Sigmat are the UK leaders in steel framed structures, offering a cost-efficient and faster alternative to traditional building methods. Here at BrightSPACE, we are excited to be working alongside Sigmat to design a new range of bespoke luxury homes that benefit from less than two weeks on-site build time. Using a steel frame for the structure and solid, concrete slabs for the floors, Sigmat are looking to set a new standard for high-quality, customisable, steel frame houses.
Over the last few weeks, the team have been working with Sigmat to produce three standard steel frames in 350m2, 445m2, and 660m2 with a variety of architectural finishes in contemporary, Georgian and a hybrid style. Through offering a range of optional extras, potential clients can then customise each house as they wish, providing the perfect bespoke home to suit individual preferences.
Why Steel Frame Construction?
Using new technology to ensure accuracy, precision and guaranteed timescales compared to traditional bricks and mortar solutions. The Sigmat Bespoke Housing solution boasts speed of build as a key benefit - with up to 660sqm framing installed onsite in just 14 days, and follow-on trades able to commence earlier than traditional - providing programme security and reduced timescales.
As a key solution in MMC and Offsite construction, light gauge steel framing is fully recyclable. There is also a the advantage of a reduced fire risk vs. the traditional approach of timber framing, with the concrete floors adding an extra level of protection. Using concrete floors also improves the deadening sound quality between ground and first floors. The durability allows for larger loads to be applied to the floors (for example heavier baths etc.) while also having great heat prevention and retention properties.
