In the dynamic world of construction, innovation and efficiency are key drivers of success. Companies that pioneer groundbreaking solutions are not only appreciated but also warmly embraced by the industry. In this context, the partnership between Lindapter International and Trimble Tekla stands as a testament to collaboration at its best.

Who is Lindapter?

Lindapter International is the leading manufacturer of steel connections in the construction industry. Our unique approach involves using steel connection systems that eliminate the need for drilling or welding during installation. This revolutionary method speeds up processes, enhances safety, and offers flexibility in steel connections.

We serve a diverse range of customers, including architects, engineers, steel fabricators, contractors, and construction companies. What sets us apart is our innovative steel connection solutions that make installation faster, safer, and more flexible.

Who is Trimble Tekla?

Trimble Tekla, on the other hand, is a leading provider of Building Information Modelling (BIM) software. Their software solutions play a pivotal role in the construction industry, aiding in accurate project planning, execution, and management.

Why Lindapter Wanted This Partnership

Lindapter's distinctive workflow, centered around expansion bolts for Hollow Structural Section, necessitated a seamless integration with a BIM software.

By collaborating with Trimble Tekla, Lindapter aimed to provide a more efficient and accessible solution to design and engineering professionals in the construction industry. We wanted to bridge the gap between our innovative steel connection solutions and the BIM software that is increasingly becoming the industry standard.

The highlight of this partnership is the development of a plugin tool within Tekla Warehouse. This tool allows design and engineering professionals to access Lindapter's Hollo-Bolt directly within the Tekla software, simplifying the incorporation of Lindapter connections into BIM models.

How Does the Plugin Tool Help?

The plugin tool is designed for professionals working on steel structures, enabling them to easily access Lindapter's Hollo-Bolt and select suitable connections for their projects. This streamlined approach significantly accelerates the design process, saving time and promoting accuracy in connection selection. It ensures that the connections adhere to design specifications, which is crucial for the overall success of construction projects.

It was a rewarding experience as we saw the tool come to life and knew it would greatly benefit our customers.
