We can only be successful, if we make our clients successful
Trumod offer a design service for Light steel framing and roof structures. Our design office specialises in the framing market and have a number of successful projects to prove our competence in dealing with the structural complexity of modern architecture.
We offer the service of enhancing building plans into a live architectural image. This offers the prospective end user an opportunity to “walk through” their building and get a feel for the design, special layout and other features.
Where clients are not well versed in the use of Light steel framing, Trumod could on their behalf inspect the installation and comment on the technicalities of the design and erection process. This service is purely for informative purposes and does not meet the requirements for the structural certification of the building. As an alternative the client can call on the services of SASFA – the “watch dog” of the light steel framing industry. In all cases a fee would be applicable.
We contract a variety of services in to offer our clients an expanded package. The structural integrity of the building has to be “certified” by an engineer or architect. This process starts once concept drawings are accepted. Should you need the services of an engineer or architect – we would review the basic design and propose a suitable candidate.
As an “alternative building method” – light steel framing has a distinct advantage to offer a “GREEN” build. In general the building will be erected with significantly less waste, cost effective recyclable materials and quicker than conventional brick and mortar structures.
This construction method lends itself well to effective insulation. The sustainability of our environment is however not only reliant on these attributes. The longer term effect of building in light steel frame is not only in the cost saving due to using less electricity but the effect electricity generation has on our environment.
In order to add value to the industry over and above the various building systems that we manufacture and supply, Trumod operates a training campus which specialises in training building contractors and their staff.
This ensures that Trumod’s different systems are utilised to maximum effect. Those attending training are coached in all aspects of the construction process, from laying concrete slabs to erecting the steel frames, the various panels, and assembling and erecting the lightweight roof structures.
In addition, we will train them to assemble a complete roof, from putting in the insulation to installing the roof covering, be it tiling or sheeting. Although we train in all aspects of construction, our particular emphasis is on alternative building technologies.
While we do not provide a contracting service ourselves, as our focus is on manufacture and supply, we believe that our training college fulfils an important need in the market for assisting in skills development.
