When building a new block of a health and recreation center, designer metal structures were used in the roofing coverage. The over covered three storey building consists of two blocks. It has a variable height and a mixed framework. Both building blocks were over covered with structural lattice roofing of similar design. When designing spatial structural roofing, the authors proposed a new design concept. The novelty of the design lies in the fact that a modified flat truss is used as the basic assembly unit of a spatial structure. To develop a spatial structure design the roof-girder trusses with continuous chords from rolled I-beams and a lattice from roll-welded sections with non gusset joists were used. They are well-known and work well in practice. When designing structural roofing, previously known trusses of the mentioned design were slightly modified. In particular, trusses with parallel chords were given greater camber (2.5% instead of 1.5%), the design of a supporting truss joist was changed and fixing elements for chord and lattice members joining trusses into a spatial structure were added to truss joists.
