SteelFab is taking place at the Expo Centre Sharjah from 9 – 12 January, and Tekla, which was recently acquired by Trimble, is showcasing its robust and highly acclaimed BIM solutions for the construction industry and, in particular, steel fabrication expertise.
The regional structural steel industry is facing considerable challenges due to shorter lead times, lack of complete information, problems in revision handling, and a wider need to collaborate with other disciplines.
“Working with Tekla Structures BIM software is the most advanced and integrated way to manage detailing, fabrication and erection of all steel structures such as commercial buildings, industrial plants, sports stadiums, offshore platforms and jackets including miscellaneous steel work,” commented Tahir Sharif, Managing Director, Tekla ME.
Key benefits of Tekla Structures for the steel industry include:
•Winning more tenders through accurate estimation
•Effective, high-quality detailing
•Integrating downstream and upstream
•Easy project follow-up in real time
No other tool on the market supports information management throughout the process and creates comparable new business opportunities.
Tekla Structures BIM is a model-based solution to increase productivity through higher automation of fabrication and project management by interfacing with MIS systems and CNC machinery.
Tekla Structures BIM enables the most data-rich, highly constructible 3D and 4D structural building information models to date, and is a significant contrast to current document-based platforms where drawings and reports are distributed and reworked among different organizations.
Furthermore Tekla Structures BIM software ensures that all project managers, production managers, and purchasing departments receive reliable project information during the fabrication process.
Information needed for production can be automatically generated from the Tekla model. The information can then be transferred to production planning and automation systems, reducing the amount of manual work and data re-entry as well as the risk of errors.
“Tekla will use the platform provided by SteelFab to help the Middle East construction industry realise the benefits of implementing BIM technology across their projects,” added Sharif.
As well as running live demonstrations of its entire product range, Tekla will host senior managers to discuss specific customer issues in a one-to-one environment.
Representatives from Tekla will be available throughout SteelFab to provide a detailed overview. Tekla stand is located in Hall 4, Stand 178, Expo Centre Sharjah.
