Institutional buildings

The rapid, modern steel frame construction offered by FRAMECAD® helps local and central governments construct quality, economical institutional buildings for their communities.

Institutional construction

The time-saving benefits of the FRAMECAD System helps construct quality and economical institutional buildings for communities. 

FRAMECAD systems can deliver cost and time efficient construction in areas with few facilities, or those affected by conflict or disaster. FRAMECAD has been implemented globally in the construction of schools, hospital, government buildings and other institutional facilities. 

Benefits of institutional solutions with FRAMECAD

  • The high strength-to-weight ratio of CFS allows for the easy construction of open spaces and large spans in rooms
  • The lightweight, high-strength, non-combustible nature of cold formed steel, as well as its ease of installation, makes it an ideal and cost competitive solution
  • CFS is a great choice for quick response applications as CFS structures are resilient and can withstand extreme environmental conditions.
  • Safer buildings are becoming increasingly important particularly in areas prone to natural disasters. CFS is a great choice for quick response applications as they are resilient and can withstand extreme environmental conditions.
  • Suitable for construction in remote areas with limited resources, including disaster relief and military installations
  • Institutional buildings often require fast construction, minimal disruption and a lower overall project cost. The FRAMECAD System helps deliver exactly this.

  • Mobile Factory

    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.

  • PEB300

    Producing frames & purlins for portal buildings; the PEB200 has the ability to Ability to roll form C / U / Z and Sigma profiles. The PEB300 provides a truly flexible approach to design and production of PEB and portal framed buildings.

  • ST900iT

    A multi-profile solution for flooring and framing construction, the ideal solution for producing light gauge steel framing and flooring profiles with sizes between 92mm (3⅝" ) and 305mm (12"). Built to handle 0.95 – 2.00mm (20 - 14ga) base metal thickness (BMT), the ST900iT can be used in buildings where structural strength is required.

  • TF550H

    The FRAMECAD TF550H provides heavy duty manufacturing solutions for high volume production. It has been designed to produce heavy duty framing profiles best suited for all frames, roof trusses, floor joists and roof and floor panels where extra strength in construction is required.


  • Build Back Better in disaster areas with FRAMECAD

    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.

  • Xerona Michael: School project in Nigeria

    Building 28 school extensions across one of the states in Nigeria is no simple task, but steel framing enables Xerona Michael to take on projects such as this with ease.


  • 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

  • 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.
