Bob Evans Corporate Headquarters, located in New Albany, Ohio, consists of 3 new buildings. The main building is a 2-story structure with a unique truss system.

The custom joist system allowed the project to be within budget, while still providing the aesthetic look the architect and owner envisioned. The joist design also helped reduce the entire weight of the steel system, thus reducing structural framing and footer sizes. The lighter joist and use of bolted X-bridging allowed for less temporary bracing, faster erection time and reduced crane size.

Some were 13 feet deep with sloped bottom cord members. The joists were designed, fabricated, and shipped to the site in one piece.
