Tekla Solutions: Charting a model-based approach

 Concrete construction is a huge industry in India.Various advancements and technology breakthroughs have immensely revolutionized the concrete construction industry in the recent times.

The methods and process of concrete construction have now taken up a more advanced and automated form.They have become more swift and easier with introduction of IT technology equipped solutions.For a construction company to live up in this constantly rising pace of construction industry, it is very necessary that it adopts advanced technologies like Tekla Solutions available for the industry. Cast-in-place concrete is an integral element of every building structure and therefore a major concern with contractors.Tekla structures for cast-in-place or reinforced concrete structures is a BIM solution that allows concrete contractors, concrete engineers and rebar detailers to participate in the entire construction process.Tekla structures provide a model based approach where all construction information and details are stored in a central 3D model. These details include various concrete shapes and volumes, concrete mix information, rebar types and qualities and much more. Since the information is stored in a central 3D model, it is readily accessible making tasks like quality take offs and estimation very rapid and efficient. Further, information on volume of concrete by pour, rebar schedules, pour schedules can be quickly generated and viewed in a formatted report or exported to Microsoft excel. Tekla structures BIM software is a powerful tool that integrates reinforcement information with building materials and follows the entire project from design through to construction. It is the only solution where rebar information such as rebar bending schedules can be integrated and used for construction purposes. Tekla BIM is free and to be used for design coordination in al BIM projects-big and small.

With its software, Tekla drives the evolution of digital information models and thus provides more and more competitive advantage to the construction, infrastructure and energy industries. The company was established already in 1966 and today it has customers in 100 countries, offices in 15 countries and a global partner network.Tekla became part of Trimble Group in 2011. Tekla BIM sight is a professional tool for construction project collaboration. All disciplines of the construction workflow can combine their models, check for clashes, markup and share information using the same easy to use 3D environment. Tool enables project participants to identify and solve issues already in the design phase before the actual construction.
