With the construction boom reaching over $300 billion by the early 1990s in the United States alone, this comprehensive and accessible guide is more important than ever for the budget-minded contractor. Presenting quick engineering know-how for the performance and satisfactory completion of construction using commonly recognized equipment, it deals with the physical concepts of the work, the surrounding conditions and equipment requirements, with an emphasis on controls governing the equipment's performance.

This image is part of a series documenting the process of placing and securing the Equipment Barn roof trusses. With the walls ready for a roof, the roof trusses delivered on site, and the tractor lift crane ready for service, it was finally time to start working on the roof. The roof on the Equipment Barn sits on a series of 15 custom built identical W-Trusses. They are 24 ft long to precisely match the distance from outside truss header to outside truss header. The first truss is the easiest since it sits outside the South wall posts and sits on 1.5 inch header "shelves" that extend beyond the posts. It is secured with 3.5 inch nails directly into the the South side wall posts and the two South side gable posts, therefore plumbness of the first truss is a given. After that things get more complicated. The trusses are placed on exact 4' centers. Some of the time the trusses are adjacent to a post and can be clamped/nailed against a post, other times they are not. We previously measured and marked the tops of the 2x10 truss headers for exact truss placement. Then before each truss lift, we climb to the top of the building and secure stop blocks to the headers with nails so that we have a guide for truss placement that can be observed from the tractor during the lift. Lifting the truss is a simple, but slow process. The truss is carried by the crane just off the ground so that the crane can pass beneath the 8' wall purlin. Once inside the barn footprint, the truss is positioned diagonal to the building and the truss is lifted until is goes over the top of the building and all the posts. It is then carried above the building until it is carefully sat against the stop blocks. At this point the tractor is shut down, and with the crane still bearing the weight of the truss, we climb to the headers and do any fine positioning adjustments required to get the truss in the exact correct position. At this point the trusses are toe-mailed to the truss header. Once the truss is secured into the correct sitting position, a level is used to confirm/adjust the truss until it is perfectly plumb, then 6 pieces of temporary bracing are put into place to hold the truss fixed in this position. Once the temporary bracing is in place, it's safe to physically climb out onto the trusses. The connection to the crane is released and the truss is now fully load bearing. The process is then repeated for the next truss. After five "temporary" trusses are in place, permanent bracing is attached across the 16' group of trusses, and the temporary braces are removed. The permanent bracing consists of 2 braces that run lengthwise across the bottom chords of the trusses and 4 braces that run diagonally along the W members of the trusses. This process is repeated until all the trusses are in place. This process required 4 man-days of effort to secure the 15 trusses in place.
