Focus on Structural Engineering

Achieve the highest quality with construction-oriented engineering that Tekla enables.

With Tekla software, structural engineers can work more effectively - in the way they want, focusing on engineering instead of documentation.  You can achieve higher accuracy, consistency and quality in the core work and deliver a valuable model for contractor.

Tekla Structures integrates with industry leading analysis and design software, and makes possible coordination with architects, consultants and contractors.  Tekla BIMsight offers a professional, free tool for construction collaboration.

 With Tekla you can  

  • Model even the most complicated projects
  • Integrate modeling with structural analysis and documentation.
  • Share freely constructable design information with project parties.
  • Benefit from new business opportunities to extend service and enjoy a competitive edge.
  • Include all materials to your models. 

 

Key benefits

  • Reduce errors and coordinate design reliably.
  • Integrate modeling with design and analysis.
  • Generate construction documentation easily from the model.
  • Accommodate design changes painlessly.
  • Deliver accurate structural models to contractors.

Fast, efficient analysis & design

Model, load, analyze and design buildings in a fraction of the time. From scheme design all the way through to detailed design, one single model covers all your structural analysis and design requirements, encompassing both gravity and lateral systems. There is no need for multiple design models.

The Tekla solution is fully automated and packed with many unique features for optimized concrete and steel building design, so you can compare alternative design schemes, manage changes easily and collaborate seamlessly with BIM platforms.

Because all the structural analysis & design functions are combined into a single solution, there are no additional modules or software packages to purchase, maintain, learn or integrate with.

Automated structural calculations

Producing accurate, transparent and well-presented calculations is essential. With Tekla there is no need to write calculations by hand or manage cumbersome spreadsheets; simply access a broad library of automated structural and civil calculations, covering all common elements and materials. And, for total flexibility, you can easily write and distribute your own custom calculations within our software.

Creating professional and customized output is simple and easy, plus you can include any additional information such as sketches and notes. Enhance your Quality Assurance processes and improve consistency across your business and projects.

Enhance communication

We understand the importance of BIM collaboration, both internally within the structural design office and externally with the project team. We are committed to delivering interoperability with other software vendors and fully support an open approach to BIM.

With Tekla solutions, structural engineers and drafters can coordinate seamlessly with architects, service engineers, detailers and contractors at any stage of the project, using industry standard file formats and custom integration links. Our open approach means that you and your design team can choose the right tools for your workflow. 

 

Fast and intelligent modeling

Our solution enables you to develop constructible, intelligent Building Information Models, which can contain a high level of detail for increased accuracy and confidence. All this and there is absolutely no compromise to speed and performance, even when working on the largest, most complex models and projects.

Level of Detail / Development (LOD)

Requests for Information (RFIs) and resolving clashes on site cost you money. Using Tekla software you can create 3D constructible models quickly, then visualize and explore how the structure will fit together when built, before the project gets to site. See the problems before they become reality and minimize expensive delay and rework.

 

Professional contract documentation

With Tekla you can produce all your structural documentation, including construction drawings, detailed drawings for steel and reinforcement, reports and material schedules at a touch of a button. They are all fully automated, so there is no need to create and update drawings manually.

Because change management can be costly, we have made it easy for you. Working within a Building Information Model means that you can make changes quickly and automatically update all the associated documents in an instant. You can share updates with your project team at every stage of the project with minimal effort. Maximize productivity, improve coordination and manage changes easily.
