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.
