Designing modern housing has always been competitive as builders and buyers alike grew more passionate about trendy and urban designs.
This positions beauty as an essential element for home buyers. For building designers, various considerations are weighted in to achieve that on-trend design, such as the creative use of building materials, modular building methods, affordability, and long lastingness.
In this session, our guest speakers will be covering a stretch of topics; beginning with the fundamentals and aesthetic possibilities of steel solutions, to how these solutions contribute to the design thinking and construction of some on-trend housing projects. We’ll dwell deeper into both design and technical aspects, spanning across the colours, finishings and technology of coated steel, and how it could coalesce with different steel solutions to meet aesthetics and performance requirements. We’ll also explore contemporary building methods in achieving modern homes with more affordability, efficiency, and durability.
