Estimation and Bidding

BIM Software for Successful Precast Concrete Projects

When you work on a precast concrete construction project, estimation and bidding are among the most important phases of the process. Model-based working helps you manage risk, win more bids and grow profits.

With Tekla software you can quickly create conceptual models and generate accurate quantities for estimation, visualize structural solutions that meet your manufacturing and company standards and then present the optimal solution to your client.

Precise quantity take off reduces risks when bidding and model-based working helps you ensure that project can be built efficiently in terms of time, cost and safety.


Key functionalities:

Easy tools for fast modeling

  • Create conceptual models fast with intuitive tools.
  • Study alternative structural solutions, identify potential problems early and ensure constructibility.




Effective reference handling and compatibility

  • Import the architect’s and other design reference data and manage it using Tekla Structures.
  • Export Tekla models into structural analysis software and speed up the analysis.




Accurate quantities fast from the model

  • Generate quantities, geometry and material information fast from your intelligent Tekla model.
  • Utilize ready-made reports or create your own easily.
  • Exchange data with estimation software solutions.



Communicate your precast concept

  • Build powerful sales presentations with clear 3D visualizations and animations, and present the advantages of your solution.
  • Extract associative drawings directly from the model.



With Tekla you can

  • Manage risk when bidding
  • Model fast with easy tools
  • Ensure constructibility and find potential problems early
