then we've grown to have five.”  

Tim acknowledges the importance of technology and anticipates a significant shift in the market in the next five years. He envisages steel framing taking a more substantial share, sidelining traditional materials like timber.
