The range of Futurebuild® LVL software enables Designers and Engineers, even those unfamiliar with the specifics of timber to produce high quality and reliable specifications using engineered wood products.

Residential Building Software

designIT® for Houses is a software tool for all building practitioners for designing with the Futurebuild® LVL range of engineered wood products and other selected materials, for houses and similar structures.

Quick and simple to use, yet deceptively powerful software, designIT for Houses enables a wide range of applications to be considered, including the selection of beam sizes, floor layouts, wind and other loads without the need for exercise of professional engineering judgment.

designIT sITe App is a cut down mobile-friendly version of our designIT software and serves as a handy reference tool and calculator for specifiers or tradesmen using Futurebuild LVL products.

Non-Residential Building Software

designIT Commercial Floors gives building industry professionals a tool for designing commercial, industrial and other heavily loaded floors with the Futurebuild LVL range of engineered wood products and other selected materials.
slabIT Site App is for the design of Futurebuild LVL range of formwork products for forming slab soffits.


computeIT® aids in the specification of engineered wood products as heavy structural members in both residential and non-residential systems. computeIT has been developed by experienced timber design engineers to allow the transfer of both traditional and emerging technology to those unfamiliar with timber design. The software allows engineers to respond to clients’ needs whilst providing practical, cost-effective design options.

Software packages within the computeIT suite include:

computeIT for Beams is an all-purpose beam analysis package that enables engineers to develop design solutions for a range of engineered wood products.
computeIT ToolKIT is a series of design tools allowing quick and easy design of beams, columns, rigid moment connections, purlins and girts.
