Unprecedented demand for new homes in South Australia has naturally placed significant challenges within the building industry including accessing trades and material shortages nationwide. Rivergum Homes has a strategic long-term partnership with local South Australian steel framing manufacturer Maxispan, which provides the customers with the opportunity to build their dream home with timber or steel frame backed with a lifetime structural warranty.
The industry is confronted by both a surge in demand for timber for home building as well as a shortage of supply. Rivergum Homes have taken the proactive step to introduce steel framing into the business to provide our customers with increased certainty for commencement and completion dates. Victor Said Founding Director of the Rivergum Group, says ”the step towards steel framing was aimed to not only provide more choice for our customers but importantly guarantee timing compliance in the construction phase.”
From the ground up, the house frame is more than just another stage in the building process. Building homes that stand the test of time requires commitment, experience and, of course, choosing the right materials from the start. “We are using the proven Australian-Made BlueScope Truecore steel frame product that is manufactured for us here in South Australia by Maxispan. We have been field-testing the product for several years and now have a strong track record for building in either timber or steel without complicating the process.”
Rivergum Homes is one of the very few Australian homebuilders able to offer customers in South Australia the choice of steel or timber-framed construction concurrently. Steel frame is a high-value option, which allows us to continue to deliver customers dream homes across South Australia.
