Max Bögl Group extends BIM workflow to include Tekla

As a result of an extensive evaluation process, Max Bögl Group, the largest private construction company in Germany, has decided to introduce Tekla BIM (Building Information Modeling) software solution to their operations. The process of designing concrete elements for construction across the entire company will be handled in Tekla Structures software, including the transfer of data to production planning systems.

The Max Bögl Group was faced with the challenge of optimizing and streamlining processes that had been developed over decades in planning, production, and logistics. To achieve this, their BIM processes had been accelerated and redefined over a period of many years. Their plan focused on integrated, model-based software solutions that could be flexibly integrated into the Group's BIM strategy. After an intense evaluation of the precast concrete systems on the market, the company ultimately decided on Tekla Structures BIM software.

"Model-based project management is a central component of our company strategy. Our planning process is concerned with compiling and using all available information in an efficient manner. So the 3D BIM available is a crucial part of establishing successful project management and a future basis for communication among our project teams," says Andreas Schmid, a procurer at Max Bögl Fertigteilwerke GmbH. "We need a BIM system with a highly parameterized approach that allows us to map our innovative construction products in a very detailed structural model in a cost-effective manner. The ability to load and process large structural models like stadiums or paper factories is an essential part of the system. Tekla Structures fully meets our needs in this respect, with its lean file size, outstanding performance in large projects, and freely definable construction standards.”

"In Max Bögl, we have won an innovative pioneer in the construction industry as a customer – a company that is also a successful trailblazer in the use of 3D BIM software in Germany. So we are particularly pleased about our new partnership with Max Bögl. The decision in favor of Tekla sends a message to many other companies in the construction industry and design engineering offices," says Dietmar Bernert, business manager for the concrete division at Tekla GmbH.

Tekla Structures BIM software transforms building-related data into a fully parametric, consistent structural model for the design and production control processes. All general arrangement and detailed drawings are automatically generated and are always kept up to date. Tekla’s unique component technology allows Max Bögl to easily change its own plant-specific standards (e.g. node details, connections, and much more) at any time and in any way, without having to possess programming skills.

About Tekla

With its software, Tekla Corporation drives the evolution of digital information models and provides thus more and more competitive advantage to the construction and infrastructure industries. Tekla has customers in nearly 100 countries, offices in 15 countries and a worldwide partner network. The company was established in 1966 and is one of the longest operating software companies.

With an ambition to multiply its customers' potential to think and achieve big, Tekla provides an accurate, detailed, and data-rich 3D BIM (Building Information Modeling) software environment that can be shared by contractors, structural engineers, steel detailers and fabricators, as well as concrete detailers and manufacturers. The highly detailed as-built structural models created, combined and distributed with Tekla Structures enable the highest level of constructability and production control. Centralizing building information into the model allows for more collaborative and integrated project management and delivery. This translates into increased productivity and elimination of waste, thus making construction and buildings more sustainable.
