In cases of disaster, immediate production of temporary and permanent structures such as hospitals, relief centers and housing can begin within hours of the Mobile Factory's arrival.
The ability to deliver a variety of construction applications anywhere in the world makes FRAMECAD the perfect design and build solution for disaster relief housing. FRAMECAD can provide all the building materials and local training needed to construct safe shelters quickly.
The FRAMECAD F325iT is a highly versatile member of the FRAMECAD manufacturing system. Designed to offer increased production speed, greater flexibility and increased reliability, the F325iT roll-forming machine is best suited for residential and light commercial projects.
Producing wall frames and trusses for pods, modular and residential structures quickly and economically, the FRAMECAD P325iT boasts the industry's fastest automated high line speed of up to 2,880m/hr. Coupled with 12 advanced precision punching functions, this machine delivers high productivity and versatile componentry for roof trusses, walls and floor joists.
The FRAMECAD Mobile Factory is a completely secure, self-contained steel frame roll-forming production facility that can be located anywhere needed, especially in remote areas with little or no infrastructure. 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.
As a dedicated roll-forming machine for web joists, the FRAMECAD J325iT features additional punching tools to manufacture web joists up to 40% faster than the rest of the F325iT range. The J325iT allows roll formers to operate a focused web joist line whilst other machines focus on framing and trusses.
With natural disasters affecting some of the most vulnerable communities across the world, Build Back Better and Safer principles are becoming increasingly important for rebuilding or strengthening buildings in affected areas and protecting the community against excessive damage from future disasters. The FRAMECAD system and the Mobile Factory offers a quick, easily transportable solution to companies and communities looking to rebuild using Build Back Better and Safer principles. Here is just one example of when that’s made a real difference to a community.
In Chile, a country prone to high-magnitude earthquakes, builders are consistently seeking materials to support seismically-stable designs. Responsible Chilean builders have long understood the necessity of a sound structural design, often using state-of-the-art technologies and products to ensure construction is safe beyond the minimal building code requirements. But typically, the safest construction options are pricey and time consuming, resulting in project delays and compromises for lower quality materials.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
