Steel Frame Commercial Apartments

For many decades, we have used wood and concrete to build our homes and commercial buildings. However, in modern times, environmental concerns are constantly mounting, hence, people are looking for suitable alternatives to conventional constructions.

A light gauge steel building is basically a metal based structure that is fabricated with high quality steel. It’s allied materials provide the required internal support but are also used for exterior cladding. These kinds of steel buildings are gaining immense popularity in present time. They have outstanding  durability, strength.  Housing , educational buildings and commercial and institutional buildings can use  light gauge steel for construction.

Unlike traditional brick and mortar buildings, these buildings are much more affordable and quick to build. The steel frames are  lightweight and extremely robust and require comparatively less material than wood, leading to more savings. There are innumerable  benefits of steel. They do not rot and are completely immune to termites and pests. Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio compared to other building materials used presently. This virtue makes steel the most durable and toughest building material. It also makes buildings more resistant to the severe effects of natural calamities such as earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes and floods etc.

How MFC Construction beat the London Traffic

24 / 7 even the streets of greater London are continually flowing with traffic. So the ideal solution was to use light gauge  steel  to ensure a speedy construction with minimum disruption to heavy no stop traffic  One off the key advantages of using MFC light gauge steel systems was the  speed of offsite manufacturing and the light weight frames were easy to use around the confined space off a high street build. MFC Metal Frame construction supplied the light gauge steel to Powerwall construction in the UK. We manufactured it in our premises in Co Meath. We worked in conjunction with BGM Engineers who are overseeing the design of the apartments of the light gauge steel. Powerwall started the construction process in 2016 and will finish in October 2016. One off the key advantages of using MFC light gauge steel systems was the  speed of offsite manufacturing and the light weight frames were easy to use around the confined space off a high street build.

1.  Versatility & Long Spans
Steel is 100% accurate unlike timber.

2 . Long spans open spaces
Steel allows Architects to design large
wide open living spaces.

3. Cost effectiveness
Steel is cost effective because of speed of construction and less trades are needed.

4 Won’t rot twist or crack
Unlike timber, steel does not rot, twist or crack , is galvanised and has a long life span.

5. Built of site benefits
Pre fabricated indoors – so there is no-time loss to weather.

6. Environmental
75% of steel used in light gauge steel houses is recycled.
.
7. Weight to strength ratio
It takes a lot less to achieve your building design.

8. BER Rated
High BER rating achieved.
