Tekla and GRAPHISOFT Demonstrate Global Open BIM Workflow


Interoperability between GRAPHISOFT’s ArchiCAD and Tekla Structures enables open BIM collaboration between AEC disciplines despite their geographical location. Join a live global webinar on November 23 to learn more.

Throughout the construction project, the building information models of different disciplines need to be coordinated. GRAPHISOFT and Tekla have been working together for years to develop a smooth exchange of building information across the AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) disciplines by enabling open communication between their respective software systems. The companies continuously collaborate to introduce new features that allow Tekla Structures and ArchiCAD software users to communicate more efficiently and seamlessly between each other in order to improve the open BIM (Building Information Modeling) process.

“BIM brings unique advantages to the design team when implementing it on a larger scale between different disciplines. However, architects can often run into bottlenecks regarding the complexity of the configuration when exchanging the models and regarding the responsibilities of each party about the changes effected” says Miklos Szovenyi-Lux, VP of Product Management, at GRAPHISOFT. “ArchiCAD 14 includes improved Tekla support for open BIM and we are committed to providing best-in-class workflow solutions with leading BIM providers such as Tekla around the world.”

“Open BIM is an effort we gladly participate in,” says Laura Virros, Director of Project Delivery at Tekla. “We have a close and rewarding relationship with GRAPHISOFT that we intend to maintain in order to enhance open BIM collaboration now and in the future...”

On November 23, 2010, eleven experts around the world from GRAPHISOFT, Tekla, DDS-CAD and Arktec will demonstrate the power of open collaboration without borders through a webinar presentation. Based in Birmingham, Boston, Budapest, Helsinki, Madrid, Munich, Oslo, and Sydney, and using the GRAPHISOFT BIM Server, these colleagues will demonstrate how Delta Server™ technology reduces network traffic to a minimum for instant and reliable data-exchange both within the office and over the Internet.

If you work in a design team as an architect, engineer or consultant and need to coordinate your design with other disciplines; if your operation is geographically spread out or you need remote access to your BIM projects; or, if you are simply interested in seeing the evolution of BIM collaboration happening now, Tekla and GRAPHISOFT encourage you and all interested parties to join this live webinar about open BIM collaboration.
