How to design and build a compression ring truss structure

jmcgregor

I am building a passive solar round house and would like to use a compression ring truss structure but can't find a truss company, architect, or structural engineering firm that is familiar with the concept. Is there anyone that can assist or point me in the right direction?

throwing this out there, but perhaps hire a structural engineer?

Keep looking for structural engineers - particularly the ones that do shopping centres...most food courts have a huge skylight that is sometimes supported by compression ring trusses. Might cost you a pretty penny, though.
