What benefits utilizing BIM and Tekla software brought to the project?

Considering the complex nature of works at various stages of construction including the strengthening of as-built structure, the Tekla Structures steel structures modelling played a vital role in the successful completion of this project. Tekla BIMsight was used extensively to identify the clashes with other trades and those clashes were resolved in the modelling stage itself. IFC's were regularly used along with model screenshots to share progress with the client whilst also being able to show clear details and ensure fabrication / welding would not have any unforeseen issues.
