The building industry is continually evolving and technology is the driving force. Traditional building methods are no longer the only answer. Forward thinking architects, developers and builders are all moving toward innovative, alternative, fast-track, energy efficient methods of construction.
The need for high quality, durable yet affordable alternative building systems in Africa was identified, which led to the formation of Vela SBS in 2006. Vela SBS introduces the most advanced alternative building systems across all sectors of the building industry.
Vela SBS uses powerful intuitive software and state-of-the-art machinery to design and fabricate the following building systems:
U-TRUSS - Lightweight steel roof trusses, which are used on conventional or alternative buildings.
S-TRACK - Lightweight steel frame walling systems for commercial, retail & residential applications.
MODULA - Modular structurally insulated building panels for constructing houses, schools and clinics, which are robust and simple to erect.
VEL'EKHAYA - Relocatable building system for temporary or emergency housing.
