The partnership between FRAMECAD and Intellisteel is poised to disrupt the construction industry in the U.S. for years to come.

Together, these two innovative companies make construction faster, more efficient and more cost-effective.

The FRAMECAD System is a modern method of construction offering a faster way to design and build strong, durable Cold Formed Steel (CFS) frame buildings easily and efficiently, anywhere in the world.

Intellisteel has taken this solution to another level, introducing a fully mobile, on-site steel frame factory that incorporates the FRAMECAD System into its advanced manufacturing process.

This process eliminates the risk and cost of freight, improves scheduling and increases reliability on-site. It also creates computerized precision-formed metal studs and tracks to a millimetre tolerance, reducing the need for skilled labour. It’s impossible for traditional framing to match the speed of this production method for walls, trusses and joists, or for an entire superstructure.

This single storey dwelling was completed with the FRAMECAD System. This video demonstrates all the steps followed to successfully complete this residential building.

This 358m2 single-storeyhouse is located on a 3037m2 piece of land and offers:

  • Four bedrooms
  • A study
  • A veranda
  • A double garage

After only 48 hours of detailing, the project was fully designed, engineered and compliant with the local design code.

Watch the evolution of the project from beginning to end.

The main challenge of this construction was the complexity of the veranda roof design with overhangs, different roof heights and the main roof structure which did not line up with the veranda roof.
