PERMITTING 

FRAME TEAM has over 25 years of experience permitting a wide range of commercial to residential  projects. 

Many premanufactured builders will try to sell you an off-the-shelf model however most designs do not meet Local Municipal Design Standards. You ultimately end up with a model that will most likely not get approved by the Planning Department. 

BUILDING 

"FRAME INC." HAS A LIST OF QUALIFIED BUILDERS THAT CAN ASSIST YOU WITH YOUR FULL​ CONSTRUCTION NEEDS."

Construction efficiency and generating a higher ROI are primary concerns for any developer, builder and contractor. 

Any and every project can benefit from increased speed of construction, without sacrificing quality of building components, regulatory compliance, or skillied engineering or labor. Building with cold-formed steel (CFS) takes care of those concerns. 

Major components can be produced at scale with high precision in a factory-controlled environment. The end result is a construction process that moves faster than a project employing traditional building methods.

Using a CFS design-build process enables building to go up faster than traditional heavy materials like concrete or masonry - up to 3 months or more can be shaved off the schedule of most construction reducing the hard cost of your project.
We will give you an overview of the 3 main phases: design and specification, manufacturing and construction.

Stage 1: Saving Time through Design & Specification

Building projects using traditional construction materials may involve a significant amount of time resolving engineering issues and revising detail design.

The FRAME INC. uses specialized detailing and engineering software, making the process of engineering, designing and detailing each project fast, simple and highly accurate. Because all design and engineering is managed with software in the beginning, engineering costs are reduced, along with most potential errors in manufacturing.

The end result?

Highly accurate construction of materials, and the presence of all build-ready steel components on-site for more efficient labor and faster compliance. This means developers can have more confidence that the early detail design is much more conclusive when it comes time to build.

Stage 2: Accurate and Precise manufacturing, which reduces delays and avoids errors

With wood and concrete-based construction, waste can be a major issue.

The CFS design-led process allows for fast production of all needed joists, frames, and trusses with minimized waste.

Once CFS pieces are specified by software, they can quickly be produced at scale. Roll-forming machines can take steel coils and produce frames and other components that are precisely measured. Each piece will be consistent in quality and cut exactly as specified, and components can be produced in large quantities.

This way, time is saved and errors are eliminated in manufacturing. Laborers are able to erect structures without being delayed by sudden adjustments or needing to wait for revised parts. And with the high output of the roll-forming machinery, more precise parts arrive on-site, faster with consistent quality.

 

Stage 3: Full readiness and predictable scheduling in the construction phase

In construction projects using concrete, wood, or masonry, many contingencies must be considered, and contractors can often expect schedules to be stretched. FRAME INC. allows for much more predictable scheduling of construction — and a much quicker date of completion.

CFS frames can be assembled offsite before they arrive on the construction site, and trusses and joists can arrive ready for use.

CFS components are lightweight and eliminate the need for heavy lifting equipment during the erection phase. FRAME INC.  doesn’t require any welding or riveting in assembly and as steel is unaffected by rainwater or other sources of moisture, traditional delays caused by the need for essential (timber) pieces to dry are eliminated.

Overall, reduced engineering needs, accuracy, better quality building and other advantages of the CFS design-led process yield faster construction and quicker compliance, all at reduced costs. FRAME INC.  ensures faster, accuracy and more seamless operations in every phase of a building project.
