Steel is the most recycled material on the planet. That’s why we use it to build frames. Alongside its efficient design, accelerated delivery and faster build, it minimises our carbon footprint – meaning we can develop sustainably, without unnecessary harm to our environment.

Constructing a better world, with steel

Our world is constantly developing. Our population is growing by 1.08% each year. Our demands change. We need more. More urbanisation. More infrastructure. More housing. We need it quicker. We need it now. But we also need to protect. We need to sustain. We need to harm our environment less – if we are to thrive.

Moving away from unsustainable development

Since the nineteenth century, our world has been learning. Reaching one scientific discovery, we declare we’ve discovered all that is to be found. And, then later we realise there’s more. A lot more.

Teaching in traditional construction has always centred on methods of brick, block and timber frame. However, these methods are becoming increasingly unsustainable, proving inefficient, uneconomical and detrimental to the environment.

Environmentally-friendly construction

An alternative is already needed. An alternative that meets the demands of infrastructure, cost-efficiency,  expediency – and perhaps most importantly, environmental sustainability. Because without a heavily-weighted consideration on our environment, in the construction industry, we risk being held widely responsible for climate change, ozone depletion, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, desertification and in general environmental degradation.

This responsibility is huge – and something that has a ripple effect through world economies and societies. Simply, we need to change.

Steel modular frame systems

Fortunately, emerging technologies and better connectivity are allowing us to adapt.

And at Steel Frame Homes, we are embracing this sustainable change in construction through steel modular frame systems, in the place of traditional materials like timber.

Did you know that nearly 90% of the steel in production today has been or will be recycled? This makes steel the most recycled material on the planet. In fact, the average new steel-frame home is constructed using the equivalent of 4 recycled cars. When you combine this with other inexhaustible recycled materials, each development can be constructed with anywhere between 35% and 90% recycled materials
