January 1st 2018 was the date from which all new trussed rafter and metal web joist designs must be completed using the Eurocode 5 design code.

MiTek’s PAMIR design software was written from its inception with EC5 design at its core, and as such can easily handle the additional complexities of the design code. MiTek fabricators can also take comfort in the knowledge that thousands of roofs and floors have already been designed to EC5 using PAMIR since it was released in 2014.

Our training facility in Dudley has been put to good use over the last two years, as our customers prepared themselves for the deadline.  Details of our training course schedule can be found on our website.

In addition to our on-site training courses, there are also two MiTek online courses, specific to EC5: ‘Understanding Eurocode 5’ and ‘Pamir EC5 Design’. Designers can complete these courses with minimal disruption to their busy schedules.  Please contact us or speak to your Technical Support Manager if you would like to book on a course or receive more information.
