Light Steel Information Sheets available from SCI
BIM and 3D Modelling in Light Steel Construction (P407)
This information sheet highlights how BIM and 3D modelling are extensively used in the light steel construction sector.
The use of computerised production methods for the components has meant that light steel producers have been early adopters of BIM and have fully embraced its principles. A general overview of the different BIM levels is also provided.
Light Steel Load-Bearing Walls (P408)
The primary attributes and benefits of light steel load-bearing walls are explained in this information sheet, such as speed of construction and design flexibility.
The structural design considerations are described, including load resistance and the provision of vertical bracing systems incorporated into load-bearing light steel walls.
Value Benefits of Light Steel Construction (P409)
Speed of construction, lightweight and quality are generally the three overriding value benefits associated with light steel construction. These benefits and others are introduced in this technical information sheet.
Value benefits are supported with real data from construction projects and comparisons with other methods of construction.
