Overview of Sustainable Construction

Build an Environment with Sustainable Construction


The construction industry as a whole has a responsibility to contribute to the creation of a world that will improve the lives of future generations and make use of environmentally friendly construction methods.

At FRAMECAD, we understand the significance of sustainable construction, especially in the current landscape where urbanization is at a historic peak, driving up construction demand. Our modern construction method using cold formed steel (CFS) not only enables accelerated construction that requires less labor but also produces less material waste at the same time. It’s safe to say we’re passionate about creating a future for construction that’s more efficient and has less impact on the environment.

The construction industry worldwide demands certified and compliant products. Building industry experts and government authorities in many regions around the world have collaborated to develop common standards for building products and construction techniques. Construction standards have now become so important that in many countries, it is not possible to build with products that have not been independently tested and verified and carry a recognized certification mark or label.

Accélérez la construction de bâtiments de hauteur moyenne à l'aide d'acier formé à froid

C'est une idée fausse commune que seuls les bâtiments de faible hauteur jusqu'à deux ou trois étages peuvent être construits avec de l'acier formé à froid (CFS). Beaucoup pensent également que le CFS est limité aux petites applications de charpente intérieures ou extérieures non essentielles. Mais cela est totalement faux. L'intégrité structurelle de la charpente CFS convient également aux bâtiments à étages multiples.
