Setting Attic Trusses at the Diamond Building

Setting Attic Trusses at the Diamond Building

The trusses have arrived at the Diamond Building in Bergen Park. Most of the upper roof was designed using long span attic trusses.

After several design studies and preliminary pricing, we determined that for this building, the attic trusses would provide the square footage that we needed for the best price.

Value Engineering like this can often affect the design of the building and the interior spaces, but in this case, we were able to anticipate the structural decisions early on because of our ability to design structure in-house. The roof will begin sheathing next week.
