Design Concepts
 
A two-day course for the more experienced Truss Designer who is currently using the MiTek suite of software.  The course, presented by members of our design team, will concentrate on some of the broader issues affecting the design of trussed rafters within today’s more complex roofing situations, and also how to implement the various engineering code and loading requirements.
