Taylor Lane Designer is TRA Top Scorer

We are thrilled to announce that Gabor Vince, from our in-house design team was one of two industry professionals to achieve the highest score in the Trussed Rafter Association (TRA) online training course.  Gabor was presented with his training certificate and high scorer award at the TRA Annual AGM, last month.

To celebrate his achievement, Gabor will travel to Sweden, courtesy of Vida Wood, to visit the forest, mill and factory to experience the logging and felling process.

Nick Boulton, TRA chief executive, said:“It’s a well-deserved result for Gabor and testament to the talent we have within the trussed rafter industry. Providing the right tools and resources for trussed rafter designers is essential so it’s a privilege that we can be involved.

“Sign-ups for our online training course have more than quadrupled since 2016 which is a positive sign that we are moving in the right direction. We look forward to seeing who will follow in Gabor’s footsteps next year.”

Gabor Vince, Taylor Lane roof truss designer, said: “I was pleased to have the opportunity to train using such a well-designed course; I think it is essential for designers like myself.  I’m very happy with the result  and while I was quite surprised by the prize, I am very much looking forward to my trip to Sweden!”

Gabor completed the Introduction to Trussed Rafter Design online course offered in conjunction with Edinburgh Napier University.  Gabor is a member of our dedicated roof truss design and estimating team.

Taylor Lane Services

5/ 5 Stars

"Taylor Lane were key to the design process. They do all the engineering calculations...and tell you if something’s possible or not, calculate the truss requirements etc. "

5/ 5 Stars

"We have a long history with Taylor Lane. They have worked with Lovell and been part of our supply chain for well over 15 years, that I know to. When I have visited Hereford (on a number of occasions), it’s a welcoming business that’s open, honest and transparent on all matters commercial, design, technical. We quickly derived confidence that they were the right choice for us...and that’s been vindicated by performance onsite thereafter."

5/ 5 Stars

"We had worked with them [Taylor Lane] previously and were happy to continue that relationship knowing the quality of the frame and the service that we would receive."
