Optimise BIM for Structural Design and Manufacturing
In Singapore, Tekla Structures is frequently used where structural detailing is critical, and design is used for manufacturing and assembly. Tekla is commonly used by Concrete Contractors, Steel Fabricators, Precast Fabricators, Structural Engineers.
For concrete contractors, Tekla helps them to estimate, plan and manage concrete pours due to the availability of quality information and constructible models that are built for concrete construction. By improving estimates and schedules, as well as automating quantity take offs, it enhances pour planning and on-site productivity.
For steel detailers and fabricators, Tekla allows a lightweight detailed BIM model of steel structure. This allows for the BIM model to be used throughout the entire steel workflow, from engineering design, detailing and fabrication management to site operations. Changes can be managed easily and it optimises the fabrication process with intelligent interfaces.
For precast fabricators, Tekla integrates design and detailing with fabrication and project management so that the entire precast workflow can be streamlined from bidding to delivery. Any precast concrete structure can be detailed, thus allowing for accurate estimation, improved, document production, and greater fabrication control. It interfaces with production management systems and precast and rebar production machinery.
For structural engineers, Tekla offers structural analysis and design, production of professional calculations and construction drawings, as well as full detailing services.
