Four types of steel framed and steel clad houses have been

classified by the BRE [Harrison, H "Steel framed and steel clad

houses: inspection and assessment" Building Research

Establishment, Garston, 1987]:

Type 1: Framed, with outer leaves of brick or other masonry, or

clad with render on mesh

Type 2: Framed, concrete panel clad

Type 4: Load bearing panels

Type 3: Framed, sheet clad

The simplified diagrams presented above are based on this

classification system. All present-day light steel frame housing

systems are based on the 'Type 1' pattern.
