Chances are that when you’ve heard cold-formed steel (CFS) construction methods described, that cost savings have been heavily emphasized as a major advantage.
What you might not be so aware of is just where these cost savings lie and how a considerable amount of these savings can be found above and beyond simply the steel structure building cost alone.
The major CFS cost savings are cleverly explained in an infographic designed by BuildSteel.org, one of the pre-eminent cold formed steel knowledge bases in North America.
BuildSteel.org provide leading cold formed steel-related information, to help those working in the construction industry succeed.
In this blog post we take a close look at this infographic that shows all the direct and indirect costs savings achieved when using CFS construction. Savings relating to scaffolding, risk insurance, material durability, sprinklers, security, labor and more are examined below.
Cost savings at a glance
As CFS is noncombustible it has a low fire risk. As some sites require fire-related site security, CFS can help avoid that and it also reduces the need for as many sprinklers.
Performance for less
It’s exciting to have CFS’s variety of cost savings so clearly displayed in this infographic. Cold formed steel is not only a practical and flexible construction solution, it’s a clear winner when it comes to minimizing expenses, and shows that you don’t need to compromise on performance to save on cost.
