Model-based software


Tekla is a technology company producing model based software for the construction and engineering markets. There are many products in the Tekla family, but the ones we are best known for are:


Tekla Structures - is a 3D modelling BIM software. (Building Information Modelling) Tekla Structures is used to create a fully detailed 3D model of structures built in steel or concrete with state-of-the-art features for creating, analyzing, and changing model-based information. The model created is highly detailed, providing a constructible level of detail (equivalent to the Digital Plan of Works Stage 5 - Build & Commission) and is used to drive manufacturing, fabrication and on-site construction of the structure.

Tekla Structural Designer - enables Structural Engineers to analyze and design buildings efficiently by creating optimised designs for steel and concrete structures. The information rich models contain all the intelligence needed to fully automate the design and effectively manage project changes. Alternative schemes can quickly be created for comparison to establish the most cost effective build solution.


Tekla Tedds - allows Engineers to automate repetitive structural calculations. The extensive libraries of calculations, the ability to create your own calculations and ease of creating  professional documentation makes Tedds the structural calculation software of choice for Engineers throughout the construction industry.
