TDS Takes on Top Projects with Tekla

TDS recognises the need for the highest levels of professionalism in an extremely challenging industry. We are well placed to ensure that designs are translated into cost effective production and installation processes for all Architectural Metalwork, Structural and Secondary Steelwork projects.

TDS services range from design consultancy to detailed drawings, and 3D (BIM) Modelling. We utilise Tekla, the leading 3D steel detailing software for the Steelwork industry, to produce data rich 3D models which form part of the wider Building Information Modelling (BIM) services. The software provides an accurate, dynamic, and data-rich 3D environment that can be shared with our contractors, structural engineers, steel detailers and fabricators, as well as concrete detailers and manufacturers.

The highly detailed as-built structural models created, combined and distributed with Tekla Structures enable us to ensure the highest level of constructability and production control. We can allow for further collaborative and integrated project management and delivery, which in turn translates into increased productivity and elimination of waste, thus making construction and buildings more sustainable.

TDS has used Tekla Structures to provide high specification designs on a number of internationally renowned projects including The Olympic Stadium, Terminal 5 Heathrow, Castle House Tower ‘The Razor’, The Houses of Parliament, The Gherkin, The Royal Observatory, The Westfield Shopping Centre and Newcastle United and Cardiff City Football Stadiums.

One TDS project that utilised Tekla software was Castle House Tower AKA ‘The Razor’ now a prominent feature in the South London skyline.

Dan Leech Managing Director of TDS Midlands says “We find Tekla’s ability to model complex projects in great detail invaluable for providing our customers with accurate manufacturing information. The ability to share information in a BIM compliant format in line with government guidelines for April 2016 has meant we can now engage with the wider design team in a far more efficient manner”
