I started ZHD from a desire to build (design) better buildings using steel and modern methods. My career began as an Architectural Draughtsman in 2005, then I moved on to Light Steel Frame design and detailing in 2007. I have since completed over 700 manufactured LSF building designs, ranging from single garages to 3 story apartment blocks. ZHD became the first dedicated Light Steel Frame (LSF) design studio incorporating architectural (ARCH) principles and drafting in Southern Africa. ZHD has extensive experience in South Africa with projects ranging from affordable housing units to mid rise residential, high end residential, commercial and industrial designs. ZHD has also completed LSF and ARCH designs further afield with projects in Mozambique, Democratic Republic of Congo, Botswana and Zambia. Over and above our private sector client base, ZHD is the contracted design studio for one of the largest LSF manufacturers in South Africa, whom in turn service several of the largest LSF construction companies in Africa. ZHD is able to service architects, manufacturers or end user clients in an array of software packages, including Scottruss, FrameCAD and Solid Edge. ZHD is also experienced in ARCH design packages including AutoCAD, Chief Architect and Rivet. I believe that the future is “green” and that steel is the logical renewable material to be used for primary construction. Nardi Van Zijl
