Engineering firms of all sizes are now adopting design and analysis software that offers comprehensive and intelligent tools to support the conceptualization, planning, and detailing of their project.
With the industry using BIM to conceptualize, plan, detail and create the construction of buildings, engineers are looking for ways to bring the same benefits to their analysis & design work.
The Optus Stadium project team completed the stadium three weeks ahead of the schedule.
Looking to streamline the entire analysis and design process, Al Khalaf turned to Trimble and discovered that Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Tedds could ease many of the firm’s challenges.
The dynamic visual nature of 3D modeling combined with the Tekla Structures logical user interface places students on the fast-track to program mastery and real world productivity.
Tekla Model Sharing allows us to use our engineering resources more efficiently. Our engineers are now able to concentrate on their core duties and spend less time on less valuable processes.
RJH Construction Design needed to invest in quality engineering calculation software, to make their designs as productive as possible.
The concrete builder Pankow took an innovative approach to technology and construction in order to bring superior value to their clients.
To meet the requirements of such demanding and differing projects we used software packages from multiple vendors which was difficult to manage as each software package had its own interface.
Our engineers are working more efficiently because they don’t need to switch between multiple software packages for concrete and steel design.
Changes could now be made quickly and easily, within one piece of software and reports would be more consistent and professional, especially critical when submitting reports for review.
Tekla Structural Designer's unique functionality allows engineers to integrate the physical design model seamlessly with Tekla Structures and other leading BIM software.
Modeling can happen offline and because only a tiny amount of data is transferred, even the slowest Internet connection is sufficient.
APT takes advantage of Tedds’ powerful functionality for writing calculations and created its own custom calculations, suited to its particular requirements.
Since we self-perform many different trades and disciplines, it just makes sense that we should know how things like embedded iron and anchor bolts fit with the rebar before the construction phase.
The 3D building information model provided a reliable representation of the actual building, and was used for the owner and design supervisors to check the feasibility of the design rationale.
Even small steel detailing firms find the investment in making the leap from 2D CAD to a 3D detailing solution rapidly pays off in productivity gains and accuracy.
Engineering firms are winning more business, working more efficiently and maximizing profits with design and analysis software that offers the true, proven ability to work seamlessly with other tools.
The team was able to foresee and avoid difficulties in rebar installation, and spot clashes between rebar and rebar and cast-in items.
The center is scheduled to be delivered 30% faster than comparable healthcare projects in California, which requires implementation of lean construction principles and technologies such as BIM.
