Working Effectively with Your Truss Designer

Friday, February 16th from 9:45-10:45 AM


Reduce project management time and liability by understanding the roles and responsibilities of the parties involved in projects using metal plate–connected wood trusses. Understanding these responsibilities keeps a project on track: the builder can hold the appropriate parties accountable for completing their scope of work, and the liability and control stay where needed to support an effective and efficient workflow.
