BIM and 3D modelling in light steel construction (P407)

In Building Information Modelling (BIM), a virtual model of a building is created digitally, and is shared with the parties in design, construction, management and operation. The BIM models contain precise geometry and data needed to support the construction, manufacture and procurement activities through which the building is realised. BIM is readily utilised with light steel framing because 3D models are commonly used in design and digital information is used for production of the individual components used in light steel framing systems. Available as a Free PDF download.

Value benefits of light steel construction (P409)

Light steel construction is used extensively in the UK in a wide range of building applications. The precise nature of the value benefits of light steel construction will depend on the application and project specifics. However, there are generally three over-riding value benefits associated with light steel construction; speed, light-weight and quality. These lead to supplementary advantages, such as early completions, fewer snags and minimal re-work. P409 Available as a free PDF download.

Light steel load-bearing walls (P408)

Light steel load-bearing walls are used in light steel framing and modular construction. The light steel walls are fully load-bearing because they support floor loads, loads from walls above and resist lateral wind loads. They generally include bracing to provide lateral stability to the building. Light steel loadbearing walls use vertical C sections (studs) of typically 100 mm depth. Both internal and external walls may be designed as load-bearing. P408 Available as a free PDF download.

Light Steel Modular Construction (ED014)

This Information Sheet reviews the various forms of building modules constructed using light steel framing and presents examples of where modular construction has been used. It reviews the basic principles of design using modular construction and addresses the basic dimensions, design requirements and interfaces with cladding, services and other details.
