Engineering, Detailing & Planning
LifeTec provides comprehensive engineering and detailing services to take you from an architectural design to a framed structure in as little as 6 weeks. Our methodologies are 80% frontloaded to our planning stage, where we build your entire project, stud-by-stud, in a virtual space before it even reaches our manufacturing equipment. Our planning services include:
- Structural engineering and detailing.
- Complete shop drawings stamped for permit applications.
- Building envelope consulting
- Installation consulting to achieve lockup after framing is completed.
Residential Homes & Developments
LifeTec can take any home designed for wood framing and re-engineer it to use our steel as a direct substitute. Our system offers highly versatile design, fast, accurate and cost-efficient production, and installation can be in as little as 25% of the time. Waste is also reduced to virtually nothing; whereas, wood framing typically generates 20%. That means for every four homes built, a fifth could have been constructed from the linear feet of waste if it was built with our system.
These efficiencies are then compounded significantly for residential developments, allowing developers to provide a far superior product, while requiring less resources and generating far less headaches and deficiencies.
Mid-Rise, Multi-Family & Mixed-Use
LifeTec's system offers an extensive range of benefits for mid-rise construction when directly compared to wood or concrete. Direct material and installation savings over concrete can be up to 40%, while remaining relatively comparable to wood. When compared to both, the time savings and additional downstream logistical efficiencies thoughout the rest of the project are significant, and will ultimately generate sizable savings.
In addition, builders can enjoy insurance savings up to 70% over wood framing, while having the peace of mind that the building will not burn down during construction.
Institutional, Commercial & Industrial
LifeTec's rapid, design-led construction methodologies can help local, provincial and federal governments construct high-quality, economical, institutional buildings quicker and more cost-effectively.
Commercial and Industrial buildings can also be constructed more efficiently and cost-effectively than traditional heavy-gauge steel, concrete or wood structures.
Infill for High-Rise & Structural Steel
LifeTec's ability to utilize its panels within a 3" Deep Leg Nested Deflection Track, removes the need for timely slotted track installations. This creates enormous time and waste efficiencies, generating 0 waste, and typically installing in 25% of the time when compared to slotted track projects.
For high-rise construction, builders will receieve 22 gauge structural steel infill panels, installed for the same price as what they are now paying for flimsy 25 gauge. For other deflection framing projects, builders can feel confident that the cost will not be more than their traditional methods, but their project will be completed in a fraction of the time.
Affordable / Assisted Housing & Modular
LifeTec framing allows for quick and accurate construction at minimized cost, and demand can be met faster than traditional methods. By using a design-led process that facilitates repeatable designs, our construction methodologies are faster, more efficient and produce far less waste than traditional methods.
Our framing system provides a high-quality, extremely durable building which will last significantly longer than a wood structure, while still have less environmental impact before and after the building process is complete.
LifeTec can also accommodate any modular project. Whether a collection of units to be assembled onsite, worker accommodations or specialized pods, LifeTec can provide time and cost savings for your project.
