English term or phrase: board feet
How are these "pies superficiales" converted into the metric system?

Having served the Southeastern United States since 1977, A-1 is proud of its service to the construction industry, with special attention paid to Florida and the Caribbean. In June of 1998, A-1 acquired GulfStream Lumber’s truss division in Boynton Beach and a year later we consolidated out the manufacturing plant and office division.

In December of 2002, our most ambitious project came to completion with the grand opening of our 100,000 square foot state of the art manufacturing facility. The old adage, “build it and they will come” has proven true for us; since opening the Ft. Pierce plant we have produced almost 2 million board feet a month without sacrificing efficiency or cost. And with 19+ acres we still have plenty of growth capacity!
