Tekla Structures

Tekla Structures is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for construction projects. The software creates accurate structural models with detailed information that can be used from conceptual design through fabrication and construction. Tekla Structures integrates 3D modeling, drawing production, and project management into a single environment. The program supports steel detailing, rebar detailing, precast concrete detailing, engineering design services, and fabrication workflows. With its ability to automatically generate lists and reports directly from the building model, Tekla helps contractors streamline the planning process by improving collaboration among different parties involved in construction projects.
