The Project Steps

To illustrate the line of action for a project where trussed rafters are to be used, the following diagram may be of assistance:


On specific projects, the building designer may also encompass the function of Roof designer. This will generally be the case for small projects, where often, the Builder or his Architect will be the only
professional people involved.
It is also possible for the roles of the Roof designer and the Trussed Rafter Fabricator to be combined, in the case where, by specific contract, the fabricator takes the responsibilities for the design of the whole or part of the roof structure. This arrangement will however be generally undertaken by the Fabricator on a professional, fee-paying basis.
