Why is Light Gauge Steel the top choice for top levels for SBS Group

For multi-level buildings, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that timber, concrete, and hot-rolled steel aren’t always the best options – especially when it comes to the top floor. That’s why so many developers are now looking for ways to save on time, labour, and costs during the construction process.

FRAMECAD by Douglass Colony: Hyatt Place Westminster, USA

This project is the Hyatt Place Westminster in Colorado in USA. It is a 6-level, 156-room hotel. All 644 wall panels for this project were erected in just 17 working days using a 6-man crew (this project included only wall panel erection - no floor install, or concrete work).


The benefits of FRAMECAD panelized metal stud framing include:
- Total design flexibility
- 1 & 2 hour UL assemblies
- Simplified field erection
- Complete turn-key solution
- Construction in ¼ of the time

Douglass Colony is the exclusive FRAMECAD manufacturer for the Rocky Mountain Region.

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.
