What should you look for in a CFS/LGS building solutions partner?

There are many machine manufacturers who will sell you roll-forming machines, but to truly get all the benefits that cold formed steel (CFS) construction can offer, you need to choose a partner who can provide an end-to-end construction system with advanced technology.

Whether you’re considering a CFS system (also known as light gauge steel or LGS) for a specific project or thinking of establishing a CFS manufacturing or construction business, getting support from the right partner is a vital strategy to maximize project ROI and ensure sustainable business success.

The following are 4 key differentiating factors that separate a true CFS building solutions partner from a CFS/LGS roll-forming machine seller.

A construction boom is coming. How to future proof your business

In this blog post, we take a brief look at what the current COVID-19 market conditions mean for construction demand, and how you can use FRAMECAD’s latest equipment releases and updates to succeed in times of uncertainty and, dare we say it, growth.

The demand for construction is not letting up. In fact, some experts are predicting a post-Coronavirus construction boom. Which is great news for the industry. But are you ready to use this to your advantage? During times of growth, uncertainty or change, the most successful businesses are those who adapt to meet the demands of the market.

Currently markets are asking for faster construction, particularly to support the healthcare sector and related industries. The ability to design and manufacture quickly and efficiently is key to your continued success. But as recent events have shown, these demands could change. A re-focus on hotel, multi-family, or commercial projects, in addition to medical-focused modular and pod solutions could be just around the corner.

The key to future success is ensuring your business is future-proofed to meet the coming market demand, whatever that looks like.

Collaboration successfully pushes limits of CFS innovation for FrameTech

When FrameTech Systems outgrew their existing manufacturing facility, they knew it was time for a bigger, more flexible space. As experts in cold formed steel (CFS) construction, they also knew exactly which method they would use to bring that space to life. So how did their award-winning CFS facility come to fruition?

Pushing the limits of CFS

The use and demands of this kind of facility – a large, flexible workshop with 60-foot clear spans, 25-foot bays, 20-foot height to truss bearing and the option to add future overhead doors and production bays – typically leads to the selection of a pre-engineered building (PEB).
