Just looking for some input on the attached roof framing sketch/concept. I'm a little unsure about how to resist uplift with these 2x8 purlins on edge bearing on top a glulam beam. Roof pitch is 2.5:12. The blocking between the purlins is held in place with framing angles. The purlin space will be insulated, with a gyp board ceiling. Typically these purlins are secured to the sides of the rafter beam with face-mount hangers, but this setup is different. I think I can satisfy the uplift forces with the truss screws angled up from the bottom thru the top ply of the glulam into the purlin. Any additional input or suggestions is appreciated.
Construction was at one time a highly regionalized business. Pragmatic and market forces made it more efficient for even a large, industrial general contractor to focus regionally. But inexorable trends are making it more important for major commercial, civil, engineering and industrial contractors to grow their global footprint.

Selecting business software for a medium to enterprise-sized construction concern is extremely challenging in large part because most enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites originated in the world of repetitive manufacturing and are therefore a poor fit for a project and asset-centric business. However, midsize to large contractors need the predictable, auditable processes that ERP delivers.
Artificial Intelligence has countless potential use cases, many of which are not inherently evident out of the box. Organizations often struggle with balancing the buzzword with the actual substance of new technologies.
