Design Centre Benefits

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

Using Wesbeam’s unique, e-house [whole of house] software, the Design Centre creates accurate, detailed and cost-effective plans for building second storey floors with e-beam LVL and e-joist for Wesbeam registered customers.

Once the whole-of-house details have been entered, the software cleverly calculates loads from roof through wall to floor to foundations; and checks support at every point. Its ‘What-if… ?’ feature trials various configurations to work out the most cost-effective solution.

This intelligent load calculation produces a final design which fully optimises the use of materials without compromising build quality. A customised floor systems layout and quote is sent to Wesbeam’s Frame & Truss or Timber Merchant registered customer detailing the most economical way to build the floor to the specification provided.

Exact sizes of materials and quantities are delivered on site along with all the necessary fixings and detailed plans, guaranteeing no shortages, oversupply or wastage. Everything needed for the job is in one, fully-comprehensive, flat-packed delivery.

Builders and designers are encouraged to engage the Wesbeam team at the early stages of design to run ‘what-if’s’ on the various design and load transfer options. By conducting this analysis at the outset, builders optimise the cost of construction and minimise unexpected outcomes on site.
