Due to the inherent advantages of steel framing, the overall ‘shell’ construction time is significantly reduced which subsequently reduces the overall construction cost. Other avenues of cost reduction are realised thru:

  1. No additional termite prevention required.
  2. Follow-on building services trades are quicker to install due to the pre-punched service holes in the wall frames, eliminating the need for wall chasing, drilling, or cutting.
  3. All materials are pre-cut off site, further reducing the need for waste disposal and heavy machinery transport.
  4. Steel has a high strength to weight ratio minimizing the requirements of the thicker slabs underneath.
