When we talk about sturdy building structures the demon part is detailing. Steel detailing is the most crucial part for strengthening building structures. The structural analysis and design along with sufficient steel detailing and accurate execution of a construction project assures no cracks, deflections and saves you from building collapse.
When the contractor is assigned the project the steel detailing, which is then worked upon by detailer strictly working confine on 2D drawings. Now this is the beginning of the process that triggers a late start and results in terrible coordination among stakeholders that can put at risk in construction schedules.
Advanced tools are used to tackle these situations such as Tekla to develop steel fabrication drawings.The advantage of starting detailing after the design phase based on drawings received from structural designer,makes it easy to coordinate steel with the structure and enhance construction quality.
More than project coordination steel detailing for Tekla aids in enhancing the overall quality of steel structures. It enables teams to design on their own and deliver project fabrication package efficiently and cost effectively. The 3D modelling environment enables you to break away from complex design issues by leveraging benefits such as 3D views and live schedules to check steel.
Projects schedules will no longer delay
With every drawing sheet of Tekla, 2D and 3D view and schedule is an actual presentation of the underlying building structure. All your drawings and views are well managed and in sync with automatic sync.For instance you change a steel in model and that will reflect on your fabrication drawing, cutting down on tedious manual updating stuff
What matters the most in any business is high rewards at affordable share. Tekla helps you in estimating the steel along with the automated generation of Bill-of materials. This saves labour and material cost.
Better Understanding of Construction
For a model based projection incorporated with fabrication drawings you are unlikely to face any in-site issues of scheduling or redrawing.
