Did you know our Ultra Span pre-fabricated light gauge steel roof truss system is now available to use within our market leading Pamir roof design software?
At MiTek we are always striving to improve the design and installation of our roofing systems, for that reason we’ve added Ultra Span product design into our Pamir software.
For those of you that are new to Pamir, it is our market leading roof truss and Posi joist design software. Developed by our European software team, it’s a powerful CAD, layout and engineering package, with full EC5 engineering to the latest design codes.
A very useful design tool to say the least!
We recently caught up with Edward Curry, Managing Director and owner of Giant Engineering, based in Pretoria, who has been trialling Ultra Span design in Pamir to find out how it is helping make life easier for his business.
“Giant has been going since 2004 but of course, recently we’ve seen a change in business working and our order book as a result of the pandemic and associated lockdowns. But things are going well and we’re still going strong.
We’re a fan of Ultra Span having used the product for many years, but most recently, we’ve been finding out the benefits of using it with MiTek’s Pamir software for our design work.
It’s turning out to be a great tool as we can render designs in 3D and see exactly what our ideas look like before submitting them to our clients.
The software is quick, and is intuitive and easy to use, so if we want to change a component, or it illustrates we’ve forgotten an important element, its straightforward to amend, or to try out different solutions.
For our clients, it’s a real help as they are able to see exactly what their projects will look like, from different angles and aspects, right down to small details like the type of brackets and fixings.
Some of our clients especially in the rural areas don’t really understand what light weight gauge steel is. I think there is a real beauty in its design and it’s great to be able to show that and how the profile is completely different. Now I can send them a proper 3D visual, and they can really experience just what it is.
We’re able to use the software for both Ultra Span and wood roof truss design projects which makes it flexible, but it really does make Ultra Span design a breeze, and enables us to demonstrate a high level of professionalism to the clients who’ve asked us to quote for their jobs.
It’s been great to be part of this trial and I really like that MiTek welcomes feedback on ideas for improvement and is continually developing the software with its products in mind, to improve roof innovation and help anyone involved in roof truss and light steel roof design.
