How can FRAMECAD be used?

Designed using specialist computer-aided CAD design and engineering software, the FRAMECAD System allows for cold formed steel to be implemented across a variety of construction applications


Cold formed steel construction and processes are increasingly used by building companies all around the world, the versatile nature of cold formed steel and the FRAMECAD system allows the rapid and effective construction of mid-rise and residential buildings, warehousing, commercial buildings, façades, modular buildings, pods and more.

The FRAMECAD System unlocks the ability to design and construct web joists, trusses, structural framing and internal partitioning suitable for a diverse range of construction types.

Because of the time saving and quality assurance gained by implementing cold formed steel across a wide selection of applications, it's obvious why FRAMECAD is The Way the World Constructs.

  • Aged Care Facilities

    FRAMECAD allows developers to meet tight deadlines without compromising on quality. By supplying rapidly constructed framing components, developers can enjoy the benefits of cost-effective high density construction.

  • Disaster Relief

    The ability to deliver quality social housing products anywhere in the world makes FRAMECAD the perfect design and build solution for disaster relief housing. It provides all the building materials and local training needed to construct safe shelters quickly.

  • Façade

    Façade systems comprise the structural elements that the building envelope is created from, a wide variety of facade treatments and shapes may be created using CFS, including large ribbon windows, curved and inclined walls, solar shading and balconies.

  • Industrial Warehousing

    Flexible, reliable commercial storage and warehousing needs to be built rapidly and affordably to respond to growth. The FRAMECAD System provides everything required to implement this type of commercial construction – from building design to manufacture and onsite training.

  • Institutional Buildings

    The rapid, modern steel frame construction offered by FRAMECAD helps local and central governments construct quality, economical institutional buildings for their communities. Leveraging global reach and experience, FRAMECAD works directly with these agencies and with developers and contractors.

  • Internal Drywall Framing

    Remove the inaccuracies and material waste of traditional CFS stud and track framing and timber systems. Implementing the FRAMECAD system saves time on site and allows precise installation of internal partitioning, apartment and commercial office walls. Engineered to achieve code compliant fire and acoustic ratings, the FRAMECAD system is easy to specify and install.

  • Mid-Rise Residential & Commercial

    CFS construction allows developers to meet tight timelines without compromising on quality and allows fast construction of Mid-Rise buildings including; apartments, commercial office buildings, hotels, aged care facilities and more.

  • Modular Construction

    Modular construction refers to taking factory-produced pre-engineered building units and delivering them to site. They’re then assembled as large elements of a building, the light weight nature of CFS makes modular units to be transported and installed on site in a fast and cost-saving manner.

  • Pods

    Pod Construction offers a number of benefits to project owners, developers, construction companies and builders. Beyond quality management and improved completion time, controlled manufacturing environments and repeatable designs – like prefabricated, bathroom pods – can help you drastically reduce overall cost, simplify construction and improve safety.

  • Prefabricated Construction

    The highly accurate and accelerated production of the FRAMECAD system means that walls, trusses and joists can be prefabricated off site at rapid speed. The streamlined FRAMECAD roll forming equipment takes up minimal space and allows for easy assembly.

  • Remote Construction

    The FRAMECAD Mobile Factory has been designed to enable quick start production on any site. It is ideal for areas with no existing infrastructure and can be delivered via land, sea or air. Complete with all the equipment necessary for immediate production, the FRAMECAD Mobile Factory is perfect for time critical jobs, or urgent disaster relief housing and reconstruction projects.

  • Residential

    Residential housing takes many architectural forms. The versatility of Cold Formed Steel makes it ideal for construction of simple and challenging designs


  • Software

    Intelligent FRAMECAD CAD software streamlines engineering, designing and detailing processes, ensuring buildings can be rapidly designed and built. Allows for easy duplication, while being strong, durable and code compliant.

  • Manufacturing equipment

    FRAMECAD has created the world’s most efficient design and manufacturing technology for roll-forming steel trusses, joists and frames. FRAMECAD Systems are the intelligent choice for organizations wanting to deliver large scale production and projects.
