Can you tell me more about your building system and technology?Our building system is based on cold formed steel (CFS) framing, which is a lightweight, strong, and durable material that can be easily shaped and assembled into various structures. CFS framing is ideal for low rise buildings, as it offers many advantages over traditional materials such as wood or concrete, such as: • Faster and easier construction • Higher quality and precision • Greater design flexibility and customization • Lower cost and maintenance • Better performance and safety • Reduced environmental impact Our technology is what makes our building system truly innovative and efficient. We use advanced software and hardware to automate and integrate every step of the building process, from design and engineering, to manufacturing and installation. Our technology includes: • Digital architectural & structural design software that allows us to create 3D models and drawings of any building type and style, and optimize them for CFS framing. • Full panelized manufacturing equipment that uses CNC machines to cut, bend, punch, and assemble CFS frames into ready-to-install panels, with high accuracy and quality control. • On-site installation tools and methods that enable us to erect the panels quickly and safely, with minimal waste and disruption. • DEEPBLUE SMARTHOUSE operating system that connects all the software and hardware components together, and provides real-time data and feedback throughout the project lifecycle. With our building system and technology, we can deliver any kind of low rise building for residential and commercial use, such as houses, townhouses, Adu, park-home, Granny flat, bungalows, villas, homes Tiny homes, Manufactured homes, prefab homes etc.

We also use our software to generate a preliminary design proposal for your project, which shows you how your building will look like and what features and specifications it will have. We try to make our quote and proposal as accurate and detailed as possible, but they are subject to change depending on the final design and contract.
How does CFS framing compare to traditional materials like wood or concrete?CFS framing has many advantages over traditional materials like wood or concrete, especially for low rise buildings. Here are some of the main benefits of CFS framing: • Faster and easier construction: CFS frames are prefabricated in our factory and delivered to the site as ready-to-install panels, which reduces the construction time and labor by up to 50%. CFS frames are also lighter and easier to handle than wood or concrete, which simplifies the transportation and installation process. • Higher quality and precision: CFS frames are manufactured using CNC machines that ensure high accuracy and consistency. CFS frames are also resistant to warping, shrinking, cracking, rotting, or termite damage, unlike wood. CFS frames also have better dimensional stability and strength than wood or concrete, which means they can withstand higher loads and stresses without deformation or failure. • Greater design flexibility and customization: CFS frames can be easily shaped and assembled into various configurations and geometries, which allows us to create any building type and style, from traditional to modern. CFS frames also have a smaller cross-section than wood or concrete, which means they can create larger spans and openings, and allow more natural light and ventilation into the building. • Lower cost and maintenance: CFS frames are more cost-effective than wood or concrete, as they require less material, labor, and equipment. CFS frames also have lower maintenance costs, as they do not need painting, sealing, or treating like wood. CFS frames also have a longer lifespan than wood or concrete, as they do not deteriorate or corrode over time. • Better performance and safety: CFS frames have superior thermal and acoustic insulation properties than wood or concrete, which means they can provide better comfort and energy efficiency for the occupants. CFS frames are also non-combustible and fire-resistant, unlike wood. CFS frames also have higher seismic and wind resistance than wood or concrete, which means they can withstand natural disasters better. • Reduced environmental impact: CFS frames are more eco-friendly than wood or concrete, as they are made from recycled steel that can be recycled again at the end of its life. CFS frames also produce less waste and emissions during manufacturing and installation, as they are prefabricated in our factory and require less cutting and drilling on site. CFS frames also have a lower carbon footprint than wood or concrete, as they use less energy and resources during production and operation.
