"The speed of change in the world demands a new approach to construction. Population growth and changing environmental, political and social attitudes are causing many landowners, developers and builders to move away from traditional methods. At FRAMECAD, we look towards modern approaches to construction and for more than 30 years, we have been so excited about innovation in Cold Formed Steel construction to meet these needs."
Mark Taylor, Founder and CEO, FRAMECAD
The impact of the skilled construction labor shortage has had a sustained and harmful effect on the construction industry since the worldwide recession (2007 - 2011), when approximately 2 million construction workers were made unemployed around the world. This represented a higher drop in global unemployment than for any other industry.
Since the recession, the construction industry has never been able to recover from the loss of skilled labor and has been characterized by a struggle to fulfill the many construction jobs that are becoming more readily available.

FRAMECAD is delighted to present you the latest DOUGLASS COLONY project, Mariposa VII, a 7-storey multi-family building in Colorado, USA. Mariposa VII was completed in 1/4 of the time.
The 7-storey multi-family building was fabricated at Douglass Colony's headquarters using the FRAMECAD System and shipped directly to the jobsite where the building was erected in a total of 40 working days.
Douglass Colony supplied the pre-panelized metal stud wall framing and offered a turn-key solution with diversified builders as the contracted drywaller. Watch the speed of construction in the video below.
