The Company provides complete turn-key programs including factory layout and design, along with training and support in addition to a comprehensive market analysis. Using exclusive CAD/CAM steel roll forming equipment, the Company’s proprietary manufacturing technology and proven business model, the steel manufacturing plants are capable of building everything from “tiny homes", to single family modular and multifamily homes. In addition the facility is able to produce steel frame panels for use in the construction of residential, commercial and industrial buildings. In some markets the factory also produces a steel frame truss package available for use on buildings built with timber, concrete or other base materials.
Steel is the strongest structure available. It is able to sustain sustained wind forces in excess of 150 MPH. Steel frame systems enables architectural and design flexibility that is cost efficient, sustainable, durable and safe. It is fire resistant, will not rot or warp, is totally impervious and rodent proof … AND it is cost competitive. The product line is far superior and cost competitive to any existing traditional “wood frame” modular, manufactured or site built housing that is currently available – and it is GREEN!
Steel differs from concrete and other building methods in its attributed compressive strength as well as tensile strength. Steel has exceptionally high strength, stiffness, toughness, and ductile properties. Steel has the highest strength to weight ratio of any building material. It is by nature a superior construction material and is the most commonly used material in commercial and industrial building construction.
⌂ Building a home with wood generates 30 times more landfill waste than steel and consumes about two dozen mature trees versus half a dozen recycled scrap autos.
⌂ Steel is a 100% recyclable GREEN building material: More steel is recycled every year than plastic, glass, paper and aluminum combined making it truly compatible with long-term sustainable development.
⌂ Steel framing is recommended by The American Lung Association in support of better indoor air quality as part of its Healthy House program.
⌂ Steel framing does not require pesticides or toxins to protect it from termites or other pests.
⌂ Steel framing does not utilize resins, adhesives or chemicals normally used for wood construction. Manufactured and site-built homes are all typically built with wood products that contain formaldehyde resins and other chemicals.
⌂ Steel does not promote mold or fungal spores as it contains no moisture. Kiln-dried lumber contains 11-14% residual water.
⌂ Steel is dimensionally stable; it does not expand or contract in reaction to environment; it does not rot, warp, split, crack, or creep.
⌂ Steel frame manufacturing creates minimal carbon emissions and waste.
⌂ Steel framing can be engineered to meet wind load forces of hurricanes and tornados.
⌂ Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any framing material (lighter and stronger). Steel frame structures can reduce damage from seismic forces of earthquakes.
⌂ A steel structure is up to 50% lighter than a concrete alternative, reducing potential damage from foundation settlement.
⌂ Steel is lightning resistant due to multiple conductive paths to the ground and reduces fire/explosion risk in the event of accident or disaster.
⌂ Occupants of steel-framed structures are exposed to fewer toxins.
⌂ Steel has a significantly longer life-span than wood and is compliant with ASTM corrosion resistant coatings standards.
⌂ Steel is non-combustible and not an accelerant for fire which improves fire safety and can reduce homeowner insurance costs.
⌂ Engineered steel construction can produce designs unobtainable in any other construction material.
⌂ Steel framing provides cost efficient components for additions, retro-fitting or damage repair.
⌂ Steel’s high strength results in safer structures, less maintenance and slower structural aging.
