L’ossature d’acier supplantera-t-elle la structure de bois ?

September 2015, CASA

Actuellement, moins d’un pour cent des nouvelles résidences sont construites avec une ossature d’acier. Malgré tout, plusieurs croient que la donne changera d’ici quelques années et que l’ossature d’acier, si elle ne supplante pas la structure de bois, deviendra à tout le moins aussi populaire.

L’usage de l’acier dans la construction n’est pas nouveau. Tous les gratte-ciel sont là pour en témoigner, comme le très célèbre Empire State Buiding de New York construit de janvier 1930 à mai 1931. Mais si l’ossature d’acier a de l’âge dans les secteurs commercial et institutionnel, il en est tout autre dans le résidentiel, du moins ici au Québec, contrairement à l’Europe qui en fait usage depuis belle lurette.

BONE Structure is an extremely smart and precise way to assemble a home. Using a patented steel structure system, machined with the same technology used for aircrafts and automobiles, BONE Structure eliminates the building process and instead allows workers to assemble a solid, high performance home.
