utilizing CFS wall and roof frames
We prepare professional architectural and construction plans and details
All our architectural plans include the interior design and furniture proposals so the client can have a very clear picture of the space utilization.
Modern graphics to display the final version of the project and draw attention of investors and clients.
who already have a project we can supply them with only the CFS frames as required.
The construction of the house will be done by our authorized subcontractors.
To create affordable passive houses designed with the latest building technology, earthquake and fire proof safe, with near zero energy requirements and to be able to deliver them to the client in a very short period.
Why build with CFS.
For the last several years cold-formed steel structures can be seen all around us, but mostly in the sphere of industrial buildings. However implementing that type of construction into the residential buildings was imminent and most important - necessary. As the market grows the need for affordable housing is growing exponentially. Here are several key factors why CFS can deliver the necessary structure for budget houses:
Steel framing strength -to- weight ratio significantly exceeds that of concrete. Being strong and relatively lightweight, CFS systems reduce a building’s total load which, in turn, allows the owner to save costs beginning at the foundation.
Panelizing CFS wall panels off-site reduces on- site labor costs and construction waste. It cuts the total project cycle time and improves quality control, since CFS components can be created to exact measurements.
The predictability and accuracy of steel components speed up the process and allow follow -on trades to get to work sooner. The shorter construction time frame reduces interim financing costs for projects. It also narrows the window of construction-related liability and allows for earlier building occupancy.
Ready-mixed supply of CIP concrete during winter construction can add cost to a project and concrete requires artificial heat in order to cure during cold temperatures. Neither of these costs are associated with steel framing.
Steel’s shorter construction cycle means equipment can move on and off the job site faster. This lowers crane costs and reduces scaffold rental times, for example.
Steel is dimensionally stable and does not expand or contract with changes in moisture content. Steel will not warp, split, crack or creep when exposed to the elements. When materials like brick are exposed to moisture, they swell. When dried, wood will warp, crack, chip, split and spall. Concrete and concrete block will shrink and form shrinkage cracks. Dimensional stability concerns are magnified when these types of materials are used in taller mid-rise buildings. Additionally, steel is resistant to termites and rodents.
The exact steps one should follow in order to get his house/building done in a short period of time with exact pricing.
Once you have your plot, you can choose a design from our list of pre-designed houses or request a new design based on your specific needs, style, budget and space requirements.
After the plan is finalized and accepted by you, we will proceed using our special software to create the CFS structural design for the wall and roof frames.
Considering the overall plan, furniture and the desired look of the house we can provide you with the exact price of the building.
Once all building permits have been secured and a green light for the production is given, we will manufacture your house in a very short period of time.
We will assemble the wall and roof frames in our factory and ship them to you for on-site completion.
We calculated that in about 2-6 months, depending on the size and local conditions, your house will be fully completed and you should be able to move in.
