Smart frame- An Economical and Effective Prehab Design Solution

SmartFrame machine

1. What is a prehab house?

A prefabricated house, also known as a pre-engineered steel building, is a building where materials of it are manufactured in a factory and then delivered and assembled on site.

The search for a solution to manufacture steel bars for prefabricated houses with many different profiles but still ensuring safety for the customers has been increasing due to the increasing demands for prefabricated houses for real estate investment and resorts in recent years. To help production units and project investors to construct and operate more efficiently, ensuring the accuracy, flexibility in dismantling and avoid the loss of construction materials is very important. After a series of research and testing, Vietsteel is proud to introduce a new prehab construction solution that is different to the traditional method, the SmartFrame solution.

2. What is the SmartFrame solution?

SmartFrame solution is a solution that was created using the designs, manufacturing and construction of light steel buildings to replace tradition construction methods and was made possible by Smartframe machines and a specialized design software

Smartframe machines are a type of machine that rolls steel products into the correct shape and size according to the designs and drawings made. This is an advanced technology that has been applied to countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Canada, etc.

Softwares used in the Smartframe solution includes:
-A light steel frame design software to extract the estimated volume and cost.
-A software to convert the drawing file to an NC code.
-A monitoring software to control the machine used.
