Modular Construction

Modular construction offers a truly revolutionary way to redefine the building process with countless applications, by assembling off site.


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 FRAMECAD Cold Formed Steel makes modular units to be transported and installed on site in a fast and cost-saving manner.

Designed and developed to be robust and cost-effective, FRAMECAD steel framing is ideal for transportable utility buildings such as barracks, offices, and cabins. The FRAMECAD System also includes all the building materials, training and design support needed to construct fast and accurately.

FRAMECAD Modular solutions can be used for Permanant and Non-Permanent Modular Construction


  • Can be implemented in geographic locations where traditional methods are not optimum
    Construction in areas with high wind speeds and/or seismic activity, salt-spray zones and other challenging environmental locations will often make traditional methods of construction difficult, uneconomic or unsustainable.
  • Sites with confined or restricted access
    In the past, the construction of buildings in difficult access areas or in situations where there is no access to infrastructure, such as disaster zones, has been notoriously difficult to undertake.
  • Complex projects where a high degree of quality and control is needed
    Modular solutions in a factory environment exercises a greater degree of planning and control over construction quality compared to on-site workmanship.
  • Projects with strict timelines
    CFS modular construction is faster than traditional methods at every step in the design, specification, manufacture and construction phases of a construction project.
