I have been very impressed with Christopher and Gould design in the few years he has done work for me. Each job is returned on schedule, is very detailed, and any concerns or questions clearly highlighted. The level of detail achieved in each job is outstanding! Thank you Chris...you are obviously extremely talented, dedicated, and have surrounded yourself with competent staff to offer a superior level of service.

Rob Ouwehand
Design Manager, Turkstra Truss

Chris assisted my investigation of a wood truss roof collapse with technical information that only someone familiar with the proprietary metal plate wood truss design software could provide. Additionally, his insights into the typical errors made be non professional technicians demonstrated his technical talents.

I would highly recommend Chris for any project that requires knowledge of the metal truss plate industry and the limitations of design software of the two top competitors, for projects from the simple to the difficult framing systems.

Chandler Marcille
Residential Design Manager The Truss Company

Having the opportunity to meet and work with outstanding individuals is incredibly rare as much as it is rewarding. Getting the chance to work with and get to know Christopher Gould checked both of these boxes. Winning our trust and support early on, United Truss solicited the services of Christopher Gould of GDI Inc. during December 2013 to provide an onsite design consultation. The goal of the visit was not only to assess where we were, but what our team had to do to get the most out of our in-house design department. I have to say the exercise proved to be extremely rewarding. One word to describe Chris Gould - Integrity. He not only does what he says, but his commitment to interacting with others on a personal level puts him miles above the rest. He was not only concerned with what our designers were doing and how that did what they did, he was concerned ABOUT them. Truly a remarkable individual, we're lucky we are able to continue our relationship to this day by utilizing GDI Inc's design outsourcing services - a satisfying relationship in its own right. Thank you to Christopher Gould and his team of professionals.

Brad Unruh
General Manager Timberlake TrussWorks

Truss design out sourcing links so closely to a manufacturers specific design requirements, so when I was introduced to Chris what really impressed me was his due diligence and fact finding of what we required from a designer prior to commencing any design projects. We were experiencing incredible growth with extreme pressure on our design team, we put all types of projects to him and each time he delivered back on time. I cannot speak highly enough of him and his tremendous support. Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with; he is very professional and personable and the highest recommendation l can give him and his team of designers is that everything was done to a high standard and carried out on very tight deadlines. ln the future l would welcome the opportunity to work him again.
