Rusk Component and Design

Established in April of 2010 by Brian J. Rusk, PE., the goal is to provide a more symbiotic relationship between the contractor's team and the truss component design team. Not only do we provide a design service and manufactured component product, but a complete roof component package. Every element related to the truss component system is checked for design compatibility with documents provided by the contractor's design team. From there, Rusk Component and Design continues with a project manager type service to ensure the complete component package is delivered to specification, on time, and even provides consultation services for proper installation of the product. We do not just act as subcontractor to the contractor but as a member of the contractor's team which benefits all involved.

Brian J. Rusk, PE is the president of the company and a licensed professional engineer in the state of Colorado. He has fifteen plus years of design experience in both building structural design as well as truss component design. He obtain a B.S. degree in engineering with a civil specialty from the Colorado School of Mines. Brian also is member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
