Simpson Strong-Tie Strong Frame stands tall at PCBC

Simpson Strong-Tie will be displaying the seismic resiliency of a two-story Simpson Strong-Tie Strong Frame special moment frame at the 2018 Pacific Coast Builders Conference (PCBC).

Simpson Strong-Tie will also showcase 3D modeling software along with state-of-the-art planning solutions from CG Visions, a Building Information Management (BIM) technology provider for the residential construction industry.

Held at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco June 27-28, and sponsored by the California Building Industry Association and endorsed by the Leading Builders of America, PCBC is a professional trade show and conference for the residential housing market and annually draws more than 10,000 builder attendees for education, networking, and product innovation demonstrations.

“We’re excited to meet new builders and connect with our existing customers as Simpson Strong-Tie continues to identify opportunities to provide value in residential construction,” says Simpson Strong-Tie Vice President of Builder Sales, Nate Johnston. “PCBC has also always been known as an annual highlight of emerging technologies and solutions, and we’re looking forward to sharing the booth with CG Visions for the first time as the industry increasingly turns to BIM for next-generation advancements in design, modeling and project management.”

Acquired by Simpson Strong-Tie in January 2017, CG Visions provides BIM consultation, technology and services to single-family and multifamily residential builders to help them realize cost and labor efficiencies across the design and construction cycle.

Designed to provide optimal moment transfer solutions for both new and retrofit projects, the Simpson Strong-Tie Strong Frame special moment frame features Yield-Link structural fuse technology to ensure the resiliency of the frame during seismic events.

Based in Pleasanton, Calif., Simpson Strong-Tie manufactures structural connectors, fasteners, fastening systems, lateral-force-resisting systems, anchors and building solutions, including software.
