We’ve always been proud of the support and technological innovation we’ve developed to help our clients visualise and explore their projects in 3D.
So we were delighted to discover earlier this month that MiTek’s 3D Digital Hub had won first place in the Constructing Excellence West Midlands award for Digital Construction.
Earning third party peer approval in this way is a great endorsement, and recognises the investment and effort we’ve put into developing an intuitive, easy-to-use platform that clients can explore at a time and place –and on a device – to suit them.
The annual awards, which this year took place at Edgbaston Cricket Stadium in Birmingham, are recognised across the West Midlands built environment as the biggest and brightest celebration of best practice.
They seek to highlight, recognise and celebrate the core strength of construction in the region and the desire and commitment to deliver buildings, housing, infrastructure and facilities of all kinds in a collaborative and sustainable manner.
Announcing the award, the judges said they were impressed by MiTek’s 3D Digital Hub’s ability to create accurate and cost-effective designs which can be widely shared across project teams, anywhere, and on any device.
“Our bespoke technology is enabling project teams across the country to effectively share 3D models of engineered timber designs, without the need for complicated app downloads, software or costly subscriptions,” said MiTek’s Business Development Director Jimmy Close.
“Our team worked closely with customers to develop the software so that architects, engineers, contractors, clients and skilled trades can share 3D models of designs with no cost and absolute ease. It’s facilitating greater collaboration between engineered timber suppliers and their customers, allowing them to identify issues very early on, eliminating remedial work later in a build, saving time and money.”
The technology has already been used in the UK to deliver 2,000 3D models of roof truss, Posi-Joist and timber frame designs.
Added Jimmy: “We’re tremendously proud to have won this award. We work very closely with our customers to evolve and develop new software to keep them at the cutting edge of what they do, helping them design, make and build better to unlock value and profit from every project.
“Our 3D digital Hub is a true reflection of this.”
