The Opportunity for Architects

Since the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, design and construction is back at full speed and everyone is hungry to get out there and showcase their prowess.

In the UAE, the recent Net Zero by 2050 target means sustainability will only become ever more increasingly important, just like it will across the globe. For architecture, the opportunity for it to act as a symbol for cultural progress has arguably never been more important.

Introducing Hadley Steel Framing

Manufacturing in the heart of the UAE’s business hub of Jebel Ali to recognised local, British and international standards and tolerances, we are part of the Hadley Group, an international innovator of optimum performance steel envelope and framing products. Our expertise in cold roll forming has resulted in us leading the GCC lightweight steel framing market.

In the UAE, its historic availability means there is a traditional reliance on concrete blockwork to be used as constructions’ inner leaf. This automatically puts limitations on design and build aspirations, including sustainability. However, by using Hadley Steel Framing instead, architects have been making their aspirations a reality.

The Hadley Steel Frame is a secondary structural Steel Frame System (SFS). It makes use of C and U sections to form a lightweight steel inner leaf of the external building facade. The framework can then be insulated and clad on both sides with a multitude of other products including, but not limited to, insulated render and rainscreen cladding.

Make Your Statement

The Hadley Steel Frame is suitable for a range of building types and has been used across a range of sectors including residential, healthcare, educational, commercial and industrial, both in the UAE and in the UK.

Whatever your aspirations, Hadley are here to support you. We’re here to help you make your statement.
