Cameron McAree Ochil TimberSpaceJoist’ is the name of the Timber Joist System that we design and manufacture. We managed to grab a few minutes with our Designer, Cameron McAree who knows this system inside and out.

Hi Cameron, how long you have been working for Ochil Timber, and indeed, the wider construction industry?

CM: I’ve been working in the industry as part of the team here at Ochil for 10 years. 

In your experience of working with SpaceJoist, what sets it apart from other timber joist solutions that are available on the market?

CM: With SpaceJoist, greater spans can be achieved which means that there is more space available for plumbing and other mechanical or electrical work. Each system we produce is designed specifically for that job and not made from stock lengths cut to size. As a designer, they provide me with a great deal of flexibility. For example, SpaceJoist can include top hung joists.

What are the main savings and benefits for your customers when they choose to work with SpaceJoist from Ochil?

CM: The main saving and benefit for our customers is the amount of time saved on-site. SpaceJoist is a lot quicker to install because they are specifically designed for the job. For example, tradesmen do not need to cut any holes in the joists for pipes because this is already taken into account when we build them.

What do you do as part of your job that ensures your customers get the highest standard of service and quality?

CM: I make sure that there is good communication at all times between ourselves and the customer so that the finished design and product supplied is 100% what the customer requires.

What is the most rewarding part of your role at Ochil?

CM: Using new software technology that allows me to come up with different design solutions that end up being used on-site and in buildings that will stand for many, many years.
