EOS Gaining Recognition on a Global Scale!

It is not every day that you are invited to ’visita’ South America and in September we headed off for sunnier climes on a ‘knowledge transfer’ trip
of a lifetime.

EOS were invited to present the benefits of light gauge steel by evaluating the technical and economic benefits of using our Steel Frame Systems (SFS) and making cost, scheduling and performance comparisons with the traditional concrete builds that are so prevalent in the region. With 90% of the developments being built from concrete, both structural and infill panels and 35-45% of the concrete estimated to be non-structural – major construction companies are looking to adopt a technically more advanced approach.

As part of an Etex building performance knowledge transfer trip, EOS presented to Siena and SukSA in Chile – both traditional construction
companies and Gafisa in Brazil – a construction company who is currently researching the benefits of SFS with a particular interest in
adopting an offsite approach.

EOS MD Steve Thompson commented ‘It was a great privilege and pleasure to share our knowledge and technical expertise with such an engaging audience – gaining insight into other cultures and working practises was beneficial to all. The excellent feedback we received following the trip was truly gratifying.’
