BuildSteel releases e-book explaining steel truss systems

BuildSteel, a partnership of steel and construction industry organizations, announced the release of “Cold-Formed Steel Trusses: Design, Performance, and Advantages,” a complimentary e-book to help building owners, architects, contractors and engineers better understand how cold-formed steel (CFS) truss systems can help them in their next project.

“Cold-formed steel trusses are among the most efficient systems for use in non-residential and multi-family construction,” said Dan Snyder, director of BuildSteel. “In a competitive marketplace, CFS trusses provide a cost-effective option to help differentiate projects, deliver value and meet project goals.”

Within the e-book, building professionals will learn:

  • Why multi-family and mid-rise projects benefit from CFS trusses
  • How CFS trusses help solve complex challenges and support design flexibility
  • How CFS truss systems deliver on performance and lifecycle savings
