Extending Your Development with Steel Framing

Extending Your Development with Steel Framing

Are you working with a commercial site or multi residential building and looking to extend its functionality and value? The key to success lies in smart, efficient and reliable construction. In this blog post, we’ll explore how Cortek’s light gauge pre-fabricated steel roof and wall framing solutions can make all the difference in your upcoming project.


Unlocking the Potential of Older Properties

Existing structures benefit from years of character, charm and quirks, however they present with their own unique set of challenges. Assessing the structure in its current form is vital to understanding any limitations, as sometimes more innovative and creative solutions are needed. This is where steel framing becomes a superpower!


Straight and True Framing

One of the greatest benefits of working with steel roof and wall framing is its precision. Working with existing structures requires a high degree of precision, which can present challenges when using other types of building materials. No need for costly and time-consuming adjustments to accommodate uneven walls or irregular dimensions.


3D Virtual Modelling

Before any work on site begins, our team utilises 3D virtual modelling to plan and design the perfect framing system for your extension. This process allows us to identify and address potential issues, ensuring a smooth installation process. Utilising technology is key to keeping Cortek projects running on time.


Easy On-Site Installation

Dealing with developments can be stressful enough. Our clients tell us time and time again that our easy on-site installation process makes the whole process simple and stress-free. We design our roof and wall framing solutions with simplicity in mind, saving you time, labour costs and ultimately granting you peace of mind.


Designed to Stand the Test of Time

Older properties often come with concerns about rot, termites and structural integrity. One of the many benefits to using steel, is that it is rust, termite and rot resistant. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that you have invested wisely (time, money and materials) into a project that will stand the test of time.


Lightweight Construction for Reduced Load

Some foundations may not be equipped to handle heavy construction materials. If this is the case with your commercial site or multi residential development, lightweight steel framing may be a more appropriate solution for you. Using steel framing not only reduces the load on the floor, but minimises stress on existing structures.


Fast Manufacturing and Weather Resistance

We understand that projects have timelines to adhere to, and timing is of the essence. Our fast, local manufacturing process ensures that your framing components are ready when you need them. The weather resistant nature of steel helps to minimise delays due to weather, where ordinarily construction would halt.


Tailored Solutions for Your Project

Every extension project is as unique as the existing structure which proceeds it. Cortek’s steel framing solutions are tailored to suit both your application and contractors needs. We work closely with all stakeholders to ensure our framing aligns perfectly with the vision for the project.


Extending a commercial space or multi residential development is an excellent way to improve a living or working space whilst also increasing its value. When you partner with Cortek, you invest in a range of benefits that make the renovation process easier, efficient and cost-effective.
