As the world around us evolves, so must our building systems and processes.
That’s why we wrote our new eBook, "The Future of Construction – The Case For Building With Cold Formed Steel".
Light Gauge Steel (LGS) also known as Cold Formed Steel (CFS), is revolutionising the way buildings are created.
There are many reasons why attitudes are changing towards how our global communities are built – social, political economical and environmental forces, as well as the growing scarcity and expense of skilled-labour forces which are driving a shift away from traditional methods of construction, in almost every market.
FRAMECAD is a global leader in steel construction, with a network of relationships that incorporates industry leaders, communities and governments around the world.
Over many years in the industry, FRAMECAD has witnessed a number of key trends that are reshaping the future of construction.
Over the course of the eBook, we examine how different trends are affecting the construction industry worldwide, including:
- Rapid urbanisation
- Demand for sustainable, green buildings
- Housing availability and affordability
- Environmental events are impacting building design & material selection
- Political and economic influences
We look at each of these factors in-depth and give practical, real-world examples of how LGS is providing a solution for each.
We also explore the advantages of steel structures for different building applications, locations and climatic areas as well as reasons why LGS is superior to traditional construction materials, including:
- Speed of construction
- Reduced need for highly skilled labour
- Versatility of design
- Faster return on investment
- LGS construction creates less waste & is environmentally, a better building choice
- Lends itself to offsite construction
In today’s modern construction environment, traditional methods are struggling to keep up with demand. Population growth, changing environmental conditions, political influences and social attitudes are causing many landowners, developers and builders to move away from traditional building methods which cannot meet demand and look towards modern methods of construction such as LGS to deliver faster, cost effective and more desirable buildings.
