Truss Welding

The Open Web Steel Joist (OWSJ) system of trusses used in the Church provides very strong support for vertical loads. Trusses are not meant to handle lateral (from the side) loads. The cross braces being welded into place in the pictures below lock the truss structure together and strengthen the entire super structure of the Church.

These pictures were taken on April 15th while additional cross bracing was being added to the south end of the sanctuary.
