To say that the concrete construction industry, or the overall construction industry for that matter, has changed with advances made in technology is an understatement. Once expensive and time-consuming, construction projects are now happening much more quickly and for a lot less money, thanks to, for the most part, a combination of emerging technologies.
One such technology is the advanced BIM software available in the market that has made construction projects more simplified. BIM software, or 3D modelling software programs have now replaced hand-made blueprints and even individual CAD drawings, with interactive 3-D models. Instead of the project review processes taking place in stages, everyone involved in a project can create and access a model simultaneously, resulting in fewer mistakes and fewer opportunities for miscommunication.
Below is an example of how Tekla Software helps contractors estimate, plan and pour concrete more efficiently and with confidence.
