A TECH-WOOD PRODUCT IS A BETTER PRODUCT

Pre-manufactured building components answer many of the most difficult challenges of residential and commercial construction projects: labour availability, extreme weather conditions, scheduling.

There are two key characteristics of what we do that link the range of products we offer: quality and efficiency.

Quality - manufactured by specialists indoors in a controlled environment to custom specifications, pre-manufactured components bypass many of the challenges of on-site construction such as extreme weather and inexperienced labour.

Efficiency - custom manufacturing means a precise fit, every time. Advanced manufacturing schedules means you don't start fabrication when the job is ready… when the job is ready, so are your products.

Tech-Wood has been delivering these solutions to the Calgary building industry since 1998. We have developed the expertise that enables us to provide the results our customers demand.

ROOF TRUSSES


Structural metal plate connected roof trusses are a relatively new development in the history of wood frame construction. Invented in 1952, it was only in the 1970s that their use became widespread. Since that time, the strength and efficiency they provide has made them the standard in the industry.

Effective use of wood truss systems depends, however, on quality and efficiency. Tech-Wood works hard to maintain the highest standards in both. Before any material hits our set-up table, all cutting is completed by automated saws guided by computer downloaded design drawings.

Tech-Wood then combines both computer-generated auto-setup with overhead laser projection on our perimeter-definition tables for the best in both accuracy and efficiency.

Time is money... we meet our schedules and our customers also benefit from fewer fixes and reworks as a result of our high quality standards and dedication to delivering fit-for-purpose structural components.

Our wood I-Joist floors are custom engineered with a great deal of care and caution for maximum performance for every installation. Effective designs ensure the utmost performance using TrusJoist TJ-Pro Rating Advantages criteria which provides a new method for accurately predicting floor performance. TJ-Pro works as part of TrusJoist, Forte and Javelin structural frame design software. TJ-Pro Ratings go beyond deflection criteria to consider job-specific needs and expectations. In many cases TJ-Pro Ratings will offer a system that improves performance while actually reducing cost!

We also work hard to ensure installation is managed without a hitch. We will customize your I-Joist Floor systems to suit your needs and budget. Our I-joist floors are TrusJoist® by Weyerhaeuser.

FLOOR TRUSSES


Builders are discovering that floor trusses are the solution to many of their floor framing problems. Floor truss installations create high quality construction with the added benefits of reduced framing time, waste, shrinkage and call backs. Design versatility and open web spaces are great advantages to builders of today's complex and sophisticated projects.

The fact that floor trusses are built with 2x4s or 2x3s oriented 'flatwise', means a wide stable bearing surface is present to make it easier to work on and with.

Long span and girder truss options reduce the need for intermediate bearing walls, beams, columns or footings saving time and construction cost.

The open web configuration leaves plenty of room for plumbing, electrical and mechanical runs in the open spaces within the floor truss. Floor Trusses are ideally suited for large span needs in commercial and custom home projects.
