Innovative Construction Technology
The future of the construction industry

The Fitidis Group recognizes the value that LGSF brings to the construction industry and is dedicated to maximizing this revolutionary technology by working with partners across the globe to revolutionize the construction industry.We are also dedicated to bringing to our partners the most advanced roll-forming process available in the world today along with all other associated processes that it would take to build an innovative and cost effective buildings of the highest quality.

A steel-framed house produced using F.G.C's Steel Frame Business Solution can be completed in approximately 1/3 of the time of a conventional brick and mortar home, again leading to more profitable projects. Steel frames are extremely strong and lightweight, requiring less material than timber or block methods leading to cost savings.

-Time and coast effective- production on site
- Material Strength- galvanized steel
- Optimal solutions according to HSE requirements.
- Accurate precision buildings.
- High quality control
- Eco Friendly -100% recyclable Made in Uganda

PRODUCTION ACCURACY The design and production being computer controlled has an accuracy level of +-0.8mm in every 6 m length of structure once assembled. All section are cut to length, web-notched, lip-notched, dimple-punched, swaged and service holes could be provided at any required level. Each member in the structure is identified through a print numbering each wall and section within that wall. All manufacturing operations are done in a single run at rate of 500 lm/hr

Methodology of construction with L.G.S.F. L.G.S.F. (Light, Gauge, Steel, Framing) is, made out of computerized productions of Galvanized steel studs, assembled and erected with specific bolds on a concrete slab.
1.The Engineer/designers and his team are preparing the drawings to be transferred to the production machine's computer. The design and production are being computer controlled with the FRAMECAD program.
2.Mobilization of production machines on site: The first team is working on manufacturing of the galvanized steel studs according to the relevant layouts .
3.At the same time, the second team is preparing and pouring the concrete slab. All studs sections are cut to length, web-notched, lip-notched, dimple-punched, swaged and services holes are provided at any required level.
4.The third team are assembling and screwing together the steel studs, to make the, A) wall panels, B) ceiling panels, C) roof panels and D) roof trusses. Each member of the structure is identified trough a print numbering for each wall and section.
5.The fourth team are erecting the assembled panels on the concrete slab and finalizing the complete structure
6.At the same time of the panel's erection, another team is producing our innovative SSP (Standing Seem Panels) roof sheets.
7.Plumbers and electricians are preparing the water and electric lines.
8.Team of masons are plastering the external walls.
9.Internal teams are fixing the gypsum boards on the ceiling and internal partitions walls.
10.At same time of the internals finishing, other team are producing and preparing the frames and PVC windows.
11.Final steps are to fix the floor tiles, electrical and sanitary fixtures, doors and windows and last the paint.

Steel possesses the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material being used today - including timber and block enabling less material wastage and improved margins. Steel's inherent strength can be used to place trusses further apart while still being structurally sound enabling increased profitability. Take advantage of the latest design trends for profitable business development. Steel frames and trusses allow trends such as open plan living and interior walls to be placed without load-bearing considerations to be met.
