GRAPHISOFT and Tekla Team Up for Best-in-Class AEC Workflow
GRAPHISOFT and Tekla Structures announce a global partnership to offer a best-in-class software solution for architecture and structural engineering practices. Workflow-level integration of ARCHICAD and Tekla Structures – unique in the AEC market - enables true collaboration among the disciplines.
For more than 20 years, GRAPHISOFT and Tekla have been dedicated to offering the highest quality BIM (Building Information Modeling) software in their respective fields of architecture and structural engineering. In recent years, increasing numbers of AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) practices have adopted a BIM-based workflow. Model-based collaboration among the different professions, however, is still relatively immature, even between practices that use software solutions from the same vendor.
“The real issue with integration is not file compatibility but workflow compatibility,” says Viktor Várkonyi, Chief Executive Officer at GRAPHISOFT. “Opening each other’s files is not nearly enough; handling each other’s model in an intelligent way is what makes a BIM collaboration workflow truly productive.”
”Both Tekla Structures and ARCHICAD cover the entire design and documentation workflow till the end of a construction project,” says Risto Räty, Executive VP of Building & Construction at Tekla. “Together, they support the BIM process in a unique way and are thus the preferred partners that ensure the highest-quality end result in any project. The benefit of using these tools is above all the downstream constructability they offer, from conceptual design to erection and site management.”
