One Central Model

Build one model. ProtaStructure enables you to model simple or complex concrete and steel buildings with speed and ease.

True Structural BIM Modeling

Use physical objects including trusses, beams and slabs to create and visualize models quickly and efficiently.

Leading BIM Integration

Developed with BIM in mind seamlessly communicate and refine models with other leading BIM systems including Autodesk Revit, Tekla Structures, ArchiCAD and latest data formats including IFC’s.

Automated Loading

Save time with automatic loading including yield line, finite element, wind and seismic loading coupled with automated load combination generation to your chosen code of practice.

Advanced Analysis

Take advantage of features including Finite Elements, Rigid Zones, Staged Construction, Seismic, static and non-linear approaches to solve both simple and complex projects.

Automated Design

Fully automated design of all steel, concrete, and foundations elements, to range of international codes including British, European, US and Seismic Standards.

Optimised for Economy

Use interactive features including auto grouping, iterative transformed section design, and merged core walls to optimise building design economy. Quickly assess a range of design alternatives to establish the most cost-effective solution for your clients.

Advanced Seismic Analysis and Design

ProtaStructure delivers advanced Seismic Analysis and Design technology allowing engineers to confidently deliver projects to demanding earthquake code regulations. See how automated checks for irregularities, capacity design and building rehabilitation can save you hours of design time.

Seismic Assessment

Use advanced features including pushover analysis to assess and rehabilitate existing structures.

Manage Changes

Easily deal with inevitable project changes and quickly check and update your design where required.

Seamless Documentation

Clear, concise documentation of all your design and seamless high-quality drawing production using included ProtaDetails and ProtaSteel.

BIM Collaboration is key

Save valuable time by coordinating projects early on with other project stakeholders including architects and owners. Synchronize models with other leading BIM platforms including Revit and ArchiCAD.
