Why choose steel framing?

Our steel framing is designed, built and constructed for regional Queensland.

Steel is a superior construction material, with the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any load-bearing building material. There’s no need for termite protection, so these two factors alone make steel the perfect solution for Queensland construction.

Working with steel is much easier and faster to use on site than other building materials like timber. Light gauge steel will not rot or warp and doesn’t expand or contract with moisture, so it will always fit perfectly to design specifications and measurements.

Steel frames can be computer-modelled and pre-fabricated off-site – an important consideration if access and storage space on-site are project constraints. Transport and delivery can be timed to meet critical path requirements, with frames slotting into place exactly as needed. Construction is simplified and streamlined.

Overall, steel represents outstanding long-term value for investment. Designed and manufactured for strength, safety and durability, a steel building will go the distance without maintenance costs, no matter the climate or environment. And at end-of-life, steel is fully recyclable.
