Miso Building Pty. Ltd. and A.T.S. Timber
Headquartered in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, Miso Building completed Stonybrook Terrace, a single architecturally designed 400 sq. m. home in Sydney’s Bella Vista area. Because the project incorporated significant heights, Miso Building needed a host of framing products with proven stability and durability to construct the home.
Miso Building selected LP® SolidStart® I-Joists, LVL and Rim Board for the home. With the help of LP® Solutions Software, local supplier A.T.S. Timber was able to provide layouts specific to the products recommended. The whole-house CAD-based design program is available to all LP SolidStart customers and includes a variety of tools to help with the creation of engineered designs and accurate materials lists.
“A.T.S. Timber initially thought the heights involved in this project and the lightweight LP SolidStart I-Joists would be a good match on this house,” said Miso Mitrovic, managing director for Miso Building. “We decided to go with their recommendation.” Mitrovic said he wasn’t disappointed. He found that the weight of the LP SolidStart Engineered Wood Products, along with the easy-to-read layout created in LP Solutions Software, made them easy to install, helping Miso Building save on time and labor.
Both Miso Building and A.T.S. Timber said they are satisfied with LP SolidStart Engineered Wood Products, and Mitrovic said he would like to use them in the future. “A.T.S. looked far and wide for an engineered wood product supplier and went with LP because of the quality of LP SolidStart I-Joists,” said Richard Nicholson. “We are converting builders such as Miso over to LP SolidStart EWP, and they thank us every time. Joining with LP was a very good decision to give A.T.S. the full package for the residential builder.”
