Tekla model-based information management for Precast

With the advent of the mass housing projects under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), there has been more demand than ever for leaner, greener and faster construction, and that is the reason the precast industry is now growing – and yet, precast detailers and fabricators still face obstacles.

 A key challenge is that they still need to convince potential clients that precast is a better choice than other construction methods.

The answer lies in working with a model-based information management process.  With a model-based information management process, you can quickly:

  • Design and compare different structural solutions to choose the best concept
  • Get quantities for accurate cost estimates and manage changes
  • Visualize the concept and schedule for the client

Tekla belives and adopts this model-based information management.

A model-based workflow with Tekla software minimizes costly surprises and waste, improves efficiency and quality, and ensures that the correct, error-free elements are delivered in the right place at the time.

With Tekla you can work with any structure regardless of material, size or complexity. Because the software integrates design and detailing with fabrication and project management, you can  streamline the entire precast workflow from bidding to delivery. Tekla allows accurate estimation and thus winning more bids and increasing profits. You can detail any precast concrete structure, improve document production, plan and control fabrication and find potential problems with your constructible model.

The software interfaces with production management systems (ERP) and precast and rebar production machinery (CAD-CAM). The information-rich models allow you to coordinate design, fabrication and site operations and ensure delivery according to the schedule.

The market need is for a system that delivers the maximum and on-time.In this regard, Tekla is organised a webinar in association with Inventaa on the topic Precast- that fits On-Site, On-Time & On-Budget. The point of discussions for the webinar are-

  • Inventaa’s success story with BDA’s large-scale affordable housing project
  • How they managed to deliver a 10% extra carpet area within the same project budget
  • Their experience of Tekla Structures & Trimble Connect’s immense capabilities
  • A peek into Tekla Structures for Precast and Trimble Connect

It was scheduled at 3.30 pm, August 26th, 2020. The speakers are Sumedh Gupta, General Manager Inventaa Industries, and Manju Bhargavi Thota Trimble Solutions India.

Inventaa Industries chose to partner with Tekla and utilize their constructible BIM solution – Tekla Structures – on a large-scale affordable housing project awarded to them by the Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA), which involved the construction of 1320 apartments spread over 33 Blocks of a 5-storied apartment complex.

Tekla BIM Software

Tekla Structures’ capabilities as a constructible BIM software delivering data-rich, high LOD 3D models allowed Inventaa to develop high-quality and low-cost precast concrete structures for this project, which were instrumental in keeping the construction costs low. Utilizing the combined benefits of Tekla Structures & Trimble Connect (cloud-based collaboration platform) Inventaa could deliver a 10% extra carpet area within the same project budget.
