LGS Add-In 

A user friendly software package that works as an ADD on to TEDDS software 
Available as a Standalone single seat version or Manufacturer redistributable version 
Enables the user to produce comprehensive calculations in Light Gauge Steel design in a fraction of the time ("Paid for itself on the first job!" - Mike Gales, Engicad) with added weight per square metre or linear metre respectively for estimation purposes 
Provides calculations to both British Standards (BS 5950-5) AND Euro Codes (EN1991-1-3) 
Self weight and embodied carbon of pitched roof trusses, joists and walls calculated to make easier to choose the lightest option 
- Detailed design including Light Gauge Steel package checks / designs include Duo pitched Roof, Joist and Truss design, wall members, lintels, racking / sliding / overturning / stability checks - all that's needed to design multi storey buildings in hours if not quicker.  
"What used to take days, now takes hours!" 
Mike Gales, Engicad 
Now includes duo pitched roofs, self weight and embodied carbon of all members. 
Updated every quarter with the 1st year's maintenance included (April to April, and 20% of the intial cost per seat). Latest update to V 3.0.7 came out in March 2023. 
"With the plug-in to Tedds we are now able to rapidly generate calculations, allowing us to iterate and value engineer much earlier in the design process, keeping us competitive and allowing us to deliver a faster and better service to our customers" Nick Brown, Design Manager, Precision Frame Systems Ltd
