Location: St. Paul area, Minnesota

Project Highlights:

The record snowfalls of the 2022-23 winter adversely affected the 1972 vintage building at Structural Wood Corporation of the St. Paul, MN, area. The heavy, wet snowfalls compromised approximately a 20′ wide by 74′ long span of open web wood trusses. Derrick and Structural Wood Corporation have had a long-standing working relationship, both from Derrick purchasing wood products from Structural Wood Corporation and Derrick designing and building one of Structural Wood Corporation’s current office and manufacturing buildings. Structural Wood Corporation contacted Derrick to assist in working with the insurance company to remove and replace the compromised trusses. The total removal and replacement project was performed within 5 weeks late in the fall of 2023.
