Since the beginning of 2018, EC5 has been the code to which all new truss and metal web floor designs should be designed. July saw the deadline for legacy BS5268 designs to be converted to EC5 and Les Fuller, chairman of the TRA technical committee recently issued a statement to clarify the position. You can read the full statement on the TRA website here.

The MiTek PAMIR software was specifically written for EC5 and as such is a stable and proven platform to produce accurate designs.

Over the last few years our training team has been a busy place as our customer base have learnt the PAMIR software, and we continue to offer a range of software and EC5 training courses. Details of these courses can be downloaded from our website.
