The goal of truss design is to create a roof system that is structurally sound, and still achieves the look you want. Our design team at Island Truss will review your blueprints and create a system of roof trusses that meets both of these goals. In Canada, designs are based on structural requirements from the Building Code. At Island Truss, we go beyond the code to ensure you get a quality product and the look you want!
Sometimes modifications to the look of a design are required in order to maintain sound structure and good economics. Our truss design uses computer software that calculates all the members and connections. Then the computer produces drawings for the engineer’s approval as well as drawings for the manufacturing of the trusses in our plant. Our computer systems also enable us to show you three-dimensionally what your roof system will look like. This is especially useful when changes are required.
Since some of our truss designers also have framing experience, they know how to create trusses that require a minimum of onsite framing to finish, and are available to answer installation questions too.
Local building departments require a truss layout for your permit. Island Truss will provide this aerial schematic of the roof truss system. We also supply engineered sealed drawings for each structural truss within the roof system for your final building inspection.
Add the expertise of our truss design team to your building project. Call Island Truss for an appointment to review your plans.
All trusses must meet the National and BC Building Codes, TPIC (Truss Plate Institute of Canada), any local bylaws, and the appropriate climatic and seismic requirements. All truss designs must be reviewed and sealed by an engineer to ensure that any buildings constructed will meet these building standards.
Our resident truss consultant is a fully qualified engineer who not only certifies these truss designs but is also available to quickly make changes to existing trusses or to assist in other design work. Call Island Truss to arrange for having your truss designs reviewed.

All trusses, floors and beams can be delivered by crane truck to building sites on Mid to North Vancouver Island, as well as the surrounding Gulf Islands. Island Truss takes into account the size and complexity of each job to determine the right amount of on-site crane time required.
We also offer crane service for customers who request that each truss be placed individually. For smaller jobs where a crane truck isn’t necessary, such as garage packages or beam orders, Island Truss offers delivery via one-ton truck for cost-effective options.
