Light steel frame is the single most important material in our building process, but what exactly is it?
Building with light steel frame is a relatively new concept in Southern Africa and indeed the world. With the conventional 'bricks & mortar' method of construction still prevailing, we feel it is time to shine some light on light steel frame technology.
From the ground up
Unlike traditional building methods light steel frame is less reliant on foundation preparation and weight baring restrictions that is often an issue when using brick and/or cement. Because of it's light weight properties it is an ideal solution for house extensions, building on pre-existing structures and building on less than desirable geological conditions. Not only does this mean you'll save a lot of time during construction but there will be considerable cost saving during the process.
Prefabrication & Precision
Our buildings are software-designed resulting in near perfect angles in the final build. This is not only an aesthetically pleasing feature but also safe guards the building from future structural faults and complications during construction.
The various elements and modules of a light steel frame building arrive on site prefabricated meaning our skilled team is able to assemble the building in much less time than it would take to build a structure using a conventional approach.
Due to the nature of our smart-building's thermal properties and light weight steel being so highly recyclable, it is truely one of the most eco-friendly building materials on the market.
