Sky's the limit when using light steel frame technology.
With it's light weight properties and flexible design potential, extending an existing structure has never been easier. Below we'll explore some of the benefits of using light-weight steel as a medium to construct seamless extensions to a variety of buildings.
One of the best uses for light-weight steel is in roofing. This material can be designed and manufactured to perfectly replace any traditional wooden roof on an existing structure during extensions/renovations. Some of the reasons for using light-weight steel as a roofing solution include improvement of thermal insulation, replacement of deteriorated wooden beams and to overcome leakage problems.

Less weight, less problems
Given it's light-weight properties, our steel frame technology is perfectly suited for extensions of pre-existing structures. Load baring issues that could sometimes result in expensive alterations and foundation prep in conventional building materials is no longer an issue when using our light-weight steel. Below is an example of a 3rd story extension project implementing our light steel frame as the main building material.
Design accuracy & aesthetics
Our light steel frame materials arrive on site as prefabricated elements meaning that construction time is greatly reduced. We can also guarantee accuracy down to the nearest millimeter after assembly because the steel frames are software-designed. This means the client is not only protected against alignment issues during the build but is also guaranteed a picture-perfect finish upon completion.
