This single storey dwelling was completed with the FRAMECAD System. This video demonstrates all the steps followed to successfully complete this residential building.
This 358m2 single-storey house is located on a 3037m2 piece of land and offers:
After only 48 hours of detailing, the project was fully designed, engineered and compliant with the local design code.
The main challenge of this construction was the complexity of the veranda roof design with overhangs, different roof heights and the main roof structure which did not line up with the veranda roof.
FRAMECAD Structure enabled the Detailer to complete the design and perform all necessary engineering calculations so that it would meet the local design code. Then the software produced the design plans which overcame the design complexity.
All the frames were produced offsite and assembled onsite. The detailed design function offered by FRAMECAD Structure ensured that the builders received high quality and precise shop drawings which allowed smooth and rapid assembly of the CFS frames.
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
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.
There are a great many benefits to be found when the decision is made to undertake off-site fabrication of partitioning walls through the use of FRAMECAD technology, rather than traditional on-site timber or stud track construction methods.
