Watch the FRAMECAD Structure webinar recording today

FRAMECAD® Structure is a comprehensive detailing and design software package with advanced computer-aided engineering capabilities. 

This fast, yet accurate software delivers real time engineering calculations as the designs are created,and can produce over 25,000 calculations per square meter of roof and walls in seconds; a task which would take days, or potentially weeks, if done manually.

With the webinar recording, you will be able to learn all about FRAMECAD Structure with a full demonstration on how to detail and engineer a G+1 residential project using the software.

Watch the construction of a Cold Formed Steel single storey residential building.

This single storey dwelling was completed with the FRAMECAD System. This video demonstrates all the steps followed to successfully complete this residential building.

This 358m2 single-storeyhouse is located on a 3037m2 piece of land and offers:

  • Four bedrooms
  • A study
  • A veranda
  • A double garage

After only 48 hours of detailing, the project was fully designed, engineered and compliant with the local design code.

Watch the evolution of the project from beginning to end.

The main challenge of this construction was the complexity of the veranda roof design with overhangs, different roof heights and the main roof structure which did not line up with the veranda roof.

Mariposa VII, a 7 storey multi-family project by DOUGLASS COLONY completed in 1/4 of the time

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.

Video: LGS + Earthquake testing

You may have wondered how LGS framing copes in an earthquake, and now thanks to recent seismic testing we were shown just how impressively it does respond.

In the video below, we show you how NASH NZ (National Association of Steel-framed Housing NZ) commissioned full-scale table shaking tests to investigate how brick veneer on LGS framing responds during seismic activity of varying strengths. The tests were conducted at the University of Melbourne on a test house developed to model the behavior of a real home in an earthquake.

Watch the video below to see for yourself just how well LGS framing responds during earthquake testing and how suitable it is for use in seismic regions.

(For a full explanation of the test environment, watch from the beginning of the video. To jump ahead to the shaking, skip to 3.20mins. For conclusions, skip to 5.20mins)
