The our designers work out of our 6,000 sq.
ft. office and wood truss design center. All roof truss and floor
truss designers at work within the guidelines of our strict Truss
Design Standards document.
This proprietary document was created using a combination of the
best practices from multiple wood truss design software packages
available on the market today. Our "value engineered" wood truss
follows much more stringent design,
quality, integrity, and installation efficiency guidelines than
are required by most builders, providing a "value engineered"
approach to our wood truss systems. Our designers work within a
"team and team leader" organizational structure which allows us to
assign individual projects and customers to a team of wood truss
design professionals. The wood truss design team members
then operate in unison through a series of design checks and
balances in order to create the most cost effective wood truss
designs possible, without sacrificing the quality and integrity of
the roof or floor truss system.
This design team model carries over into the building of
the roof and floor truss systems as well. Our truss builders also
work within a "team and team leader" structure which creates
continuity and quality in the roof truss and floor truss systems
we build. Since our production supervision are also cross-trained
as designers, the interaction, and communication between our
designers and builders is completely open, constructive, and
effective. Our standard roof and floor truss construction
practice is to also assign customers or projects to the same
"table teams" that then work in unison with the appropriate wood
truss design team to continually look for continuous improvement
opportunities in the way we design and build structural wood truss
All process and product improvement opportunities must be
identified as positive, measureable, and sustainable, and are
then shared with the customer and put into practice. This is an
ongoing process, allowing our designers and builders to
continuously search out the best approach to designing and
building our structural wood truss systems.
This "value engineering" approach to our business continues to add
value to the customer experience.
