Fast and green, the Fabric Construction System™ was designed to be the most practical and scalable solution for the residential housing market.

The Fabric Construction System™ can benefit the planet in a meaningful way.

The Fabric Construction System™ can benefit the world in a meaningful way.


Structural steel is the premier green construction material. Its high recycled content and recycling rate exceed those of any other construction material.


Steel provides a strong, non-toxic framework for your new home with the added benefit of fire and wind safety to ensure your family is safe and secure.


The time to build a new home is now greatly reduced. Lightweight studs and panelized wall systems that are scrap-free, make building a breeze.

A factory-built, green construction system optimized for speed and strength.

Because steel is a positive conductor to the earth, the energy is conducted straight to the ground and is not released destructively within the frame as in conventional framing or cladding.

Electro-magnetic waves can diffract around steel as easily as timber. Waves pass through the spaces between the studs, allowing the use of all household appliances without any interference. Performance is no different to any other building.

In a properly constructed and insulated home with light steel framing, thermally induced movement is not an issue. Steel is engineered, inorganic, will not rot, warp, twist, bow, shrink or settle. There will be far more reduced instances of plaster or cornice cracking because steel doesn’t change state during it’s lifespan.

It will look better actually. Walls, ceilings and roofs do not have ripples or bumps in them and there are no “nail pops” in the plasterboard linings. Roofs of steel-framed homes do not sag over time, even under concrete tiles, so the finished job continues to look good. Steel house frames will not change or move over time, so gaps will not open up letting air in. Insulating products work by creating a barrier between temperatures. Over time, a frame which can settle and move will create openings, which will allow air to travel through, thus rendering insulating products far less effective. Steel will not settle over time, allowing other complementing products to continue performing how they were designed and specified. In fact, because of the light steel’s strength, you can design your home with larger open spaces whilst the exterior looks like any normal home – but in our case, much better.

A heavy weighted picture, which will require a bolt or hanger to be used, can be screwed straight into a stud. Studs are easily located with magnets.
