SPS maintains a fully trained and experienced staff, with specific expertise in the repair of all types of heavy-timber wood roof trusses, and glued-laminated beams. Bowstring trusses were used as the primary roof structural element from the 1920's through the early 1950's. Glued laminated beams replaced the wood trusses in the early 1950's, and are still a primary element in industrial and commercial buildings today. There are many factors, which contribute to structural failures in these members, such as the affects of long-term loading, age, abuse or overstress, material defects or improper original design.
Our staff is
trained and experienced in the correct assessment or
evaluation of the current structural condition of these
types of structures, and has the technical skills to design
and install the most appropriate structural repair or
reinforcement for each individual situation. Beginning with
the physical investigation at the jobsite, to the proper
engineering analysis of the current loading conditions, to
the design and implementation of construction services for
the complete structural repairs, our acknowledged innovation
and expertise has earned our company a prominent role in
this highly specialized area of construction.
