Tekla and CSC, both Trimble companies, are combining their operations. As a result, UK-based CSC, acquired by Trimble in November 2013, will rebrand and operate under the name Tekla starting today. CSC's structural engineering design solutions further strengthen Trimble’s offerings for the construction industry and complement Tekla’s portfolio, which now caters to the full structural engineering workflow.
“Development of CSC’s products will continue under the Tekla brand. Tekla offers investment capacity, technologies, industry expertise, and support, which translate to even more innovative new products for structural engineering,” said Mr. Risto Räty, Executive Vice President of Tekla and General Manager of Trimble Buildings Structures Division.
Being committed to Open BIM and reliable design interoperability, Tekla develops products that support a large number of integrations of Building Information Modeling and Building and Structural Design solutions and also interface with fabrication machinery. Tekla’s product portfolio now addresses the entire design process from single-member design to full design and detailing using models.
“CSC has a long history in the structural engineering software sector and is a leading brand for Analysis & Design (A&D) solutions, offering Fastrak and Orion for steel and concrete building design, Solve for FE analysis, and Tedds for structural calculations,” said Mr. Barry Chapman, Engineering Segment Director of Tekla. “By joining our operations, Tekla now delivers innovative software for structural engineers covering analysis, design, and BIM.”
Trimble is committed to providing a total solution for the Design-Build-Operate (DBO) lifecycle of buildings. Under their new brand name Tekla, CSC products will strengthen Trimble’s position for the DBO lifecycle with an enhanced design-to-detailing structural engineering workflow.
Both Tekla and CSC share expertise in the international building and construction market, including a large customer base in engineering organizations. Tekla is a fully global company while CSC has a strong presence in the UK, Asia, South Africa, the Middle East, and the US.
Tekla provides the construction industry a chance to achieve a greater competitive edge with Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Structural Design software. Established in 1966, Tekla has customers in over 100 countries, offices in over 20 countries, and a global partner network. Tekla Building & Construction is part of Trimble Buildings, a group focused on technology solutions that improve collaboration, efficiency, and accuracy across the Design-Build-Operate lifecycle of buildings.
