BIM - virtual construction benefits for real people
Software that we use allows us to meet the demands of construction market – high accuracy, lack of errors and collisions and easy collaboration with other engineers, fabricators, contractors and investors. We specialize in civil engineering structures and can provide complex structural design service from conceptual design to fabrication, erection and construction management.
With Tekla Structures, we are able to deliver even the most complex projects on time while avoiding many mistakes associated with traditional design process.
In our office we create accurate, richly detailed, highly constructable 3D structural model, which over time is being refined so that at the end becomes a perfect version of the finished building containing every screw or rebar. Such a three-dimensional model, also known as BIM model contains all the necessary information valuable not only for designers, it also improves the process of preparing for the implementation of the investment and is an invaluable asset on the site. It allows a better understanding of the project, coordination of the various aspects of the project and resolving conflicts between them before the start of construction.
Inconsistent and fragmented project data is a major problem in the management of the construction process. Therefore we create one structural model for the entire project from which all bill of materials and drawings are created. This documentation is free of geometric and quantitative differences and helps to eliminate the risk and delays in construction.
With Tekla Structures models we are able to easily identify the complexity of the project, provide detailed bills of materials, thus help determine the overall project budget and work schedules. Tekla model can be used to create highly accurate investment cost estimation not burdened with errors as in the traditional approach, in which the discrepancy between reality often reaches several percent.
Tekla Structures effectively integrates with the best software available on the market with the highest level of accuracy and consistency. Enables sharing model and drawing information with all major architectural and MEP modelling programs. Archicad, ADT, Revit Building, Nemetschek Allplan and Bentley Architecture are all IFC-compliant, as is Tekla Structures. Other legacy formats, such as DGN and DWG, are supported as well. These formats allow for an effective, two-way link for architects and engineers to share and coordinate project information. Such a smooth collaboration is the key to minimizing expensive delay and rework and results in cost-effectiveness and timeliness. Below is a list of cooperating programs:
Tekla BIMsight is a revolutionary tool for designers and contractors. It is free, professional tool for construction project collaboration. The entire construction workflow can combine their models, check for clashes and share information using the same easy-to-use BIM environment. Tekla BIM sight enables project participants to identify and solve issues already in the design phase before construction. Over 15000 professionals in the construction industry have already taken Tekla BIMsight in use in over 160 countries. It is a new Adobe Reader of AEC industry.
We can automatically generate fabrication information from the model and transfer it automatically to fabrication planning and automation systems. Increased automation saves time and brings down waste as it reduces human errors. Increase of automation throughout construction processes is an industry trend, so more and more projects are required to follow BIM process.
Our data rich, parametrically perfect, 3-D digital models produce a wide variety of deliverables. For precast and cast in place structures we are able to deliver accurate take-off of concrete volume, weight and rebar quantity. We support standards to automate the fabrication of rebar and precast elements: BVBS, Unitechnik, Eliplan, Elematic.
Similarly, for steel structures we are able to deliver all kinds of bills of materials, DSTV files for CNC machines, we support standards: Fabtrol / Kiss, EJE, EPC, Steel 2000.
