Simpson Strong-Tie brings the complete package to IBS

Company will showcase BIM, deck planning software and new structural connectors and Fasteners at 2018 International Builders’ Show.

Simpson Strong-Tie will showcase new construction planning technologies and innovative time-saving structural engineering products at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) January 9–11 in Orlando, FL.

To help builders and contractors “make the connection” between state-of-the-art planning software and cost-effective structural engineering solutions, the Simpson Strong-Tie booth (W4641) will be joined to the CG Visions booth (W5653) via bright yellow floor markers that create an easy-to-follow path connecting the two booths. Acquired by Simpson Strong-Tie in 2017, CG Visions is a leader in Building Information Management (BIM) technology for the residential construction industry.

With investments in outdoor living and residential remodeling expected to increase throughout 2018, Simpson Strong-Tie will also exhibit their innovative Deck Planner Software, a 100% free, cloud-based technology solution providing 3D plan views, materials lists, permit information and more to improve the overall deck-building experience for builders and do-it-yourselfers.
