Commercial Fit-Outs

Commercial applications of steel framing are wide and varied encompassing both the load bearing and non-load bearing applications.

Typical usage examples include:

  • Shop fitting
  • Office fitouts
  • Apartment building internal walling
  • Façade panels
  • Hospital fitouts
  • Hotel construction
  • Casino construction
  • Retirement villages

Howick framing machines allow for rapid and accurate precision for all the required framing panels. Panels can be designed in a variety of ways, but usually require a site measure for the easiest install.

  1. Panels can be created on site while doing the site measure with simple Howick panel software.
  2. Utilising the BIM model to design the panels, either supplied by the main contractor with all the M&E design or from a simplified model. See our software page to find all the tested Howick CSV compatible software options.
  3. Point cloud scanning is gaining popularity and this allows for complete dimensional confidence in your design.

Once the panels are designed, they can be either flat packed for delivery to site, panelised at the factory for installation or to be run onsite using our FRAMA custom trailer solution.

Howick FRAMA machines come with all the tools needed for framing connections, including service holes and bolt holes. Allowing service runs and panel to building connections to be pre-defined for time savings.

Optional tooling such as deflection header slots can be specified to give adjustability to the panels for easier installation.
