Metal framing with a lightweight design
Light Gauge Steel Framing, LGSF, based in North Yorkshire, UK, designs and builds metal framing that combines structural strength with a lightweight design.
LGSF supplies bundled, paneled and modular systems for residential, commercial and industrial constructions, being one of the major suppliers to the largest light gauge steel frame users in the UK.
Easy import and export of any file format
Vertex has made the design job easier in several ways. According to Mr. Ian Cade, Technical Director at LGSF, the service3D environment allows a smooth design development process between the company and the customers. LGSF is also satisfied with the importing and exporting of various file formats, including IFC, allowing effortless cross-checking of associated building elements with other suppliers and designers.
From repetitive tasks into a mouse click
“With help of the Vertex development team, we can customize the software to incorporate our bespoke design elements, reducing repetitive and time-consuming design tasks into a single mouse click”, Mr. Cade explains.
“Our development as a company has benefited greatly from using Vertex software, especially from having the local support team to assist with our development and queries”, he adds.
LGSF has experience in several AutoCAD products, but was first introduced to Vertex when buying a new framing machine. Today, Vertex is used in presales, project drafting and design development, as well as in creating production and assembly drawings.
The company is growing with a new facility of 24,000 square feet, and is preparing a new product launch for the third quarter of 2015. “Our success is based on attention to detail and the ability to respond to our customers’ requests and requirements quickly. The loyalty of our valued customers has been won by supplying quality products at a fair market price”, Mr. Cade explains.
