Engineers, fabricators, and construction professionals are under the same cost and time pressures as every professional in every phase of the design, plan and construction lifecycle. That’s where building information modeling (BIM) comes in.

BIM, built on reliable, constructible, digital project information, adds value by creating, managing and sharing the properties of a building throughout its lifecycle.

With Tekla software, engineers, detailers, fabricators and construction professionals can more easily enjoy the benefits of coordinated, rich data and use that information to improve building performance, appearance, and cost-effectiveness.

Tekla offers solutions for:

Concrete Contractors

For a concrete contractor, an accurate 3D Tekla model delivers benefit at every stage of the construction process. Quantity take-off is fast and accurate, giving you better estimates.  To save time and money, reducing site errors is important – with Tekla software, you can make sure everything fits before you build it. And to keep everyone informed, share your model freely with the engineer and contractor.

Key benefits:

  • Increase pour productivity with quick and easy 3D concrete modeling. 
  • Reduce risk with accurate quantity take-offs.
  • Visualize for better project understanding.
  • Avoid errors on site, save time and money.
  • Improve insight communication.

Steel Fabricators

Tekla software lets you bring new efficiency to steel production workflow. It integrates to architectural, structural engineering and other solutions and production planning systems, working for both detailing and producing all steel structures. As Tekla Structures is powerful and flexible structural steel detailing software, you can create a detailed, constructable 3D model of any steel structure from offshore platform to Olympic stadium to transmission tower.

Key benefits:

  • Optimize the whole fabrication process.
  • Avoid errors in detailing.
  • Manage changes.
  • Coordinate and communicate with others, including site.
  • Plan production with model information.
  • Integrate design to fabrication and transfer information automatically - also with IFC.

Rebar Fabricators

Armed with Tekla, rebar fabricators can expand their services and provide contractors solutions instead of just material. 3D modeling and prefabricating rebar mean less waste during the process and fewer problems on site.

Tekla software lets you run rebar production and assembly smoother.

Key benefits:

  • Reduce total cost and time.
  • Standardize products and processes.
  • Identify alternative technical and construction solutions.
  • Integrate design with fabrication management systems.
  • Avoid clashes and errors on site.

Structural Engineers

With Tekla software, structural engineers can work more effectively - in the way they want, focusing on engineering instead of documentation. You can achieve higher accuracy, consistency and quality in the core work and deliver a valuable model for contractor.

Structural engineering design software of Tekla integrates with industry leading analysis and design software, and makes possible coordination with architects, consultants and contractors.  Tekla BIMsight offers a professional, free tool for construction collaboration.

Key benefits:

  • Reduce errors and coordinate design reliably.
  • Integrate modeling with design and analysis.
  • Generate construction documentation easily from the model.
  • Accommodate design changes painlessly.
  • Deliver accurate structural models to contractors.

With Tekla software, you can boost productivity through shorter modeling times in offshore structures design and higher automation of fabrication. You can interface the model to machinery and project management. Your Tekla models represent the true, detailed, as-built offshore structure.

The software handles all structures, even the largest ones. Everything in an offshore project fits into a Tekla model: 4D visualization, pipes, welds and bolts, weight of the structure and the position of the center of gravity, sustainability and eventual decommissioning.

Tekla lets you identify and correct possible conflicts with the process equipment, cables and access routes. Fixing conflicts already in the design phase saves time and resources in the construction phase.

Key benefits:

  • Oversee the whole project.
  • Model all structures with increased productivity.
  • Avoid errors in fabrication and construction planning.
  • Save time and waste less material.
  • Integrate design to fabrication process.
  • Include welding details in the model.

General Contractors

Construction design software of Tekla helps contractors manage risk and plan for successful construction process. If you detect and avoid problems before construction begins, you minimize expensive delay and rework. Design insight and project predictability from preconstruction to execution delivers more effective planning, coordination and control.

With Tekla, you can create and combine information-rich models, regardless of the file size or complexity. The software also includes tools for project review and constructability analysis. 

Key benefits:

  • Evaluate and understand project before building.
  • Collaborate easily with other project parties.
  • Integrate modeling with cost estimation and scheduling.
  • Visualizations help everyone.
  • Plan and manage your daily work.
