Training course for BUILDING CONTRACTORS of light steel frame buildings:

Gauteng, 6 – 11 March 2017

Background: Light steel frame building is rapidly growing in popularity in Southern Africa. A recent survey has shown that the volume of LSFB has grown significantly during the past few years, notwithstanding the adverse conditions in the building industry.

The Southern African Light Steel Frame Building Association (SASFA) was established to develop the light steel frame building industry in Southern Africa. Supported by all the major players in this industry, SASFA strives to establish desirable quality standards in all facets of the LSF building process.

In order to ensure quality in buildings, training of all role players in the value chain is of paramount importance. Training courses for building contractors, designers and inspectors are presented.

Successful completion of the course for Building Contractors will enable attendees to correctly erect a simple LSF structure, and to plan and supervise installation of cladding, lining, insulation and services.

Who should attend? The course is aimed at new as well as practising builders and building contractors of light steel frame buildings. Attendees must at least have passed Grade 12, and be able to read building plans. We have had architects, engineers and senior managers attend the course, to develop fundamental knowledge of the process.

Course content: the course covers all aspects of LSFB, including practical work – trainees will erect a small LSF building:

  • Steel frames: properties of steel, manufacturing of steel frames, setting out and erection

  • Installation of external cladding, and

  • Internal lining, insulation and services

The six day course will be presented by SASFA, in co-operation with Marley Building Systems, Saint-Gobain and Everite. The attendance fee of R7 300 covers a set of course notes, refreshments and light lunches daily. A certificate of successful completion will be issued to qualifying candidates.

Please complete the attached registration form if you wish to attend the course. Also, feel free to forward this invitation to others whom you think may be interested to attend. Act now – we can accept only 20 applications!
