THE STRUCTURE

It is, without a doubt, a fundamental part of any building: the structure, with our system we have different types of structure and different ways of constructing, but in all cases, regardless of the construction system chosen, we seek to give them the strength to ensure that the homes that we deliver to our customers will be able to pass from generation to generation. Below what we believe the best way to construct a property and obtaining by using this method an almost indestructible property.

SOLID SYSTEM THE NEXT GENERATION BUILDING SOLUTIONS

SOLID SYSTEM 

A quality architectural design must be performed with quality materials and systems that can satisfy any requirements and overcome the challenges we face today. Our goal is to provide more effective building solutions by offering better performance than any traditional systems without increasing the costs and time and without affecting sustainability. Solid System offers a range of new generation building solutions based upon a different way of perceiving and approaching the construction process whose optimal results are guaranteed by a more professional and detailed planning of all of the construction phases and the higher quality of the materials involved.

MAIN ADVANTAGES

The main advantage of using Light Steel Framing technology as a structural system in building construction:

  • The elements constituting the system are standardized and industrially produced, where the raw material used, the manufacturing process and technical characteristics undergo strict quality control.
  • Durability and service life of the structure, thanks to the galvanizing process of the sheets from which the profiles are obtained.
  • High-speed construction; the pre-assembled frames can be delivered to the building site ready for erection.
  • Great flexibility in the architectural design, with no limits to the Architect’s creativity.
  • Sustainable system:
  • Greater dimensional accuracy and optimization of the structure with minimum waste.
  • Steel can be recycled without losing its properties.
  • Dry construction, thus minimizing the use of natural resources.

STRUCTURAL SYSTEM

The Light Steel Framing technology (LSF), as it is known Worldwide, is a structural system that consists of cold-formed “C” shaped galvanized steel profiles that are being assembled to compose structural wall panels, beams, trusses and other components or sub-structures. Being an industrialized system, Light Steel Framing allows manufacturing and erecting a dry-wall building very fast. To ensure that the system performs at its best, the sub-structures need to be correctly interrelated and the materials involved must be adequate. Skilled labour and a properly planned work are essential elements to achieve an optimal process schedule. It is also necessary that the dimensioning and calculation of the structures are carried out by Professional Technicians in order to ensure that the building can resist all efforts and stresses to which it is subjected.

VERTICAL ENVELOPING SYSTEM – Facade enclosure SSE 180

Formed by projecting one or several layers of INSULTERM 600 and thermal insulation, according to required services to the system. Once the conglomerate has set the facilities and the structure will be hidden and protected, creating a low monolithic element density, high resistance, with excellent thermal, acoustic and fireproof properties. The carrying capacity of the system can be dispensed with if it only requires its function as an external enclosure, in which case it may be used profiling galvanized non-bearing.

When all the modules have been placed together, assembled, the structural fill can be added. The installation of the infill panels creates a closed space, in which the structural material can be poured. Both light and high-density concretes can be used, as well as any other locally available material. At this point, some improvements can still be made.

The cement dries after 12 to 24 hours and then it is possible to dismount the scaffolds. It is the time to finish the panel’s installation process with the latest details or adjustments.

VERTICAL PARTITION WALL SYSTEM – Internal partitions SSE 120 and SS 100

This kind of solution is obtained by spraying one or more layers of INSULTERM 600. Once the conglomerate has dried up, the wiring and plumbing and the mesh will be hidden and protected, creating a low-density monolithic element assuring high strength, excellent thermal-acoustic and fire-retardant performance.

CLADDING COMPARISION

With a thickness of 18 cm and less than half the weight, the building solution SS 180 gives higher acoustic isolation, greater thermal insulation and increased fire resistance.

ADVANTAGES OF USING SOLID SYSTEM

A. TIME-SAVING

Construction times are dramatically reduced compared to any traditional systems thanks to:

The main structure and the cladding are built simultaneously unlike with traditional systems where it’s not possible starting the cladding works until the main structure is completed, thus eliminating formwork building and stripping times.

An accurate work planning reduces or even eliminates the risk of unexpected events on the building site.

No additional masonry work required for wiring and plumbing installation.

B. COST REDUCTION

Indirect costs (tool shed rental, warehouse, machinery, overhead during construction, etc.) and financial expenses are reduced by reducing construction time for the reasons described in the previous section.

Furthermore, also the direct costs are reduced:

No need to use auxiliary means for handling heavy loads.

No need for extended areas for material assembly.

Significant reduction of waste and labour costs for containers moving and landfill fees.

A lower specific weight of our mortar decreases the foundation costs as a lighter structure generates a reduced dead load on the ground, so lower amounts of concrete and iron are required.

C. EXCELLENT ENERGY RATINGS

D. IMPROVED STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOUR

CUSTOMER BENEFITS

CONSTRUCTION PHASES

During the early stages of the work, earthworks and foundations, we already prepare the cold-formed steel frames in our factory so that, once assembled, we will only have to move them to the building site to be erected.

Solid System does not use or need to wait for formwork setting times of concrete building construction as our structures are self-load-bearing.

Any additional masonry works for wall chasing are eliminated: no need to cut walls for cable channels and fill them up afterwards, thus saving time and labour.

In short and as expressed in the graph, Solid System saves time in the execution of the structure and the house cladding more than 50% compared to traditional systems.

VERSATILITY – No limits in design creativity

SOLID SYSTEM technology does not limit the design creativity thanks to the use of very versatile materials: lightweight steel frames, flexible insulation packs and spraying mortar.

COMPATABILITY WITH OTHER SYSTEMS

As previously illustrated, Solid System offers a perfect solution for load-bearing structures as well as for the cladding but can be used for non-structural purposes too. Therefore, in the event that the building is constructed with traditional materials such as reinforced concrete, hot-rolled steel or timber, Solid System can be the ideal cladding and finishing solution, providing its excellent thermal, acoustic and fire-retardant qualities.

QUALITY DOESN’T NECESSARILY HAVE TO BE AT THE ODDS WITH ECONOMY

Solid System offers as a range of quality solutions, contributing to improved comfort, thermal and acoustic efficiently yet without increasing the costs and giving more sustainable solutions. The quality of our building solutions on one hand and reduced costs involved on the other, allows Solid System to have the necessary versatility for both luxury housing and social housing applications.

SUSTAINABLE AND EFFICIENT ARCHITECTURE

We can define efficiency as the relationship between the resources used for a purpose and their achievement. It is commonly agreed that you have efficiency when it takes fewer resources possible to achieve a specific goal or, in other words, when you achieve more goals with the same or even fewer resources.

The range of solutions offered by Solid System allows reducing the resources involved in the building process, i.e. labour, additional tools and means, etc. yet achieving higher quality and more comfortable buildings in less time.

Furthermore, better thermal qualities and the elimination of thermal bridges help to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings.

Sustainable architecture demands a construction system that is effective and minimizes the use of natural resources.

Solid System is very user-friendly, simplifying the construction process without generating waste and limiting the use of machinery and consequently reducing CO2 emissions.
