A Building Research Association of New Zealand (BRANZ) paper, the Physical Characteristics of New Houses 2012, says timber framing is the predominant structural material but its use has been trending down over the past decade, losing more than 10 per cent market share.

National Association of Steel Framed Housing (NASH) covers the light steel framing industry - high strength, cold rolled steel - mainly used for housing, internal partitions and fitouts, and two-three storey buildings.

NASH general manager Carl Davies says market share for steel framing has increased from one per cent in 2008 to between seven and eight per cent today.

The industry has developed standards, investigated how the product performs under extreme conditions, and developed professional courses for builders and building officials.

FUTURENG • Lightweight Steel Framing Engineers and Consultants

We are an engineering company located in Europe and specialized in lightweight cold-formed galvanized steel framed structures, a building method usually known as Light Steel Framing (LSF).

We were founded in 2001 as an engineering and consulting company, specialized in steel framing. Our goal is to facilitate the transition from the traditional to the lightweight galvanized steel construction, providing comprehensive and specific technical assistance at various stages of the process.

We are located in Lisbon, capital of Portugal, but our market is Europe, where the Eurocodes became the reference design codes. Also, our engineering projects and services are used in several lusophone (Portuguese-speaking) nations where Portuguese is an official language, like Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde and Brazil.
