Providing a lighter, easier to erect alternative to steel or concrete primary frames, Hadley Steel Framing Galvframe is a complete, pre-panelised standalone steel frame structure, ideal for medium rise buildings across all commercial and residential sectors.
Enabling a reduction in build programme of up to 25%, this turnkey solution begins with the work of our in-house design and structural engineering team. The agreed solution progresses to our manufacturing facility for accurate rollforming of all sections. These are then hand assembled and delivered directly to site according to schedule.
KEY SYSTEM BENEFITS
The use of pre-engineered components ensures a robust and accurate engineered structure. The system has the flexibility to incorporate joisted or concrete floors and supports most external cladding systems.
Off-site fabrication of wall panels delivers a genuine fast track structure and means that erection is rarely delayed by adverse weather conditions. This early weather tightness allows cladding to be removed from the critical path.
Lift and stair cores are also formed from Galvframe structure, and stairs are provided as construction progresses to provide access to upper levels. Windows are supported directly from the Galvframe structure, allowing installation to follow one floor below structural frame progress.
Use of Galvframe also enables earlier commencement of other aspects of the build programme including:
Initial fire protection and ceiling grid (2 weeks after floor installation)
First fix M&E services (after ceiling grid)
Roof coverings (after roof structure)
Dry lining and internal non load bearing partitions
