Web joists

Postby pcashcroft » Tue Apr 13, 2021 7:50 pm

I'm trying to use web joists and can't find an option to do that. They are very common in the UK as they have longer spans and you can run services more easily without having to cut holes in the joists.
I assume this is something I would have to create. How would I go about doing this so they show up the same way as a normal joist in the takeoff tool?
Thanks

Hi PCashCroft, you can specify Web Joists, the name is different, we call them floor trusses, but you can change that in the BOQ in PlusDesignBuild.
