With its new swage, the TF550H becomes the best choice to construct mid-rise buildings

Discover the upgraded FRAMECAD TF550H with its newly designed swage which enables easier and more efficient assembly of 2mm or 14 gauge Cold Formed Steel (CFS). The TF550H is the ideal solution for mid-rise construction.

The TF550H System uses FRAMECAD® patented technology to provide a smart and lean design, engineering and fabrication process. The FRAMECAD® System integrates with BIM design software including REVIT and TEKLA. Intelligence and know-how built into FRAMECAD® Structure design software enables value engineered design to maximise both profitability and robust building techniques.

CFS: Ideal for both onsite and offsite construction

CFS: Ideal for both onsite and offsite construction

A core advantage of cold formed steel (CFS) is its adaptability and its suitability for the two main construction methodologies: onsite and offsite construction. In this post, we explore the differences between these two construction methodologies, and how the different approaches combine to demonstrate the superb versatility of CFS. 

CFS construction is a building process which is productive and efficient for both onsite and offsite construction. Let’s have a look at how the two methodologies are applicable to residential and non-residential building applications.

Why off-site construction is becoming an inevitable choice


Globally there’s an urgent need for rapid construction in order to keep up with the population boom. The UK is no exception to this and incentives are being put in place by the UK Government to address this issue.

In fact, as recently as October last year, UK Industry Minister Jesse Norman was quoted as saying:

“This Government is determined to support more housebuilding, more quickly and in the places people want to live. Given the launch of the £3 billion Home Building Fund, Mark Farmer’s important review in this vital sector is very timely. It makes a strong case for change in the industry, identifies areas where it needs to improve, and sets out areas for action. We will now carefully consider his recommendations.”

Shaping the healthcare industry using modular construction

 

The modular construction industry is varied and can be used for numerous applications such as schools, commercial construction, offices, retail establishments, healthcare, hospitals, military installations, dormitories, hotels, and remote telecommunications stations.

These uses reflect the highly repeatable nature of modular construction, that lends itself well to repeatable assembly line construction.

However, the healthcare is the sector which currently features the highest use of prefabricated modular constructions with the most notable predicted future growth.

In this blog, we talk about Forta Medical and the full business advantages of using LGS modular construction processes – showing just how much of a competitive advantage LGS modular construction can be.
