Real DOKA Formwork Components Now Available for Tekla Structures
DOKA, one of the world’s leading companies for developing, manufacturing and distributing modern formwork systems, has published intelligent 3D components for some of their most popular wall and floor systems in Tekla Warehouse, the free online content and applications storage for Trimble’s Tekla Structures. This development enables Doka’s customers to utilize Tekla Structures, the Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, to manage formwork information more easily and allow successful work on site.
As leading solution providers in the concrete industry, Doka and Trimble join forces to enable concrete contractors to better manage their project information. Concrete contractors using Tekla Structures can now download constructible 3D components for some of Doka’s most popular wall and floor systems directly into their project models from Trimble’s Tekla Warehouse.
With Doka components available in Tekla Warehouse, the users can streamline quantification, planning and management of their formwork operations.
“For concrete contractors, the ability to download Doka wall and floor system components directly into your project is a significant improvement in efficiency,” says Andy Dickey, Business Development Manager at Trimble. “These components enable contractors to quantify and plan their own formwork layouts as well as coordinate the formwork with other work if they wish. Because these components are provided directly from Doka and are full of information such as catalogue numbers, the models provide for the utmost accuracy and efficiency for formwork planning,” Dickey says.
“We want to offer solutions and services to our customers to prepare and communicate all the knowledge needed for a successful project. By having our wall and floor systems easily available for users of software solutions like Tekla Structures, our customers can optimize the use of Doka formwork systems and help them ensure their success on site,” says Andreas Aflenzer, Head of Engineering Software Development at Doka.
Tekla software from Trimble is proven to improve concrete construction productivity. Combining the solutions from industry-leading firms such as Doka with the unique technology of Tekla Structures, including the concrete pour concept, continue to improve quality and productivity within the concrete construction industry.
The Doka Group is one of the world’s leading companies for developing, manufacturing and distributing modern system formwork technology: Wall and Slab formwork, Bridge and Tunnel forms, Climbing, Load-bearing and Safety Systems.
Doka’s strong and effective sales organization gives construction firms all over the world swift access to pathbreaking formwork solutions and services for all areas of cast-in-place building construction.
