T-Ross Brothers Construction was contracted to design and install a 90′ long structural steel truss system inside of an existing building at the truck trailer manufacturer.

The design of the foundations and truss system required verification of the existing conditions.  The existing concrete floor was removed and a reinforced concrete foundation was installed to support the new column bents of the truss system.  The new system was composed of two trusses, one on either side of the existing column to maximize stability, and column support bents. The truss system is 90′ long, 10′ deep and weighs 27,000 lbs.
