Pasquill supplied over 300 Posi-Joists, which were specified by the architects in lieu of traditional timber joists. Posi-Joists are metal web joists used in a broad variety of applications, from domestic housing through to commercial property developments and public sector buildings. They are dimensionally stable, allowing designers particular freedom for internal room layouts, thanks to their ability to cover large spans. Their open web design means easy installation of and access to services and their combination of timber and steel web makes them lightweight but strong.
