FRAMECAD Structure

Save time with the world's most code compliant engineering design software for cold formed steel structures.

FRAMECAD Structure makes real-time engineering calculations as the designs are created - analyzing loads, deflections and other forces - making it an easy process to optimize building code compliance whilst delivering best value engineering practices.

Based on the powerful IntelliCAD platform FRAMECAD Structure is an integrated engineering package, that saves you time and money. Completing over 25,000 engineering calculations per square meter of roof and walls in just seconds, FRAMECAD Structure improves your engineering time by up to 80%.

Using our simple plug-in, FRAMECAD Revlink, allows you to work seamlessly between Revit and FRAMECAD Structure, secure in the knowledge that you always have one complete model available. The integration between platforms is two-way and very fast to run, speeding up the engineering and design processes.

  • 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.


  • Douglass Colony showcases speed of FRAMECAD system with 90-unit Sagebrush Apartments

    Geared to attract local residents, Sagebrush is a 90-unit building nestled in the foothills of East Gros Ventre Butte and overlooking Flat Creek. Perfectly situated near downtown Jackson, Sagebrush aims to be one of the most popular complexes in the area — and a project Douglass Colony was proud to work on.

  • FrameTech CFS manufacturing facility

    When FrameTech Systems outgrew their existing manufacturing facility, they knew it was time for a bigger, more flexible space. As experts in cold formed steel (CFS) construction, they also knew exactly which method they would use to bring that space to life. So how did their award-winning CFS facility come to fruition?

  • SBS Apartments and Townhouses

    Having made the switch to FRAMECAD’s automated construction system in April 2016, prefabricated steel framing experts SBS Group have used their FRAMECAD system to make significant savings for their customers whilst delivering an accelerated construction process.
