Trusses Used in QSRs and CSPs? What are They?

From the Article: “Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs) and Convenience Store Petroleum (CSPs) are not concepts that flow off the lips of members of the truss industry, yet it is a vibrant construction business that can easily be served by the truss community… A new entrant in this market is a company called G2 National, whose mission is to help solve the pain points that they have found this market to have…”

G2 National Op-Ed:  G2 National believes an Architectural Prototype, intended to serve the entire United States, should have a structural framing system mate; G2 National’s QSR and CSP Systems.

Currently, changes in loading requirements by regions cause extreme changes to the structural framing system reeking havoc upon on-center spacing, truss depths, roof openings, framing details, and even the materials used.

G2 National has innovated wood-framed structural shells that can eliminate these budget and construction schedule demons.

G2 National Selects LP SolidStart™ LSL for its CSP-P8™

G2 National selects LP’s 1 3/4″ x 7 1/4″ SolidStart™ LSL for its CSP-P8™ wood structural shell wall studs.  The unique strength of the SolidStart™ LSL gives a great advantage over dimensional lumber studs.  This strength, when coupled with G2 National’s innovative ADS-P8™, creates a wood wall capable of replacing traditional expensive and schedule-busting CMU walls in the Convenience Store & Petroleum new construction market.

G2 National Op-Ed:  Skilled rough carpentry labor shortages are another reason to move towards the strong and simple CSP™ and PRS™.  Our easy-to-install systems do NOT require a high level of rough carpentry expertise to safely erect.  Watch our video to see how each sub-component of our CSP-P6™ come together.  Often no complicated and expensive structural connectors are required…just our HSCs™ and a screw gun.
