  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Residential

    Residential housing takes many architectural forms. The versatility of Cold Formed Steel makes it ideal for construction of simple and challenging designs

  • 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.

  • Light Gauge Steel - SBS Group's top choice for top levels

    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.

  • Mariposa VII, a 7-storey multi-family building

    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 - Creating Australia’s largest LGS apartment building

    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

  • Intellisteel’s onsite methodology successfully delivers another assisted living facility

    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.
