Diverse materials are used throughout the construction industry to form different types of buildings and structures. There are often many key drivers for the choice of material; from aesthetics to structural strength, to speed of construction on site. In the Commercial, Residential and Educational sectors often a hybrid frame utilising more than one type of material offers considerable benefits to this type of construction.
Materials that particularly favour this type of construction are offsite manufactured materials such as timber and steel, both are manufactured to tight known tolerances. This maximises offsite manufacturing techniques and as they come together on site as bolted components.
