Engineering Offices

Project teams in engineering offices are under constant pressure to deliver quality work on projects of ever-increasing complexity, all of this with tight deadlines to meet. Quality and precision are always required. Engineers must learn new codes and design techniques, draftsmen must deliver error-free drawings and lists, project managers coordinate different trades, each with their own tools and habits.

Our software solutions give you the power to efficiently and reliably design and detail simple to complex structures like residential and office buildings, high-rise towers, industrial structures or bridges and other infrastructure projects. Improve your 3D workflows, centralize your design and documentation tasks thanks to state-of-the-art software and services that will increase the productivity of your team.

Modelling and detaili​ng with Allplan Engineering

By building a 3D model of the project within Allplan Engineering early in the design stage, the project team is able to make better informed decisions earlier, and to save on unnecessary rework in the later stages. The BIM-approach (Building Information Modelling) gives access to instant associative views for elevations and sections, bending lists and bills of material, which are automatically updated no matter what modifications are done to the project. The state-of-the-art 3D reinforcement detailing gives you the freedom to detail any structural part in an accurate way.

Structural analysis an​d design with Scia Engineer

With the Round-Trip Engineering technology, that same structural model can be sent to Scia Engineer, where the engineer transforms it into an analysis model, loads it and calculates it thanks to an extremely fast and accurate finite element solver. From there, the structural elements are designed and optimized to a variety of international codes.

The Active Document and automated GA drawings will greatly reduce the time for preparing the calculation reports with a professional look. 

Open BIM and model quality assurance

When you want to collaborate with teams using different software solutions, the certified IFC support of our 3D software and strong commitment to Open BIM guarantees that the data will not be blocked at your doors.

Solibri Model Checker is the central tool for quality assurance of your IFC-based BIM models thanks to its unique rule-checking technology. Collision control, coordinating and communicating your BIM models have never been so easy.
