Housing Solutions

Taking a Safety-First Approach to Housing

As a proven and versatile technology, light steel frame construction offers numerous cost, programme and safety benefits for housing developers and social housing providers. Light steel frame is non-combustible and does not add to the fire load of a building. Our research and perspective interviews with sector experts have equipped us with a deep understanding of the challenges faced by housing specifiers and we have developed a range of systems to deliver a safety-first approach.
