Howick’s Framing machines can be used to produce Light Weight Portal Framed Buildings. These machines have the added advantage of being able to produce any office accommodation that may be required and integrating it into the structure of the building. The portal frame design offers a rapid building solution that is ideal for small to medium sized buildings.

1. Portal frame design is drawn as per Cad example. alt
2. The Intermediate joists and purlins are also designed using the framing removing the need to outsource components.

3. The components are produced by the roll former and can be delivered to site as completed frames, semi-assembled components or flat packed for on site assembly.

(flat pack is perfect for sites where access is limited.)

4. Once the frames are assembled the portals and end walls are stood and connected with the joining lattice frames giving the main structure of the building.

5. The external wall panels are then positioned adding strength to the structure. alt
6. The roof panels are then secured to complete the structure ready for cladding and finishing.
7. Office space can easily be constructed as stand alone or structurally attached using the same framing. Allowing the entire unit to be produced with a single Framing Machine. alt
