FRAMECAD in Action

FRAMECAD site in UAE

Carnegie Construction used the FRAMECAD system to construct a new building at Emirates Park Zoo, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The site had narrow access that restricted construction options, but the FRAMECAD system and its ability to group frames by zones helped make the project a fast success.

From the start of production, it took six employees just ten days to install all necessary frames.

Watch FRAMECAD in Action: Cutting Build Time by 75%

FRAMECAD_Jackson

FRAMECAD was used by Douglass Colony to help construct a 90-unit apartment complex in Jackson, Wyoming, US. In just four months, Douglass Colony designed, produced, and installed the trusses and panels for all four floors of the apartment complex.

Thanks to FRAMECAD, the steel framing was completed in a quarter of the time it would take for traditional framing.
