Read all about advantages, benefits, opportunities provided by Tekla.

Tekla is a software product family that consists of programs for analysis and design, detailing and project communication.

Tekla Structures is 3D building information modeling (BIM) software used in the building and construction industries for steel and concrete detailing, precast and cast in-situ. BIM brings the opportunity to try out solutions in advance before building the structure on site: with a constructable model, the structure can be prototyped virtually.

The software enables users to create and manage 3D structural models in concrete or steel, and guides them through the process from concept to fabrication. The process of shop drawing creation is automated. Along with the creation of CNC-files, files for controlling reinforcement bending machines, controlling precast concrete manufacturing, importing in PLM-systems etc. Tekla Structures is available in different configurations and localised environments to suit different segment- and culture-specific needs.

Tekla Structural Designer is a software solution for analysis and design of buildings. It is used  by structural engineers who work on concrete and steel buildings.

Tekla Software allows for complete information collaboration between architects, engineers, and contractors, allowing each to share and coordinate project information.


With Tekla, you can generate accurate quantities faster. Because all information is created in 3D, it is easier to adapt to changes in design during the bidding phase. Because quantity takeoffs are performed in the same solution with planning, all of your estimates are rooted in solid planning information. You can model and visualize large amounts of fully detailed rebar quickly and easily. You can produce placing drawings, schedules and foresee and avoid difficulties in installation of rebars.

Engineers have used Tekla Structures to model stadiums, offshore structures, plants, factories, residential buildings, bridges and skyscrapers. Tekla Structures was used in the construction design for various projects around the world.

Now, Trimble (Tekla Corporation is now called Trimble) announces Tekla 2017 Software for the construction Industry.

“In these new Tekla versions, we focus on improving communication and modeling methods because these are directly tied to the productivity of core tasks within large workgroups and projects,” said Jari Heino, general manager of Trimble’s Structures Division. “The software provides a variety of completely new tools for users to expand their scope of work and collaborate with project stakeholders to ensure that the entire team is on the same page.”

With Tekla software, it is possible to make sure that everything fits before it is built – providing accurate, consistent and always up-to-date constructible building information, which will reduce time and money spent on a project.
