Cape Alternative Bulding Concepts

Cape Alternative Building Concepts provides high quality and cost effective light steel frame construction services to the greater Cape Town area. We offer architects and homeowners the ability to build the projects they want, without difficulties with materials and high costs, giving them the freedom to express their natural artistic flare and create unique functional spaces. Our structures are energy efficient, easy to maintain, cost effective, versatile and precision engineered quality.

Our use of non-traditional building methods incorporating light steel frame construction offers the opportunity to erect structures; residential, commercial or industrial of a higher quality and with less wastage and loss of work hours to weather, and to keep to the exact building specifications.


Our light steel frame buildings consist of structural wall frames and roof trusses, manufactured from cold-formed light-gauge galvanised steel sections. Exterior finishing is done to the client’s specifications from plaster or wood panelling, to sandstone or marble tiling.

Electricity, plumbing and insulation material are installed in the wall cavity making the addition of these services easier, faster and more cost-effective.

We complete overall construction in half the time and at lower cost. Our light steel frame buildings are also stronger, safer and require less maintenance minimising energy wastage during building operations, as well as during the lifetime of the building.

Our green, environmentally friendly building alternative, reduces our carbon footprint by up to 80% and allows us to apply future-orientated construction practices.
