Structural engineers can use Tekla Structures BIM (Building Information Modeling) software to widen their role in building projects, increasing the value of structural engineering and ensuring the highest-quality end results by moving from design-oriented to construction-oriented engineering.
The Tekla model can be used to offer more services for other disciplines in the project, such as the contractors and subcontractors, to support the whole design-to-construction process.
- Tekla Structures can be used to create all types of structures.
- For cast-in-place concrete, Tekla Structures integrates reinforcement information with building materials information, and follows the entire project from design through to construction.
- Tekla interfaces with several architectural, analysis and design software.
- Tekla Structures' project management functionality allows showing building information graphically to create a better understanding of the project's overall status.
