A critical aspect of building information modeling (BIM) in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry is the technical know-how. While it is paramount that builders keep upgrading their knowledge base, the trend shows that the stakeholders refrain from doing so, assuming that they already know enough. As such, carrying out a successful construction project demands a BIM backed not only by the right set of tools but also in-depth knowledge of the technological tools. Understanding this fact, Malaysia-based Prota Software is turning the corner for builders by helping them establish an effective BIM process. Thus, thousands of engineers, CAD technicians, and project innovators worldwide choose Prota’s technology solutions for their steel/concrete building design, detailing, and structural BIM collaboration.
At its core, Prota provides a sophisticated and flexible structural design engine allowing its clients to optimize the entire building from the roof to the foundations. All the detailed code-based checks are performed and documented to chosen code of practice. A growing range of international and seismic codes of practice are supported, including US, European and British Standards. Among the many services Prota provides, Computer- Aided Design (CAD) is the most sought after by clients in the BIM landscape. For instance, when working on large projects, a combination of CAD and BIM is imperative to achieve the best results. To ensure this, Prota utilizes advanced software such as LinkCAD to get the best of both CAD and BIM.
“This exceptional capability clearly establishes Prota as the leading innovator in providing comprehensive, integrated building design to structural engineers in the global market,” adds Joseph Kubin, Prota Group’s CEO.
To remain at the forefront of engineering excellence, Prota actively engages in research and development and has published more than 100 technical papers in various leading engineering publications and conferences globally over the past ten years – especially in seismic design, retrofitting technologies, and base isolation. Additionally, Prota’s responsive technical support team and it’s brand new platform Prota Help Center is available to help its clients get the most out of Prota’s solutions. Hands-on training courses to learn Prota’s technology solutions are also offered in fully-equipped Prota Training Centers worldwide.
Prota has a passion for engineering excellence and making the world a better place. Prota Group actively engages in technical research, presents papers to numerous conferences and publications worldwide, and contributes to drafting codes of practice to share its extensive knowledge, especially in earthquake design. Moreover, Prota Engineering has completed projects in more than 30 countries worldwide, focusing on large commercial and infrastructure projects, including airports and metro lines. The company actively uses BIM technology to deliver conventional and design-build projects where optimizing design and practical construction methodologies is critical to success. All in all, Prota’s experience with delivering projects worldwide coupled with close collaboration with users and industry experts means that the company genuinely understands structural design.
