is a full service construction company that offers a total design, manufacture and construction solution. We specialise in Light Steel Frame Construction and have been building light steel frame structures since 2006. Light Frame Steel Modular systems form the basis of our methodology, but we take the approach of tailoring solutions to meet requirements, rather that forcing a system to fit a requirement.We use the most up to date technologies and hybridised building systems which emphasise cost and energy efficiency. Taking the requirements and location of the build into consideration, the company has a number of tools available in order to select the most appropriate for each specific build. SMC’s structural design capabilities set it apart in the market, allowing for total control of the building process. It also makes for faster and more cost effective building solution with no compromise on quality, specifically in remote environments. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, SMC Africa has experience in large scale greenfield development projects in Africa.
Sustainability is key to our building processes and the systems we use are sustainable by nature: Steel can be recycled and can be sourced from other recycled sources. Our buildings are well insulated, reducing costs for heating and cooling and comply with SANS 10400-XA & SANS 204 . Our designs can make use of other green technologies such as solar and passive solar design; heat pumps; insulating methods and grey water collection systems Our light steel frame structures are easy and cost effective to transport, thus greatly reducing our carbon footprint.
SMC is equipped to interpret the client and architects vision into well-detailed and engineered structures. We utilise new building technologies such as Framecad, 3D CAD, Rendering software, BIM and LSF engineering software in order to achieve this.
