When you detail elements that repeat in your project you can choose between several ways of doing it efficiently. Watch this video to learn three alternative ways of handling repetition.
Tekla intelligent 3D BIM software helps precast fabricators work more efficiently. Tekla software helps at every stage of the process to ensure error-free project delivery in time and on budget.
With the right tools, you can rest easy knowing your documents are up-to-date, error free and clearly communicated to the jobsite and factory.
BIM brings value and efficiency also to small precast projects like the award-winning One Theater Square Parking Garage.
Betset, one of the largest precast concrete companies in Finland, is taking advantage of real-time, automated and open data exchange in their business.
Learn how the most advanced, purpose-built BIM software, Tekla Structures, improves productivity of precast detailers and producers.
Luminary is a multiform high rise building with very strict tolerance demands. Success relates to model-based design and collaboration as well as sharing and utilizing model data on site.
The BIM-based design has been at the core of the project right from the start. This Finnish hospital project got the special recognition award at the Tekla Global BIM Awards 2018.
New design-to-cost tool makes it significantly faster to do value engineering and find the most economical solutions for your precast projects working directly in Tekla modeling environment.
Thanks to BIM, the company finds possible errors already with the model which saves plenty of time and money compared to recognizing errors in production phase.
With the new technologies reshaping the construction industry, Pittsburgh Flexicore set out to implement BIM principles throughout its sales, estimating, production and erection business practices.
Valuable time and accuracy can be lost by manually scaling distances, calculating angles from plans, turning angles with theodolites, and pulling tapes to measure distances.
Here’s how you can win more bids, improve profitability and optimize the entire precast workflow.
The project was relatively detailed and complex. We needed to erect new elements between existing ones. The 3D model was our main reference point, enabling us total control over the entire project.
BIM increased clarity and project understanding throughout the project team and supply chain, resulting in faster cycle times and more automated higher-quality fabrication processes.
Kassian Dyck & Associates could not have detailed the total precast building to the fast-track schedule without the extensive 3D modeling benefits provided in Tekla Structures.
Modeling thousands of parts and panels of the housing complex in 3D, including steel as well as both precast and cast-in-place concrete structures, helped the engineering office tackle their timeline.
All erection drawings, shop tickets, reinforcing bars, connections and drawings were generated and completed within the 3D environment of Tekla Structures.
Having the Tekla model has been a great advantage to us. It’s been much easier to understand this highly complex structure, and by using this technology we have avoided many errors.
Aas-Jakobsen needed an efficient way to collaborate.
