Performance Assured

EOS are continually looking at ways to make the building process not only inherently safer but also to offer performance assurances to developers to make certain they can provide sufficient levels of protection to occupants:

  • The amount of combustible material in a light steel framed building is much lower
  • Steel is non-combustible and does not add to the fire load of a building
  • Fire resistance periods from 60 – 120 minutes are readily achievable
  • Steel offers the best strength-to-weight ratio to improve efficiencies
  • EOS implement rigorous testing and quality control regimes
  • Light steel frame structures fully comply with Building Regulations

Advanced Manufacturing

Embracing a World Class Manufacturing ethos and optimising Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) principles are at the heart of the EOS operation. With a culture of continuous improvement, we invest in research to develop pioneering offsite systems which deliver enhanced quality, productivity and safety.
