7 Reasons To Believe LGSF Is Sustainable

The construction sector is responsible for 37% of carbon emissions and climate change, according to the Global Report for Buildings and Construction published in 2021 by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) 2021. This alarming situation has created a need for us to move towards eco-friendly construction materials. As the demand for energy-efficient and faster construction solutions is increasing, Light Gauge Steel Framing (LGSF) companies in India are gaining momentum. 

With the sustainable transformations undergoing in the construction industry, LGSF technology has gained popularity as an environment-friendly alternative to traditional building materials. In this blog, let’s explore 7 reasons why LGSF is considered a sustainable construction option over RCC construction methods.



- Recycling & Reusability 

As compared to traditional construction methods, LGSF structures contain high recycling and reusability potential. These reusable steel components reduce wastage as well as the demand for raw materials. LGSF modular structures can be transported easily and installed with environment-friendly fabrications, which promotes a sustainable life cycle. 

- High-Speed Construction

The LGSF manufacturers in India have understood the advantages of prefabrication and modular construction. Assembling cut steel parts on-site results in 2x faster construction as compared to traditional methods. This process of on-site assembly leads to less consumption of energy during construction. Prefab construction also minimises disturbances as the structures are constructed under a factory-controlled environment, making it an ideal choice for sensitive urban locations and sustainable construction practices.

- Reduce Carbon Emissions 

Using LGSF for construction considerably reduces carbon emissions compared to traditional materials like concrete and wood. Steel production emits less greenhouse gases than cement production, one major factor in reducing the carbon footprint of buildings.

According to a study by the Steel Recycling Institute, recycling steel in construction leads to saving approximately 2.5 tons of CO2 emissions per ton of steel used. It reveals a great deal of environmental benefits achieved through LGSF and its contribution to the mitigation of climate change.

- Withstand Extreme Weather Conditions 

The inherent strength of steel makes LGSF systems resilient and sturdy. They can withstand harsh weather conditions, earthquakes, and other natural calamities better than traditional construction substances. As a result, LGSF homes or constructions have a longer lifespan. This characteristic of LGSF technology makes it a safe choice for construction. 

- Water Conservation 

LGSF technology minimises water consumption during the construction process. Unlike traditional materials like concrete, steel no longer requires water for curing or mixing, resulting in considerable water savings. Water scarcity is a global issue, and adopting LGSF can play a crucial role in conserving this precious resource. Additionally, minimal maintenance requirements of steel-framing construction further contribute to long-term water conservation efforts. 

- Strong & Lightweight 

One of the greatest advantages of LGSF is its high strength-to-weight ratio. Steel offers the necessary strength while being lightweight, allowing efficient use of materials and reducing the general load on the foundation.

This feature of LGSF leads to the use of fewer materials, reducing resource intake and transportation requirements. The lightweight nature of LGSF is also a blessing for construction business owners as it requires lesser machinery and labour force. 

- Longer Lifespan 

LGSF structures showcase incredible durability and resistance to corrosion, leading to an extended lifespan compared to conventional construction materials. Steel does not corrode or get infected with pests, ensuring that LGSF structures maintain their quality for a prolonged duration. The selection of steel building material plays a fundamental role in the longevity of the structure. Nest-In prefab construction solutions offer products using high-quality steel, ensuring exceptional durability to give design life of minimum 50 years.

As the construction sector moves in the direction of sustainable practices, light gauge steel manufacturers in India are championing the LGSF technology. Tata Steel Nest-In’s modular building construction solutions with LGSF consume 48% less fresh water, reduce greenhouse-related impact by 53%, and offer several important environmental benefits compared to RCC Construction. With attributes like resource efficiency, decreased carbon emissions, quicker production times, advanced strength efficiency, stronger structural integrity, recycling ability, and water conservation advantages, LGSF holds the potential to revolutionise the Indian construction landscape.
