The planning part, where they draw out everything, was excellent. The people doing the details asked all the right questions. This makes sure that when we get the frames and trusses on-site, they fit together perfectly and quickly, even around all the structural steel parts. It’s surprising how much regular steel can be cut down when using this lightweight steel from Ramco.

My teams installing the stuff also love this product. They’ve been finishing the installs faster than we expected, which saves us time & money.
