How the design system works

  • We make use of a 3D Virtual design tool.
  • Various panel groups are created, ( floors, walls, ceilings, roofs, trusses and supports). Each individual panel contains a panel layout and other information that controls the frame configuration.
  • Frames can be further customized to include special noggins and braces, and have plates, “L” headers, strap bracing and strapping.
  • The software also gives access to engineering graphs which enable the designer to construct the panels in accordance with the engineering requirements for their purpose.
  • Once design is completed and thoroughly checked, it will be transferred to the Roll Former for frames to be manufacture

The Process of Building

  • Standard foundation as is the case with a brick structure
  • Frames are manufactured and assembled, then being erected on the concrete floor with chemical anchors.
  • Outside skin is cladded with a layer of 9mm OSB board for extra stability. After that the complete structure is wrapped with a waterproof membrane, final layer outside is done in a variety of products like Weber Etics System (Polestyrene Cladding), Nutec board,  single skin bricks or Vermont planks to name a few.
  • All services are introduced into the wall cavity before closing up the wall.
  • The frame inside is covered with a 15mm fire stop gypsum board and the whole wall is then plastered with Rhinolite Gypsum plaster to a thickness of 3-6 mm.

The finishing touches

  • Roof cladding, ceilings, flooring, paint, windows / doors and wall tiles are done according to client specifications, but will also have an cost elevation effect depending on the clients requirements.
  • Client also has the option of employing additional contractors for Ceilings, Flooring, Paint, Wall tiles / covering, landscaping and kitchen / bathroom outfitting.
  • Building time is between 8-12 weeks for the complete finished product.
