RedBuilt™ engineered wood Red-I™ I-joists are suitable for a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications where design efficiency, installed cost, labor savings and aesthetics are primary considerations. Over the last five decades, RedBuilt™ has become the first choice of architects, engineers, contractors and building owners on a diverse array of projects including:
- Office buildings
- Schools and universities
- Strip malls
- National chain store locations
- Hotels and motels
- Multifamily housing
- Manufacturing facilities
- Heavy industry sites
- Large storage facilities
RedBuilt™ offers a variety of solutions for small to large retail buildings as well as strip centers. An open floor plan is often the primary requirement as it allows the owner/developer the flexibility to create a market specific and relevant lease space.
Whether it’s our Open-Web Trusses or Red-I™ I-joists, RedBuilt can provide design assistance and system cost analysis during the concept phase of the project helping the client on the front end so there are no surprises on the back-end.
At the heart of RedBuilt’s resume is how we’ve contributed to thousands of successfully designed office spaces. RedBuilt’s experienced group of Technical Representatives bring a wealth of knowledge to help you work through the most difficult design requirements.
Floor performance or, how a floor feels, is often a major design consideration. With the aid of our technical team and the FloorChoice™ floor rating system RedBuilt can help you design a floor that balances the need for both economy and performance.
In addition to floor performance, our team can provide guidance related to how other trades interface with our products, specifically, plumbing, HVAC and fire & sound.
From long span gymnasium roofs to carefully designed classroom floors, RedBuilt’s Red-I™ Joists, RedLam™ LVL and our lineup of Open-Web Trusses provide ample solutions for this building category.
Our experience with school work goes back to the 1960s. Needless to say, we understand the processes involved and the level of detail required to make these projects a success.
Our Red-H™ open-web truss can span up to 120’ and has been used to cover many school gymnasiums. In contrast, our Red-I65™ joist is used on many shorter span applications where economy is desired.
If you need design assistance on commonly used RedBuilt products, please give your local rep a call. They will help you through the design process.
Apartments, Condos, Assisted Living Facilities, Hotels and Motels all share the same design challenges; certified fire & sound ratings, economics and post-sale logistics. Owner/Developers are looking for companies like RedBuilt™ that can provide an economical floor or roof joist and provide the shop drawing and package/delivery logistics required to keep the project coming in on time.
Likewise, general & framing contractors need to partner with companies like RedBuilt™ that understand their specific logistical needs so they too can perform on time and under budget. RedBuilt™ will help work through all the common “gotchas” on Multi-Family projects like plumbing drops, duct penetrations & sheathing layout. Our experienced team can help you save money.
Efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to designing roofs and mezzanines in the warehouse category.
The primary challenges with this building type are efficiently supporting the vertical loads and reconciling all the seismic forces. Because there are very few interior walls, the seismic forces are resolved at the outside walls.
RedBuilt™ offers efficient designs with its Red-I™ I-joists and double chord Open-Web trusses. Give your local RedBuilt representative a call for design assistance.
