When a building project calls for big spaces, it’s vital what’s beneath the floor holds up under the greatest of gatherings.
HPM Building Supply has a truss for that.
Earlier this year, HPM started manufacturing steel MiTek Posi-Strut floor trusses on O‘ahu, with shipping available statewide to ensure accessibility construction projects across the islands.
The trusses are designed to benefit the industry with their precise engineering, creating an exceptionally strong system that can accommodate longer floor spans and allows for a greater design scope.
The trusses are currently being installed at Hale Nā Koa ‘O Hanakahi, an upcoming affordable senior community in Hilo that’s slated for completion in 2025.
These engineered trusses offer more space between chords to install plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems. They also enable straighter and more stable floors, which allows for reduced noise, floor bounce and vibrations.
HPM trusses are designed to help cut costs while delivering dependable results, making them worth considering for residential, commercial and industrial projects. They’re prefabricated to precise measurements, use less material and don’t require on-site cutting, consequently reducing material waste, time and labor costs.
