BC FloorValue software from Boise Cascade

Boise Cascade Heat map

Part of Boise Cascade’s BC Framer design software, BC FloorValue is an easy-to-use tool that checks a floor plan for problems, suggests options to correct detected issues, and provides a cost comparison for required upgrades. Designers can evaluate different products for on-center spacing and sheathing thickness options to achieve the optimum price/value relationship. The tool can also be used to evaluate less expensive framing without negatively impacting the floor. In addition, floors throughout the home can be designed with optimal characteristics for each space. BC FloorValue utilizes a visual “Heat Map” (shown) to indicate areas of floor system deflection. www.bc.com
