Benefits Buildability: The use of pre-fabricated and preassembled steel components reduces site works, material waste and improves quality.
Speed: This system requires a shorter construction period compared to that of a conventional system.
Strong but Lightweight: Steel has one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any construction material. This results in savings at the foundation level; the lightness makes for easier on-site handling.
Safety: Steel’s inherent strength and noncombustible qualities enable light steel frame houses to resist such devastating events as fires, earthquakes, and hurricanes. Homes can be designed to meet the highest seismic and wind load specifications in any part of the country.
Quality: A better quality finished house that is durable and low in maintenance.
Easy to Remodel: Remodeling can be easily accomplished. Non-load bearing walls can be readily relocated, removed or altered.
Design Flexibility: Because of its strength, steel can span longer lengths, offering larger open spaces and increased design flexibility without requiring intermediate columns or load bearing walls.
Recyclable: All steel products are recyclable.
Foundation: This foundation is not the same as the foundation for traditional buildings due to the lighter building load. Therefore this foundation saves on cost and requires less material.
