VALIDATION GUIDE Following the success of the LSFA’s Specification & Engineering Guide, which is freely available to download on our website – our next LSF advice document to be published is the Technology Validation Guide for light steel frame construction. Covering an accreditation overview for infill, oversail, panelised and modular systems – this guide offers architects and specifiers, insurers and warranty providers a summary of light steel frame accreditations, regulatory requirements, testing protocols for validation and details of warranty and testing providers together with a glossary of terms and FAQ’s. The Technology Validation Guide will be launched at Futurebuild - where you can pick up a copy. Light steel framing systems augment the construction industry with a spectrum of benefits from offering predictability of costs and programme to reducing risk and enhancing building safety. The versatility of steel offers architects the freedom to achieve their most ambitious visions. Building owners value its adaptability and the light open spaces are ideal for reconfiguring or extending with minimal disruption.
