Light steel framing has been used for the Greenwich Millennium

Village Phase 2b housing designed by Proctor and Matthews

Architects. An on-site rolling mill has been used to produce steel

components for the housing, which has been designed with a high

level of variety in both plan form and elevational treatment.

The main contractor for the build was Protec. The steel frame and

cladding system is by Powerwall, and consists of rendered

'Alulam' panels and cedar weatherboarding.

Protec's on-site factory for light steel frames uses a self-contained

Scottsdale rolling mill housed in a container. Frames are rivetted

through pre-punched holes by teams working in a temporary

factory, itself constructed with light steel framing.
