MiTek is driven by timber engineering, where the company positions itself as technically accurate in the application of timber connectors and structural brackets within the structure.
The on-site guide is helpful for building designers who are now required to provide solutions and increase the detail they offer to builders. Builders and building officials will also find this guide useful because illustrations are clear and easy to follow on-site.
Based largely on NZS3604:2011, this is the fourth edition of the guide originally published in 2004 in response to changes to the Building Act.
MiTek recommends the apps to enable on-site guides to be continuously updated, in a way that hard copy has struggled to keep pace with both new fixing products and changes in application.
