Gearing Up to Meet Unprecedented Demand
At a time when the need for fast-track construction solutions has never been greater, the award-winning team at EOS are facing unprecedented demand for their innovative steel framing systems (SFS), including the company’s revolutionary integrated floor and walling solutions – Thrubuild®.
To meet this growth, the EOS management team have further plans to extend the leading offsite innovators advanced manufacturing facility as the construction industry looks to robust steel framing solutions to meet stringent fire and building regulations.
With experience across all construction sectors – the EOS team will be taking to the road in 2020 to showcase their expertise in the design, manufacture and supply of a wide range of bespoke steel systems for the offsite markets. By combining strength, durability and precision engineering, the EOS portfolio offers broad parameters to explore innovative solutions and optimise value engineering.
Managing Director Steve Thompson said: ‘With the launch of our innovative new systems in 2019 and our specialist partnering services, I’m delighted to report that we are gearing up to meet this upsurge and exhibiting at some of the UK’s largest offsite events, so we can meet in person more potential clients. Following the success of our attendance at Offsite Expo last year, we will be there in force again in 2020 as Gold Sponsors, with a major presence showcasing our Thrubuild® systems in the construction of our custom-built stand and the Masterclass Seminar Theatre.’
The EOS Thrubuild® loadbearing and non-loadbearing systems have been developed as an integrated solution, using a range of light steel framing, Siniat Weather Defence external sheathing board, and Siniat Frameboard – an internal plasterboard exclusively developed for the EOS loadbearing systems by Siniat – a world leader in plasterboard materials. These complete floor and walling systems carry a 30-year warranty and have been tested and assessed for compliance with the latest regulations and standards to ensure robust and reliable performance. Design performance is achieved using combinations of boarding and insulation. Almost all building arrangements can be achieved, and non-loadbearing drywall systems can also be used to sub-divide space following initial construction of the building system.
Steve Thompson said of the product development: ‘The combination of expertise within Etex in drylining, external sheathing and steel framing systems, as well as passive fire protection, means that we are uniquely positioned to bring together these elements to create a range of tested and warrantied Thrubuild® systems. Meeting building performance requirements for fire, thermal, weathering, acoustics and airtightness – the range of Thrubuild® systems deliver an ‘all in one’ solution providing crucial time and cost benefits.’
Not only do the specialists at EOS push the boundaries by investing in advanced manufacturing facilities and product development but where the firm excels, is building excellent working relationships based on customer needs. Through collaborative working and by forming strategic alliances, EOS provide specialist services to businesses, large and small, including some of the most prominent companies in construction.
