History

For years, construction has been “going green”, so it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise when building owners ask you to develop

sustainable designs. Kitarch systems uses a Cold-formed steel (CFS) framing system which meets the highest sustainability

requirements set in all major green building standards and rating programs.

 

Cost Benefits:

 

The Structures are light-weight and accordingly do not require deep foundations.

Structural assembly is up to 12 times quicker than conventional construction approaches.

Little skilled labour is required in the construction of structure.

Local labour can be trained to build in under 2 weeks.

All materials and labour are sourced locally to reduce importation and transport costs.

No heavy lifting equipment is required in construction process.

kit arch structures are energy efficient and reduce energy bills by more than 30%.

Kit arch structures require little ongoing maintenance.

With reduced project completion timetables financing costs are greater reduced.

Design benefits

Can be used to construct a wide variety of structures

panels can be used in a multitude of applications including exterior, interior and party walls;

Multi-level floors; retaining walls, sound barriers, and structural roofing

can be used to construct residential dwellings, cold stores, warehouses, factories, school buildings, churches, offices and shops

Panel thicknesses and lengths can be varied to requirements allowing for variable wall floor to floor wall heights

Panels can be produced to be load bearing or light weight depending on their application

Walls can be curved and it is simple to design unusual openings

Structure such is portholes or other shapes as well as arches or unique shaped window openings

Building System integrates with other construction elements such as alternative roofing systems, door and window structures and if required can

Be used to compliment traditional super structures such as concrete columns and beams.

Structural Benefits

Low cost - major cost savings in labour, equipment and time

Strong - load bearing panels can be used for walls and floors

Durable - structure will last 50 years+

Fire resistant - standard panel has 2 hour fire rating 

Low maintenance – 

Energy efficient - cool in summer, warm in winter with high R-value insulating rating

Earthquake resistant - tested to 10 on Richter scale

Hurricane resistant - tested to 300 km winds
