Wesbeam’s Design Centre offers an engineering and design service in the use of Wesbeam and other complementary products for residential, multi-residential and commercial structures
Over 85% of Australian detached houses are constructed using lightweight timber framing.
Tall Timber Building Systems [TTBS] provides a range of engineered wood based solutions for commercial and multi-residential structures
Readily available and lightweight for its strength. Strong, sustainable and carbon capturing, wood is the greatest renewable resource
Using Wesbeam’s unique e-house [whole of house] software, the Design Centre models lightweight frame - LWF - structures for residential, multi-residential and commercial buildings utilising LVL, i-joists or floor cassette systems and then creates accurate, detailed and cost-effective working drawings.
The software conducts a full dynamic and static load trace from roof to foundations through every structural element and for every connection. And its ‘What-if …?’ feature trials various configurations to work out the most cost-effective solution.
Intelligent load calculation produces a final design which fully optimises the use of materials without compromising build quality.
Wesbeam’s Design Centre offers a free service to frame & truss manufacturers, timber merchants, engineers and builders seeking optimised solutions for buildings made with wood
