Steel Framing in Commercial Developments

Time and cost are critical factors in commercial construction – as every project manager and commercial builder knows. That is why, right throughout New Zealand, steel framing has become the construction method of choice for forward-thinking commercial property designers and builders.

Steel frames, steel trusses and steel roofing panels offer commercial advantages because they are lightweight and can be used even in poor weather – so build in down time is reduced.

Steel framing also offers:

  • quicker assembly on site – it comes pre-constructed and arrives in panels
  • straight forward assembly
  • easy modification on site compared to the need to cut/weld structural steel
  • easier maneuverability – it is lightweight and doesn’t require cranes
  • poor-weather construction, keeping projects on target
