Software-supported structural design in a network - FRILO presents itself at BAU 2023

Stuttgart, March 22 2023 - FRILO, provider of powerful and user-friendly calculation programs for structural engineering tasks, will be present at BAU 2023 in Munich from April 17 to 22. At the joint stand of the Nemetschek Group, the company presents its software range for structural design and uses the large stage to demonstrate solutions for more efficiency, productivity and sustainability in structural design together with SCIA and DC-Software in the Nemetschek Engineering merger.

Every two years, BAU in Munich becomes the important meeting place for the construction industry. With 250,000 visitors and over 2,000 exhibitors from almost 50 countries, it is considered the world's leading trade fair for the construction industry. And the extensive get-together from April 17 to 22 comes in handy, because the construction industry has to face a change of times. The digital transformation, modern technologies, the shortage of skilled workers, the scarcity of resources and climate change will shape the design, construction and operation of buildings today and tomorrow. The changed framework conditions harbor challenges that planners can meet with greater time and resource efficiency. How can sustainability be improved in the construction and operation of buildings? What can collaborations look like that increase efficiency in the planning of construction projects? And what role does software-supported structural design play in this? Visitors to the joint stand of the Nemetschek Group in Hall C5, Stand 322 will find answers to these questions.

Nemetschek Engineering collaboration increases efficiency

In order to increase productivity and efficiency in engineering offices, SCIA, FRILO and DC-Software have joined forces to form Nemetschek Engineering. The aim of the collaboration is to offer structural designers and civil engineers a comprehensive overall package of structural representation and calculation options. The three established brands therefore work closely together in all areas of the company. In this way, data transfers based on IFC and SAF are to be developed between the diverse solutions and the digitization of civil engineering is to be advanced. Initial interfaces between SCIA Engineer and FRILO already enable more efficient design of foundations and masonry. For the detailed verification in FRILO, all information on materials, load cases and actions as well as boundary conditions already stored in the SCIA Engineer 3D model is transferred. This saves valuable time and reduces sources of error.

FRILO & SCIA demonstrate selected solutions

The joint stand of the Nemetschek Group offers many opportunities to exchange ideas, explore and inform. Among other things, with a coffee bar and a presentation area where the brands present their solutions. For visitors who show interest in software-supported structural design, a visit to stand 322 is recommended at the following times:

In addition, FRILO, SCIA and DC's expert technical staff will be available at two workstations at all times to answer questions and demonstrate the software. In addition, we will inform visitors about the added option of subscribing to the software solutions in the future. Experts from the brands will explain the modalities and benefits of the new licensing models to interested parties.
