Estimation

Model-based working helps you manage risk, win more bids and grow profits

With Tekla Structures you can quickly create conceptual models and generate accurate quantitiy take offs for estimation and bidding.  Having a 3D model creates a more visual and professional presentation at the bidding phase that will help your clients to better understand the whole project. This provides you a powerful sales tool to win more projects.

Model-based working helps you ensure that project can be built efficiently in terms of time, cost and safety. You can easily share the model and project documentation with any interested parties using Trimble Connect.

 

Main benefits:

Create realistic bids and cost estimates

  • Study alternative structural solutions for structures with fast intelligent modeling
  • Create cost estimates by extracting bill of materials from the model.
  • Identify potential problems early in the project to ensure successful construction.

 

 

 

Effective project coordination

  • Import the architect’s 3D designs and other non-structural reference data and manage it using Tekla Structures. 
  • Integrate Tekla models with industrial plant modeling solutions.
  • Integrate Tekla models with structural analysis software to speed up the design process.
  • Exchange data with estimation software solutions. 

 

 

Communicate your steel concept

  • Demonstrate the advantages of your structural solution by producing high quality sales presentations with powerful visualizations and animations directly from Tekla 3D model.  
  • Extract all types of associative drawings when required.

With Tekla you can

  • Produce accurate model data that enables you to estimate project time and costs
  • Discover alternative structural solutions
  • Ensure constructibility of your project and find potential problems early
  • Present your bid clearly and visually to your client
