Light Steel Fabrication historically has been less expensive than competing forms of non-combustible construction
Light Steel Fabrication is manufactured from sheet steel on continuous roll forming mills at high speed. Speed and efficiency contributes to profits and savings.
Another cost saving advantage may be that the project can be completed ahead of schedule, enabling the owner or developer to achieve occupancy or retail income faster.
In a typical midrise project, Light Steel Fabrication can be erected three to four months quicker.
In Light Steel Fabrication construction – exterior walls of every floor are erected completely framed and finished with exterior cladding. Once the panels are installed all interior trades can immediately start working, rather than waiting for the building to be closed in.
In our Light Steel Fabrication modular process, completely finished portions of the building are assembled in our factory and shipped to site where they are installed on site prepared foundations works and connected to site prepared civil works.
With its high strength and protective coatings, Light Steel Fabrication is impressively durable. Standard coatings on Light Steel Fabrication in properly constructed, environmentally controlled buildings will perform for greater lengths of time.
High structural efficiency steel has one of the highest weights to strength ratios of all construction materials. This strength advantage means better design flexibility, wider spans and better material usage.
Steel is a non-combustible material and will not add fuel to a building fire. Insurance underwriters will recognize the benefit of non-combustibility in reduced premiums.
