The construction industry continues to move from strength to strength. But following the pandemic and a new way of life, the construction industry has experienced a surge across the world. Contractors and builders are in high demand due to previously stalled projects coming back to life in a thriving market.
A key decision with any construction project is choosing between asteel and wood framing structure. Here’s all the data you need to compare steel vs wood framing to make sound decisions for your next construction project.
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.
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.
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.
