Structural Trades

Built for Building Information Modeling. Engineers, fabricators, and construction professionals are under the same cost and time pressures as every professional in every phase of the design, plan and construction lifecycle. That’s where building information modeling (BIM) comes in.

BIM, built on reliable, constructible, digital project information, adds value by creating, managing and sharing the properties of a building throughout its lifecycle. For those who work with Tekla solutions, BIM can incorporate physical, commercial, manufacturing and operational data.

Tekla creates software to deliver upon the promise of data-driven manufacture, and simulated construction. With Tekla software, engineers, detailers, fabricators and construction professionals can more easily enjoy the benefits of coordinated, rich data and use that information to improve building performance, appearance, and cost-effectiveness. As a result, they complete their projects faster and more economically.

Reliable, coordinated, and more accurate information about a building or structure also provides better design insight, production documentation, and construction predictability. Tekla software helps minimize project inefficiencies -- creating projects that stay on time and on budget, satisfying clients and providing opportunities for repeat business.

Tekla solutions for BIM help the construction industry improve quality, increase profits, and reduce risk. For more information, visit
