Manage Risk and Plan for Successful Construction Execution

Tekla software supports your construction coordination, quantity take-off, cost estimation, scheduling and sequencing. The constructible building information is accurate, consistent and always up-to-date.

Tekla software helps contractors manage risk and plan for successful construction projects. If you detect and avoid problems before construction begins, you minimise expensive delays and rework. Design insight and project predictability from preconstruction to execution delivers more effective planning, coordination and control.

With Tekla, you can create information-rich models, regardless of the file size or complexity, and combine these with models from many other authoring tools. The software also includes tools for project review and constructability analysis.  

Utilise Tekla

  • Coordinate all disciplines, resolve conflicts and plan projects before construction begins.
  • Improve collaboration between project parties.
  • Make informed decisions early in the process.

Model concrete and rebar

With Tekla, you can model reinforced cast in situ concrete – the software helps you effectively plan and manage pours and accommodate changes without delay.

Key benefits

  • Evaluate and understand the project before building.
  • Collaborate easily with other project parties.
  • Integrate modelling with cost estimation and scheduling.
  • Visualisations help everyone from senior management to site personnel.
  • Plan and manage your daily work. 


To ensure success at tender stage, a contractor needs to accurately measure and assign a cost to every material, resource and process. Tekla allows you to analyse constructability effectively in order to streamline and improve your preconstruction processes.

Understand and Analyse

Contractors need to understand the design intent early. Tekla helps you analyse project requirements and maintain control with accurate material quantification for cost estimation and construction scheduling, ensuring that projects are completed safely, on time and within budget.

To optimise cost and schedules, you can visually explore alternatives and analyse the model. Tekla’s fast and accurate material quantification helps validate tender data, estimate costs and improve procurement. With the model, your area measurement and building component take-off are quicker and easier.

Open Approach to BIM

Tekla’s open approach to Building Information Modelling means that the software can integrate or interface with standard industry planning and other applications such as Primavera, Asta and MS project. The software offers smooth real-time collaboration and information sharing between project teams. You can import 2D and 3D design data, regardless of file size, from architectural and plant design applications.

On site, Tekla software helps contractors answer the everyday challenges of change management, just-in-time material supply and logistics, delivering projects on time and within budget. You can manage and coordinate site operations using accurate model information. 

Utilise Tekla

  • Plan your operations day by day.
  • Deliver quality on time and within budget.
  • Improve design and task understanding.
  • Identify design errors and clashes early. 

Visualisation and the constructible 3D model improves design and task understanding and the rich information means that you can optimise subcontractor activity.  You can validate the construction plan utilising links to schedule information from MS Project, Excel, Asta or Primavera.  Everyone on site can utilise the models for free with Tekla BIMsight, our professional tool for construction collaboration.

On the construction site, real world layout points can be added to the Tekla model and later managed and exported to layout or survey equipment.  Field measuring data can then be imported back into the model, enabling accurate reporting of as-built versus design intent.

We constantly test and develop Tekla Structures. The industry uses it to create, combine and distribute highly detailed, accurate and information-rich structural models. The models provide open, readable data for manufacturing and for exporting to other solutions. Although Tekla is ready to use, the software is also highly customisable.

Tekla software works with all materials, so a model can include steel, precast, cast in situ concrete, timber and any other material. Being able to import, visualise and understand models from other project teams ensures that any issues are resolved before construction begins.  Also, the software comes with a library of design details and users can model, store and share custom components like specific connections. 

Tekla offers services close to you. Enjoy local support, training, consultation and online services like Tekla User Assistance.

We plan the software implementation together with the customer which helps them save money and time, ensuring effective use of the software. Our experienced local Tekla staff will find the solutions that best suit your company's needs.
