Light Gauge Cold Formed Steel: The Cost Effective Solution with Conventional Framing

In addition to offering the Ecospan and Hambro Floor Systems, Extreme Construction also provides conventional framing, making Extreme Construction the full-service solution for your mid-rise building needs.

With building codes permitting steel to be used in mid-rise developments, Extreme Construction uses light gauge, cold formed steel for our framing to lower material costs while increasing the structural strength, making light gauge a cost effective alternative to expensive concrete and traditional structural steel systems.

 

 

Benefits of Using Light Gauge in Conventional Framing

  • Highest strength-to-weight ratio means fewer material costs
  • Load bearing walls are structurally stronger
  • Wider stud spacing cuts material building costs by 20%
  • Cold formed steel is lighter than traditional steel reducing the amount of cement needed in foundations

By using light gauge steel with conventional framing methods, Extreme Construction can erect and frame mid-rise developments quickly, safely and cost effectively. Contact us to discuss how we can help you save money on your next mid-rise project.
