FRAMECAD Cold Formed Steel 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.
Because of the time saving and quality assurance gained by CFS across a wide selection of applications, it's obvious why FRAMECAD system is The Way the World Constructs.
Watch how Douglass Colony Group construct a A 6-level, 156-room hotel project. All 644 wall panels for this project were erected in just 17 working days using a 6-man crew (this project included only wall panel erection - no floor install, or concrete work).
The FRAMECAD® ST950H is a multi-profile system offering fast, efficient, automated production and flexible profile output. With heavy duty gauge capacity up to 97 mils (2.5 mm or 12 gauge) this robust system is ideal for the manufacture of wall frames, wide-spanning roof trusses or long-spanning floor joists. Perfect for large scale production of load-bearing, mid-rise cold formed steel projects.
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.
Save time and investment with engineering design software for cold formed steel structures, with the world's most code compliant system for cold formed steel.
FRAMECAD Detailer is a versatile CAD package with world-leading detailing flexibility. Detailer makes it quick and easy to produce designs for automated production.
All 422 load-bearing wall panels for levels three through seven of this 7-story (five levels on two levels of podium) project was fabricated at Douglass Colony's headquarters in Commerce City using FRAMECAD and shipped directly to the jobsite where the building was erected in a total of 40 working days, including all wall panels, flooring systems, and detailing with concrete poured and cured.
Dynamic Steel Frame hold the honour of having constructed the largest light-gauge steel (LGS) three storey apartment building in Australia using the FRAMECAD System. Located in the inner-western suburb of Yarraville, Melbourne, this three-level residential building illustrates how LGS is changing today’s approach to construction
For multi-level buildings, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that timber, concrete, and hot-rolled steel aren’t always the best options – especially when it comes to the top floor. That’s why so many developers are now looking for ways to save on time, labour, and costs during the construction process.
In the US, the framing industry is changing rapidly. Concrete contractors are becoming a rarity and timber continues to offer challenges due to inferior material and a lack of availability. These days, US construction companies are turning more and more to cold-formed steel (CFS), and FRAMECAD partner Intellisteel is revolutionizing how these steel framed structures are built.
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.
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 housing takes many architectural forms. The versatility of Cold Formed Steel makes it ideal for construction of simple and challenging designs
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.
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 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.
