Lumber challenges: time for the construction industry to consider alternative

As the price of wood rises, more and more builders are considering cold formed steel (CFS) as an alternative to lumber.

People are naturally demanding more living space following the Covid lockdowns, after spending so much time living on top of each other. During the lockdowns the retail market saw a huge increase in demand for DIY materials, as home improvement projects rocketed worldwide. This contributed to the current shortages we are experiencing in lumber.

F450iT: Solving the challenges of mid-rise construction with greater speed, versatility & precision

In many of our blog posts, we show how quickly mid-rise buildings can be constructed using cold formed steel (CFS). CFS construction directly addresses many of the issues encountered by owners, developers and other stakeholders engaged in building mid-rise projects.

The precision of CFS is important in the construction of mid-rise buildings as even the smallest of inaccuracies can cause undulation in the framing as the building grows taller.

 “With everything prefabricated to millimetric precision, there’s no need to cut and adjust on site – the cold formed steel arrives ready to go.”
