Scotts Timber Engineering adopts MiTek’s PAMIR design platform for enhanced efficiency and customer experience

Scotts Timber Engineering and MiTek UK & Ireland have announced a partnership to offer highly detailed 3D modelling and automated design features for housebuilders.

MiTek PAMIR is a specialised roof-truss and Posi-Joist 3D modelling and design software system, which is a powerful and versatile fully integrated CAD, layout and engineering package with full EC5 engineering to the latest design codes. These advanced capabilities translate into numerous advantages for Scotts Timber Engineering’s customers, including higher quality drawings and quicker turnaround times when detailing and amending drawings.

MiTek’s PAMIR design software

James Scott, managing director, Scotts Timber Engineering says: “One of the key strengths of MiTek’s PAMIR design platform is its seamless integration with third-party information systems such as PDF, AutoCAD, and Revit. This compatibility enables Scotts Timber Engineering to import and export information and details from architects or engineers quickly and easily, streamlining our workflow.”

MiTek’s PAMIR design software allows the design team at Scotts to create accurate designs more efficiently, resulting in a faster turnaround time for customers. As a result, quote stage designs are more accurate, which reduces the amount of work required to bring preliminary designs up to construction quality.

The transition to MiTek PAMIR involved a comprehensive review and restructuring of Scotts Timber Engineering’s operations. By reevaluating each process, the company was able to identify areas for improvement and build a more efficient workflow.

MiTek’s PAMIR design platform

Billy Richardson, head of sales, Scotts Timber Engineering says: “It is clear that MiTek is investing and developing in its systems beyond its competition, and we wanted to be a part of that. PAMIR has made complicated designs more accurate and streamlined our entire design process. We can now respond more efficiently to client feedback without the need to start from scratch.”

Tim Garner, Commercial Director of MiTek UK and Ireland says: “MiTek are delighted to be working in partnership with Scotts Timber Engineering, and it’s great that Scotts are already seeing the many benefits of our software and service. Our design software PAMIR unlocks unparalleled efficiencies, allowing designers to work with speed, accuracy, flexibility and quality. We continue to invest heavily in our suite of software, and we’re very excited to bring timber frame detailing into our PAMIR platform in response to the growing adoption of MMC by homebuilders. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Scotts.”
