We’d like to make a special mention to the Commonwealth and State Governments working together to ensure the Construction sector remains strong and open for business so all of us in the industry can continue to trade in these challenging days. Staying positive in a quickly evolving environment calls for smarter building solutions, now more than ever.
This week’s update includes some interesting articles from around the web, Quote of the Week, FAQ’s on building with steel and more.

STEEL VS TIMBER: FAQ’S
IS STEEL FRAMING TERMITE RESISTANT?
Fabricated steel frames are by nature termite, borer and fungus proof and do not need to be treated with insecticides. Steel frames satisfy the requirements of the National Construction Code for termite resistant materials. As per the building code and applicable areas, other additional termite barriers may need to be installed to protect other building materials on the project.
HOW MUCH DESIGN FLEXIBILITY WILL I HAVE IF I CHOOSE TO WORK WITH STEEL FRAMES?
A lot! Pre-fabricated LGS frames can be manufactured to the exact design specifications of almost any residential and commercial building project you can think of. The high strength-to-weight ratio and flexibility also allows for wide spans, open spaces and architectural rooflines which may not be otherwise possible when traditional timber or structural steel is used.
