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.
The construction industry as a whole has a responsibility to contribute to the creation of a world that will improve the lives of future generations and make use of environmentally friendly construction methods.
At FRAMECAD, we understand the significance of sustainable construction, especially in the current landscape where urbanization is at a historic peak, driving up construction demand. Our modern construction method using cold formed steel (CFS) not only enables accelerated construction that requires less labor but also produces less material waste at the same time. It’s safe to say we’re passionate about creating a future for construction that’s more efficient and has less impact on the environment.
The safer, faster, and more sustainable way of building.
The capabilities and benefits of building with steel have surpassed those of timber. Steel framing is a dimensionally stable product that does not absorb moisture does not rot nor harbour mould or mildew giving you better quality and healthier homes. With FRAMECAD’s complete design and manufacturing solution, any architectural design can be designed in steel and existing timber designs can easily be converted into steel framing plans.
As the price of wood rises, more and more builders are considering cold formed steel (CFS) as an alternative to lumber.
People are naturally demanding more living space following the Covid lockdowns, after spending so much time living on top of each other. During the lockdowns the retail market saw a huge increase in demand for DIY materials, as home improvement projects rocketed worldwide. This contributed to the current shortages we are experiencing in lumber.
