Posi joists offer greater design flexibility in locating partitions and load bearing walls. Fewer beams are required, reducing the need for intermediate load bearing and partitioning walls. Strength and rigidity can be achieved over long, clear spans in excess of 8 metres achievable where specified by the design engineer.
Bespoke, pre-engineered design eliminates alterations made on site. This drastically reduces the amount of timber waste generated during construction, saving timber resources and resulting in a cleaner, safer site.
Timber itself is carbon neutral. Much less carbon footprint can be attributed to the use of timber floor joists in comparison to concrete beam floors or similar; with the same added benefits. On site wastage is eliminated as a result of tailored, precision engineering and pre-fabrication off-site. In cases of a combined order, off-cuts from the manufacture of roof trusses can also be used in the manufacture of the floor joists.
Tailored, precision, off-site manufacturing using the latest production processes and technologies facilitates the manufacture of your order within a matter of days. Design, production, delivery and installation can all be scheduled with accuracy; with fitting time on site greatly reduced in comparison to that of a cut roof or similar.
Along with the savings associated with electricians and plumbers, and the ease of installation; time is money! The more reliable the schedule and the quicker the installation, the faster you can proceed with follow-on trades. For both self-builders and large-scale developers, keeping the build on track is key to maintaining the budget. The quicker the scaffolding can be removed from the exterior and the closer you can hold on to the dates scheduled with follow-on trades; the more successful and within budget the outcome will be.
