Overview on our MGI India Technology

MGI INDIA LGSF/ Prefabricated modular hospitals are produced with high building safety, taking into consideration the intensive use, in addition to ergonomic area design and hygiene structures.

Our modular buildings give an important alternative to conventional structures thanks to their advantages of demountable high-tech quick production system, short time assembling, and economic prices.

Our healthcare buildings are produced using the Light Gauge steel framing technology and is according to international standards and can have sections such as management offices, laboratories, doctor and patient rooms, polyclinics, operation rooms, wc and shower units.

MGI INDIA Light Gauge Steel Framing

Light steel framing comprises galvanized cold-formed C sections of 89mm to 150mm depth in the wall panels, and 150mm to 300mm deep C sections or lattice joists in the floors. Spans of up to 6m-9m can be achieved, which can eliminate internal load-bearing walls and therefore leads to flexibility in internal space planning.

The prefabricated wall panels are typically storey-height (ie 2.7m to 3.2m) and up to 8m long, depending on transportation and lifting.

A house can be constructed from as little as 12 wall panels and up to four houses or large apartments can be delivered per truck. The floors can be installed in the form of prefabricated floor cassettes, or as individual joists.

The option to use composite floor slabs supported by the light steel walls is popular. In this case, the floor slab is typically 150mm to 300mm deep using profiled steel decking with in-situ concrete and spans up to 5.5m when propped temporarily during construction. Not only is the self-weight half of that of a concrete flat slab but it is shallower and provides for routing of ducts suspended from the decking.

Both joisted and composite floors often use slim floor beams that are integrated within the floor zone to create more open plan space, which is particularly useful in care homes and in lobby areas. Concrete and steel stairs are generally delivered as part of the light steel package and are integrated into the Building Information Model (BIM) or the structural design.

The structural performance of cold-formed sections enables their use in a wide variety of applications. A light steel C section of only 1.5mm thickness can support up to 50kN in compression. Structural bracing is integrated into the walls for stability so that medium-rise buildings do not require additional cores. Efficient design solutions are achieved by selecting the steel thickness and configuration of sections to suit the specific loading conditions.
