(MENAFN Press) Tekla Structures 20 improves project team communication, collaboration and workflow efficiency by better organizing models, managing tasks, avoiding clashes, and handling the large amounts of information required for today's complex structure



Tekla, a leader in bringing Building Information Modeling (BIM) software to the engineering and construction markets, today announced the availability of Tekla Structures 20. The newest version of Tekla's BIM software improves construction workflow efficiency by providing the means to better organize models, manage tasks and avoid structural clashes. What's more, the constructable models created with Tekla can incorporate more detailed information than ever before



As BIM penetrates construction industry processes, architectural trends produce increasingly complex shapes, and buildings include more refined technology, information exchange becomes progressively more important. While information management remains at the core of BIM, building today's structures requires more information than ever before. Tekla Structures 20 meets this requirement by expanding the capacity of constructable Tekla models to easily handle the large amounts of information needed to accurately reflect the detail contained in complex build structures



New Tools for Better Information Managemen

Tekla Structures 20 brings even more detailed information and flexibility to modeling, while reducing the need for manual data transfer. Information now flows more efficiently from design, purchasing and production to the shop floor. Tekla also provides more links to analysis and design (A&D) solutions to remove the technical and compatibility barriers that compromise workflow between project teams and subcontractors using different types of applications.



To ease the management of the massive amounts of constructable building information needed for contemporary structures, Tekla Structures 20 also offers several improved tools

Organizer delivers more efficient model information management and increased automation

Task Manager offers a systematic way to plan detailing, fabrication and erection on site.

Clash Check Manager allows communicating, assigning, coordinating and avoiding structural conflicts before they appear on site to help save money and time.



"Tekla Structures 20 contributes to the essential processes of today's information-intensive construction industry," said Risto Rty, Executive Vice President of Tekla and General Manager of Trimble Buildings' Structures Division. "Ultimately, construction is about collaboration. When information is missing it is hard to work effectively with other construction team members to avoid preventable delays and cost overruns. Tekla Structures 20 dramatically improves project team communication and collaboration by providing the detail needed for building complex structures, offering process-improving tools, and effortlessly working with other software applications, thereby delivering on the promise of BIM for the construction industry.
