Recently, Bentley Systems, the global leader dedicated to providing architects, engineers, constructors, and owner-operators with comprehensive architecture and engineering software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, partnered with S-Cube Futuretech Pvt. Ltd. to provide the most comprehensive concrete building design workflow for the Indian market.
This integrated solution is called STAAD.building and it addresses the entire workflow related to the design of reinforced concrete buildings, including conceptual layout and framing, advanced analysis, design and detailing and the production of site-ready drawings along with bill-of-quantity reports. STAAD.building combines the power of STAAD.Pro’s analytical engine with the purpose-built building modelling, design and drawing solutions from S-Cube.
It extends STAAD.Pro, which anchors Bentley's world-leading structural analysis and design software, to accommodate the intricate needs of drawings and design of reinforced concrete structures per Indian standards. The key differentiator is the workflow. Unlike any other software in the Indian market, it helps engineers to conceptualize the engineering model by suggesting preliminary member sizes based on the framing layout, loading conditions, and geographical location. The model is generated in a physical environment to help you generate an analytical model automatically behind the scenes but also offers you the power of STAAD.Pro’s analytical modeling environment to optimize building configurations. It combines the power of a physical modeling system along with an analytical text editor to offer the best possible tools to address every possible need of a building designer.
This is the only solution in the Indian market that completes the workflow by offering an interactive physical member design environment along with complete detailing and drawing generation. Early adopters indicated that drawings are of very high quality and meet the intricate requirements of site-ready drawings. Another recent addition is Bar Bending Schedule (BBS) creation. After detailing structural members, a detailed BBS can be generated in compliance with the Indian detailing standards.
STAAD.building is a bundle package of four products:
