    RedBuilt Trusses are much lighter than our typical 2x4 floor truss.

    My tradesmen were so happy with the HUGE open webs to run ducts/pipes/wires.

    That's a big trunk line for the HVAC system and it ran in this truss space easily!

I'm working an a super cool modern Duplex project with Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, and this is my first project using RedBuilt Open-Web Wood/Steel Trusses. These have enabled some really cool architectural features on this very modern project. Here's my video review:

In summary, I will definitely use these again. They were a bit more work to procure than our standard 2x4 Floor Truss & they cost a bit more, but overall I was really impressed. Amazing product.
