Our three building methods include BrickHybrid, Steel Framed and Double Brick. Let’s take a closer look...
a.k.a Brick veneer
This method of building is a relatively new. An epic combination of brickwork (on the outside) and steel frames made from TRUECORE® steel (on the inside). With plasterboard and insulation added to the mix, the BrickHybrid method provides great energy efficiencies, keeping you warmer in the winter and cooler in WA's sweltering summers. Another plus to BrickHybrid is that it offers the best results of all the building methods in regards to sound-proofing. In the current market, this method is both time and cost-effective.
This method of construction has been utilised for decades in rural and remote parts of WA, and over in the East Coast. We think its time we caught up so we use only the best steel trusses and wall frames made from TRUECORE® steel, combined with Primeline cladding, plasterboard and insulation. This method is second to BrickHybrid in terms of thermal performance and we think a silver medal 'aint so bad!
This method is the most traditional building method in WA. Double brick (or brick cavity) homes offer fairly decent acoustic properties, meaning you'll enjoy a reduction in noise pollution (sounds, singing, blender, beats etc.) However, brick’s thermal qualities aren’t as quite good as our BrickHybrid or Steel Framed methods. Due to innovation in steel construction, the industry is slowly saying goodbye to Grandfather double brick.
