Advanced Framing Techniques & Engineered Lumber - Open Web Engineered Floor System

Advanced framing refers to a variety of framing techniques designed to reduce the amount of lumber used and waste generated in the construction of a wood framed house. On average, advanced framing uses 30% less lumber than traditional framing methods. Some examples of advanced framing techniques used by Health-E Community Enterprises of Virginia, Inc. are California corners, ladder T-walls, and open web floor joists.

Another component of advanced framing is the use of engineered wood products. There is a large family of engineered structural products, including laminated veneer lumber (LVL), wood I-beams and I-joists, sub-flooring, and wood roof and floor trusses. These products combine efficient raw material use with adhesives to improved strength and performance capabilities to produce a superior option as compared to traditional materials. These materials are accepted by all major building codes. They provide more load-bearing capacity than traditional lumber, and resist shrinking, twisting, splitting, and warping.
