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).

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.
