installing 200 x 63 (mm) lvl beams

Hi i am having to re structure my roof. It was a flat roof and i am now converting to the traditional gable type with properly engineered trusses.
The plans call for 200 x 63 mm lvl to be installed around the perimeter.Thus tying the roof structure. my question is which method would be best for mounting beams to the wall framing top to avoid twist. I have had one builder tell me to use hoop ties ? i think a metal U shape that goes over and down each side is this o.k. not sure what spacing .Would appreciate any help
Thanks tim

I'd contact the beam manufacturer for guidance or the engineer who spec'ed the structure.
