We recently purchased steel framing for our new build from Eddie and Ezisteel.
We chose Eddie because of his excellent reputation and we were not let down. Eddie went above and beyond our expectations. The frames were manufactured and delivered on-site before our promised due date, which was particularly impressive considering the current building boom.
Eddie looked at our job as a whole and suggested a couple of design changes that improved on our architectural plans. This was a refreshing change after dealing with other service providers during our build. He is a problem-solver, not a problem-maker, and genuinely cares about the finished product.
Installation of the frames was a breeze. 3 hours for a 4 man team to get 200sq metres of wall frames standing.
We have great respect for Eddie and the team at Ezisteel. We highly recommend them for your next project - you will not be disappointed.

We recently contracted EziSteel Ltd to erect a 400 square metre building for us in Wellington. We would like to take this opportunity to comment on our interactions with EziSteel Ltd.
EziSteel provides exceptional workmanship and attention to detail. Their interpretation and execution of our requirements were outstanding.
Any variations to the original plans we supplied to EziSteel were cheerfully and easily accommodated. Their knowledge of different grades of steel and fixings were excellent.
Our building project was a stress-free experience, largely due to the involvement of EziSteel Ltd, as their contribution to our entire project was substantial.
All in all, we cannot recommend EziSteel Ltd highly enough. EziSteel Ltd is a company that actually does what it says it will do!
How well does steel framing stand up to earthquake...
Steel framing can be engineered to meet the highest seismic and wind loads prescribed by the NZ Building Code. Steel has the highest strength to weight ratio of any framing materials and a lighter structure with stronger connections results in lower damage from earthquakes. Steel framed houses in Christchurch suffered only superficial but no structural damage. The stronger screwed connections can withstand greater winds including cyclones.
Do homes with steel framing look different?
Yes, they look better. Walls, ceilings and roofs do not have ripples or bumps in them and there are no “nail pops” in the plasterboard linings. Roofs of steel-framed homes do not sag over time, so the finished job keeps looking good. In fact because of the steel’s strength you can design your home with larger open spaces whilst the exterior looks like any normal home.
What about electrical and plumbing service holes?
Our frames are manufactured with pre-punched 34mm holes for running pipes and electrical wiring, reducing preparation time for other trades. Additional service holes are easily drilled or can be punched and we supply plastic grommets to protect wiring and plumbing.
