Trimble recently hosted its annual Tekla User Days (TUD) virtual event to advance the skillset as well as the expertise in Tekla software of several experts, users and construction industry professionals across the Middle East and India
The event kicked off with Paul Wallett, regional director of Trimble Solutions, Middle East and India, giving an insight on the construction landscape in the region and how various construction technologies have played a prominent role in successfully delivering projects on time. Participants at the event were presented with several case studies from the Middle East and India highlighting various industry concepts of building information model (BIM), sustainability, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and robotics, along with several workshops, trainings, live Q&A sessions, project presentations, and numerous competitions organised by the Trimble.
Tekla is Trimble's state-of-the-art digital software solution which has been employed on several impressive structures in the Middle East such as the Burj Khalifa, Museum of the Future, Ain Dubai and One Za'abeel tower. The solution has significantly aided in enhancing productivity, as well as on-time completion of these complex structures.
Wallett said, “Lack of knowledge on using the latest technologies is one of the main reasons why companies fail to adopt these innovations. Professionals in the construction sector must be highly trained and well-educated on employing the modern technologies prevalent in the industry. Our virtual TUD is aimed at addressing these problems and enhancing the skills of all Tekla users. All the attendees were given a chance to engage in this virtual event and develop new skill sets. We look forward to seeing them incorporate these software solutions into upcoming projects in the Middle East.”
Topics discussed during the event included ‘BIM: From Revolution to Evolution', ‘All new Tekla Structures 2022 – Feature Presentations’, ‘Empowering Tekla Users with self-sufficiency’, ‘Sustainable impact of paperless organisations’, and ‘The Future is Now for Robots in Construction."
