Light Gauge Steel Frame Construction
The lightweight steel components in the build envelope are highly insulated and have proven performance characteristics. ‘Warm frame’ construction provides a thermally efficient
Steel construction is a highly versatile sustainable technology that is widely used in all sectors of the building industry, used increasingly in housing and residential buildings.
The Advantages of using Lightweight Steel Framed construction
The structural loads of the building are carried by all of the studs which act as individual columns. This is why they are always aligned immediately above each other for the full height of the building. The studs are storey height in length but a steel to steel contact at floor level ensures continuity.
