Build smart and save
There are both immediate and long-term financial savings when using light steel frame as the main material in a structure. Below we will list some specifics...
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.
1. Long-Term Cost Saving
Because of the thermal properties of a light weight steel building you will save money on utility bills the whole year-round. Cool in summer and insulated in winter our light-weight steel technology offers great savings on things such as heating bills and the need for cooling systems in the warmer months.
The lack of foundation preparation needed to support a light weight steel building results in less water consumption and need for heavy machinery during construction. It is also over time a much more environmentally friendly building option as these buildings have a light environmental footprint compared to more conventional 'bricks and mortar' methods of construction.
Shipping containers meet light weight steel.
This concept is a marriage of our trusty light steel frame building method and the popular shipping container creating something truly unique and versatile. This home's proposed site was a rocky cliff-side location which required some out-the-box thinking to make the concept work.
Keeping a roof over your head.
Light steel frame roof trusses have the same capabilities as wooden trusses yet there are many advantages to building a roof using light steel frame. It is lighter than traditional timber and is prefabricated using advanced software resulting in strong, accurate roof trusses suitable for all building types.
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.
Save the planet, and your pocket...
The list of advantages of building using light steel frame is a long one. But today we're focusing on 3 big benefits of our smart-building technology. We feel the time has come to take charge and claim responsibility for the health of the environment and create awareness of how our building methodology can help shape a more eco-friendly future in Southern Africa and beyond.
2019 & Beyond
This year we've decided to take a bold stance and declare ourselves leaders of the smart-building! We've been developing our unique systems and alternative building technologies in recent years to not only provide our clients with top-class builds but also to allow for a fully integrated building solution with countless pro's and virtually no cons.
Through the combined use of automation, renewable energy, modern design and real world expertise we've developed a world-first building solution that truly celebrates modern urban living. Throughout the course of this year we will be mapping out our vision of a modern, clean, cost-efficient future for the construction industry. We will also be sharing insight into what makes our smart-buildings so special as well as information on how you can start to plan for your own projects in the future.
Stay tuned for regular posts on this blog as we begin our journey of exploration into the future of construction!
