“With BIM (Building Information Modeling) technology, one or more accurate virtual models of a building are constructed digitally. They support design through its phases, allowing better analysis and control than manual processes. When completed, these computer-generated models contain precise geometry and data needed to support the construction, fabrication, and procurement activities through which the building is realized.”
The new Tekla Structures 2017, Tekla Structural Designer 2017 and Tekla Tedds 2017 provide advanced collaboration and efficiency through user interface enhancements, more productive modeling and design communication.
GA’s work for the Thales Campus in Bordeaux, France, includes six buildings with total 60,000 square meters of space for about 2,500 employees.The construction project was completed following GA’s FullBIM® methodology, and it won the Tekla Global BIM Awards in 2016.
