CFS: A Dream For Residential Construction Projects

Cold formed steel is an innovative method of construction that can be used in a range of residential building applications.

From single-level homes to multi-story buildings and apartments, from affordable housing to luxurious dwellings, CFS is a fast and cost-effective solution that can optimize and enhance your construction projects.

Whatever the residential construction applications you specialize in, CFS technologies can do it better and more efficiently and offer endless possibilities to respond to the scope of any project.

Pre-engineered buildings (PEBs): A key part of construction landscape

By using a pre-engineered building your customers could take a fifth off the cost and two thirds off the time to get a new warehouse or processing plant up and running. With this on offer it’s become a popular choice, the world over.

When it comes to constructing a commercial or industrial building, two things stand out as being of top importance – that the building should be fit for purpose and that it’s safe for those who work there. With these things addressed, cost and delivery time are the major concerns faced by your clients – and that’s why pre-engineered buildings (PEBs) are proving to be the top choice for new warehouses and similar facilities. In fact, Technavio research shows the global PEB market will expand by a CAGR of nearly 12% to 2020.

How to Engineer Sub Floors & Walls that Reduce Sound Transfer

The occupants of a building want peace and quiet. How can you engineer subfloors and cold-formed steel (CFS) flooring joists to meet that demand?

The answer involves designing CFS floors with greater mass. You must also take into account joist spacing, resilient channels, vibration breaks, and a few other factors.

How webbed headers save time and money: Designing and building webbed headers with FRAMECAD


 When constructing a building it’s no secret that lintels are required when constructing openings in the building’s envelope. These are generally used to span the opening for structural load-bearing purpose, but in some occasions can be used for aesthetic purposes too.

Steel Lintels are generally made from pre-galvanised steel which is cut and roll-formed into the required shape. Predominantly a light weight material; steel lintels/headers are easier to handle on site or alternatively, are easily prefabricated into the wall panels.

World Steel Association Releases Report on Most Effective Materials for Mid-Rise Construction

The World Steel Association have recently published a report titled the Comparative Study Of Light Steel Framing, Hotrolled Steel, Concrete And Timber Residential Solutions – Structural Performance. This report aims to provide unbiased information and resources to all stakeholders involved in the construction sector. It details the strong and weak points of various structural solutions using different structural materials within the scope of low-rise (up to 4 storeys) multi-storey residential buildings. This has been conducted to help developers and building owners to make informed choices when selecting the structural material for their buildings.
