To make a profitable tender, a contractor needs to measure and give price to every material, resource and process. Tekla allows you to analyze constructability effectively in order to streamline and improve preconstruction processes.
Understand and Analyze
To win profitable work, contractors need to understand the design intent early. Tekla helps you analyze project requirements and keep in control: Benefit from accurate material quantification for cost estimation and construction scheduling and complete projects safely, on time and within budget.
To optimize cost and schedules, you can visually explore alternatives and analyze the model. Tekla’s fast and accurate material quantification helps analyze and validate tender data, estimate costs and improve procurement. With the model, your area measurement and building component counting 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 and Asta, and MS project. The software offers smooth real-time collaboration and information sharing between the project parties. 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 to the everyday challenges of change management, just in time material supply and logistics and deliver projects as planned and budgeted. You can manage and coordinate site operations and benefit from the accurate model information.
- Plan your operations day by day.
- Deliver quality on time and within budget.
- Improve design and task understanding.
- Identify design errors and clashes early.
Visualization and the constructable 3D model improves design and task understanding and the rich information means that you can optimize subcontractor activity and have the right amounts of materials procured and monitored. You can validate the construction plan utilizing links to schedule information from MS Project, Excel or Primavera. Everyone on the site can utilize the models with Tekla BIMsight, professional and free 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.
