Tekla Structures

With Tekla Structures you can create accurate, information-rich 3D models that contain all the structural data needed for building and maintaining the structure. Tekla models are truly constructible because they can reach LOD 500 which is currently the highest level of development. High LOD, as-built models minimize costly surprises, RFI’s (requests for information) and result for more profitable projects.

You can import, export, and link your data with other software solutions, digital construction tools, and fabrication machinery. Read more about interoperability and our approach to Open BIM.

Tekla Structures is localized to fit your local construction industry standards. The software is available in 17 languages and 32 environments that include predefined region-specific settings and information. We offer local support and training to get started smoothly with the software.
