BIM Technology – Precast

BIM Technology

Precast Engineering

For the precast concrete industry, the powerful 3D technology of Building Information Modeling (BIM) means moving from 2D drawings to a 3D model that can be shared digitally to provide both cost and time savings.  BIM also generates  more consistent data.  Precast concrete serves a critical function in the building process and a 3D BIM precast model implemented in the planning and design stages can streamline fabrication, scheduling, and shipping. 

Tekla® Structures is the 3D BIM software used by the precast industry to work like a model-based encyclopedia of a project, while improving communication between project team members, and managing information more efficiently.   DEVITA has invested heavily in the Precast version of this software, with the goal that every step of the design process is realized – from estimation and bidding, detailing, fabrication, planning and coordinating – right through the project’s completion.
