Tekla to unveil new communication tool
Abu Dhabi, May 23, 2011
Tekla Corporation, a leader in digital information models, will showcase its new collaboration tool that offers a centralized way to communicate shared information at a construction summit that opened in Abu Dhabi today (May 23).
Organised by Meed, the Arabian World Construction Summit (AWCS) 2011 will run up to May 25 at Beach Rotana.
The freely available Tekla BIMsight can be used throughout the workflow of construction, from the design phase of the building to its erection and site management, a statement said.
Project participants can see the big picture as well as every important detail in the same, illustrative and easy-to-grasp 3D model, it added.
“The Middle East construction industry starts to show signs of recovery and AWCS provides a the perfect platform for decision makers to meet, discuss and hear of best practices that will ultimately help the construction industry recover from the crippling effects of the global economic crisis,” said Abdelrahman Muneer, marketing manager, Tekla ME.
“Tekla's mission is to drive the evolution to digital information modeling, multiplying our customers' potential to think and achieve big in their projects and businesses,” explained Tekla executive vice president Risto Räty.
“Understanding BIM (building information modeling) as a centralized process rather than 'just a model' requires cooperation and goodwill between the construction disciplines. This is exactly what we want to achieve with the new Tekla BIMsight software, and our part of the goodwill is to distribute it for free for the whole industry to easily take into use.”
Tekla BIMsight has been described as ’the missing link’ in the BIM software application because it enables accurate and effective 3D building information model-based project collaboration and management for everyone in the industry.
Tekla BIMsight software is ready to download for free at teklabimsight.com. Video tutorials and an online customer community make it easy for anyone to get started visualising and communicating with building information models.
The region’s construction industry will deliver projects worth $500 billion by 2015, said the organisers of AWCS. – TradeArabia News Service
