Light Gauge Steel Houses

With over 40 years experience in the construction industry, Nexgen Construction ethos is to work with partners to deliver high quality homes at pace using our unique Light Gauge steel system.
Nexgen develops and supplies a range of light gauge steel housing solutions to the UK and African markets, using Light Gauge Steel (LGS) – a low cost construction technology. We can supply a “one stop solution” for all housing developments, including planning, infrastructure provisions and development.

NEXGEN LIGHT GAUGE STEEL

Nexgen LGS construction technology is a production system, where building elements are produced from galvanized steel using cold forming process. Once the building specifications have been agreed, the structural design is then processed and conveyed to the state of the art Structure ROBOT lines where it is produced. The walls, frame, roof, truss and other construction components are erected by means of profiles manufactured on the Structure ROBOT machinery lines. They are then bonded by fixings in the system to meet the individual project’s requirements/regulations. Once the completed frame system has been assembled at the construction site, the insulation and surface side mounting are then fitted using ecofriendly, fully natural materials. These materials are branded HEKIMPOR Technology (insulation) and Turksiding (surface side mounting – fibre cement technology). They are produced to A-1 fire rating standards, are non-combustible, and durable to varying climate conditions.

The most significant advantages of this system are as follows:

Long-lasting, durable and secure.
Meets and exceeds all current sound, heat and water insulation requirements.
Construction system whose prefabrication is carried out at the factory, provides capability for faultless and fast production.
Provides more efficient earthquake performance due to its flexibility and lightness.
Presents flexibility and elegant solutions in design.
Shortens construction period by virtue of its easy assembly.
Creates an opportunity for a cleaner construction site.
Constructions manufactured by galvanized steel are corrosion-resistant.
Eco-friendly - LGS buildings contain up to 90% of recycled materials.
Cost-effective and reduces foundations requirements on average by 2.5 times.
The standardisation in the production system provides quality and stability in the prices of materials.
The construction materials have high recycling efficiency and exceed Code for Sustainable Homes Standards.
Their higher strength allows greater spacing between members when compared to wood frame construction: about 24’’
(600mm) for LGS vs. about 16’’ or 20’’ (400 or 500mm) for wood. Fewer members translates to quicker construction times.

Design/Engineering

 We offer the one stop shop solution. Our RIBA architecture service will complete the design to meet all the local building regulations, working in conjunction with Nexgen specialised structural engineers which will prepare LGS framing detail to include a stability and safety checks according to the UK local standards. Loading calculations and construction engineering drawings will be provided for final approval.

Installation

We offer a fully integrated installation package including and not limited to first/secondary fix, electrical installation by qualified electricians, brickwork package if required by local authorities etc… Alternatively, we will provide onsite qualified supervisor to overlook the installation working in conjunction with other building contractors.
