Why Pre-Fabricate?

Improved Productivity = Increased Profitability

Design Flexibility

Using our BUILD SMARTER™ system, we design and manufacture prefab cold formed steel frames to any specification – straight, true and accurate to suit your individual project requirements.

Less Risk

Fast and easy installation of lightweight steel framing means less on site labour, reducing the risk of fatalities and downtime.

Precise Accuracy

Our pre-fabricated steel frames are manufactured to quality and exacting standards. We use state of the art 3D CAD technology and CNC machinery for efficient and accurate results.

Faster Construction

Do you have a tight project schedule? With framing delivered to site for immediate installation, on site time is significantly reduced.

Increased Productivity

Lightweight steel framing is simple to install and does not require any further straightening or packing out, making projects easier and faster to complete.

Our process explained and broken down

Step 01. Design

When it comes to design and providing efficient solutions, we can achieve almost anything. For years, we’ve challenged the traditional mindset of building by creating flexible and smarter systems. Forward your design specification and allow us to value engineer an easier solution for your construction requirements.

Step 02. Estimating

Every project is unique in design, scope and detail. Therefore, communication in estimating is critical to guarantee the right design aspect has been thoroughly detailed for a successful outcome. Our quotation submissions explain the scope of the project, engineering requirements and marked up plans.

Step 03. Shop Detailing & Engineering

Using the latest 3D computerised software, pre-fabricated framing is shop detailed in-house, offering comprehensive fabrication layout plans and fixing locations. Framing is modelled to comply with the relevant building codes and certified engineering specifications.

Step 05. Manufacture

Within our controlled factory environment, our specialised team of assembly personnel ensure your framing is fabricated to quality and exacting standards. Using state of the art CNC machinery, framing is processed efficiently and accurately for on time delivery without the hinderance of site conditions.

Step 06. Delivery

Deliveries on time and on the right transport is of paramount importance to our despatch personnel. Framing is securely packed, carefully loaded and transported to ensure products and quality are delivered, ready for installation.
