15 Almond Huis

Almond House is a typical 100%, Turnkey, Light Steel Frame (LSF) construction project.

For this type of project, the ideal process would be an Architect and an Engineer familiar with LSF Construction whom we can refer. The Design is pre-engineered, a form 2 issued for council submission and the structure signed off by the Engineer on completion.

If your plans are already complete for another methodology, there is a simple, standard process to change to LSF.

A preferred soil testing Laboratory can also be recommended.

  • All LSF Building is compliant to the energy efficiency code SANS 10400 XA.
  • Thermal R values for exterior Walls 2.8 and Roof structures 3.4.
  • Pholaco Construction offer a choice of Structural Build (White Box) or Turn Key options.
