Green Frame... changing how we build New Zealand

There’s nothing getting in the way of the builders offering Green Frame for their customers

Here's why...

• Certainty of delivery
• Zero site wastage
• Lighter on the planet and your back
• Pre-punched holes for ease of services
• Easy switch process from timber
• Suitable for all designs and materials
• No time wasting for drying
• Straight lines, square corners
• Built for NZ coastal - rust free
• Comes with full-service and install support
• No warping, sticky doors, or nail popping



How Green Frame works

We understand that builders are time-poor and should be freed-up to focus on the job.
So, we’ve made the switch to steel easy. From the start – we’ll share estimated wait-times and give you a team member to contact, so your build runs on time. 

The Green Frame process

Stage 1

Design and Engineering

Green Frame's solution is a design-led process, meaning that the need for skill to construct the building is more in the design stage rather than on-site. The System utilises world leading sophisticated design and engineering software that is incredibly accurate, reducing the need for engineer involvement during the detailed design, speeding up compliance, reducing engineering cost and minimising room for error on-site.


Stage 2

Manufacturer and Panelization

Green Frame's CFS frames and components are produced and fabricated from high quality NZ steel coils and are shaped at ambient temperatures by our roll-forming machines. We can be produced in large quantities and at high speed with consistent quality and precision. The wide range of advanced tooling functions within our system allow high productivity and versatile output to produce roof trusses, wall frames, and floor joists — all to exact measurements, saving time and costly wastage in the construction stage. Detailed design speeds up compliance, reduces engineering cost and minimises room for error on-site.

Stage 3

Construction

Green Frame supply frames and trusses pre-assembled, strong and straight, and clearly identifiable. No on-site welding or cutting is normally required. This means that the erection process is fast and simple – requiring less labor time on-site and heavy-lifting equipment. Steel frames do not absorb moisture so there is no delay waiting for frames to dry. This means minimised weather delays for rain, snow, or excessive heat, for example. CFS construction can offer a much more predictable construction schedule and less on-site cost than traditional construction methods. For example, as the material is lightweight, no heavy lifting equipment is needed on-site, frames, trusses and joists can typically be carried into place by on-site labor. Frames are made to precise dimensions meaning pre-made windows, doors and bathrooms will fit perfectly and quickly reduce engineering cost and minimising room for error on-site.
