Prepare schematic diagrams and detailed section drawings while conforming to project plans. Review and optimize designs for most efficient use of resources. Investigate preliminary information and data necessary to generate designs. Utilize knowledge of various computer software, AutoCAD, Wall Builder, engineering practices, mathematics, building materials, and other physical sciences to complete drawings. Interact with building designers about feasibility, possibilities, and problems that may preclude the completion of a truss package that adequately conveys the architects design. Interact with the sales department regarding the scope of work and to acquire and disseminate information needed in order to provide quality truss design drawings that are within bid parameters.
