LGSF Construction & Its Advantages For Sustainable Building

The recent advancements in construction technology and the growing need for building sustainable structures have resulted in the growth of prefab or modular construction worldwide. In the past few decades, prefab construction has gained a lot of traction due to its numerous benefits. Now construction professionals are choosing prefab construction over traditional construction for building residential, commercial, and industrial spaces. Over the years, there have been many advancements in the prefab space. Light Gauge Steel Framing (LGSF) is one of them. This article discusses LGSF construction and its advantages in detail. Also, this article features the initiative taken by Tata Steel Nest-In that focuses on building projects that are aligned with sustainability goals.

LGSF Construction: A Smart And Sustainable Way Of Building

Light gauge steel framing is a cutting-edge construction technique for building sturdy prefabricated steel structures. LGSF technique uses a premium galvalume steel frame to build load-bearing walls, roofing frames, walls between rooms, and floor slabs. Unlike traditional construction techniques, LGSF construction offers numerous benefits such as longevity, strength, and design flexibility. Besides these merits, it results in less wastage of material and higher overall quality.


Benefits of LGSF Construction

In comparison with other technologies, prefab construction using LGSF offers unmatched advantages. Here are some of them.

Robust and Durable 

LGSF construction excels at creating exceptionally strong and long-lasting structures. The steel used in LGSF construction has a high tensile strength, which is comparatively resistant to external pressure such as winds, earthquakes, and other impacts.

Additionally, LGSF construction is less prone to problems like shrinking, rotting, or warping, which are common in traditional building techniques.

Fast And Efficient Construction

Unlike conventional construction methods, prefab construction with LGSF significantly reduces construction time. Steel frames and other components are manufactured off-site and transported to the construction site. This allows other construction work to go on simultaneously without causing any kind of delay. Additionally, due to LGSF’s lightweight characteristics, it requires less labour to process, facilitates speedier on-site assembly, and reduces material waste, which further speeds up the entire construction process.Select students may also get an opportunity to work with Tata Steel Nest-In, as we hire individuals from the Academy based on the hiring requirements from time to time. This way Nest-In ensures availability of the skilled workforce to meticulously implement on the demanding projects in high-tech prefab construction sector. 

Design Flexibility

LGSF construction uses steel frames that offer unmatched design flexibility as they adapt to different architectural styles and design specifications. This feature enables architects and designers to create innovative and unique structures.

Sustainability and Environment Safety

Unlike traditional construction, LGSF construction uses techniques that are environment-friendly. Prefab construction with LGSF uses steel, which can be recycled and reused. This results in minimising waste, protecting natural resources, and reducing carbon footprints. Additionally, energy-saving measures like insulation, solar panels, and effective HVAC systems can be incorporated into LGSF structures to lower energy usage and reduce carbon emissions.

There is a need for newer, quicker, innovative and energy-efficient construction solutions to keep India moving forward to a smarter tomorrow. Through its steel-based modular building solutions, Tata Steel Nest-In contributes to this progress by serving across India and improving the quality of life for all.\
