RedBuilt Metal & Wood Composite Floor Truss Review

RedBuilt Trusses are much lighter than our typical 2×4 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 2×4 Floor Truss & they cost a bit more, but overall I was really impressed.  Amazing product.
