All project types and sizes, even specialized projects
Tekla Structures is powerful and flexible software for all types of projects. Speed up your work with an extensive library of standard connections for different types of projects. You can create a detailed, constructible 3D model of any steel structure from everyday industrial and commercial buildings to stadiums and high rise buildings. Working with Tekla is the most accurate, integrated way to manage detailing, production and erection.
Collaborate and share design and detailing data, material requirements and project status from design to erection phase. Save time with specialized PEB tools and achieve a smooth workflow.
Light metal framing
Create constructible models for different market sectors: including residential, commercial and health care. Reduce errors in fabrication and erection with improved model accuracy and communication with other project parties. All the relevant details and information for fabrication and erection of the light metal framing elements are also included. You are free to model shapes of different complexity. Speed up your modelling with i.e. dedicated components to model frame, straight or curved panels, ceilings and more. In addition, you can build your own adaptable components and tools using extensive and flexible Tekla Structures API. Tekla Structures is ideal for engineers and detailers involved in the design, specification and detailing of multimaterial projects, including light metal framing, modular, off-site, cold formed steel and sustainable building projects.

Aluminium curtain walling and facades
Using Tekla Structures also for your facade elements or aluminium curtain walling helps to collaborate with architects, clients and other project parties easier. Detect possible collisions in multimaterial environment. Solve complicated connections, issues, and plan logistics and erection sequences in a realistic constructible model.
Model or combine different types of projects into one model: all parts of the structure including not only steel and concrete, but also a variety of facade elements, such as glazing, gaskets, fixings and more.
Build your own adaptable components and tools using extensive and flexible Tekla Structures API.
You can model even the largest structures. Everything in a project fits into a Tekla model: 4D visualizations, pipes, welds and bolts. You can also use the model to get information about weight of the structure and the position of the center of gravity, and the information also serves maintenance and eventual decommissioning. Interface with plant design software reference models to support accurate design. Benefit from the model throughout the structure lifecycle. Read more
