A Better Workflow for Concrete Structures - ADAPT Structural Concrete Software

Builder 2016
 enhances our unique and integrated workflow for building design with the industry's only single-model approach to global lateral and detailed slab design. ADAPT's trusted 3D finite element solution now includes new options for designing slabs for lateral frame action. Features such as integrated column design, a patent-pending tributary load calculator, and multiple solution recall makes it possible to save time and effort with the most powerful approach to concrete buildings available. 

New features & improvements include:

    Integrated Design with Preliminary Sizing, Stability Analysis, and Detailed Design ADAPT-Builder is specifically designed for the rapid modeling of concrete structures and gives the option of adding prestressing or post-tensioning to any slab or beam member at any level. Directly import concrete building models from Revit Structure or CAD, or use your Builder model to generate a new Revit Structure model. Compatible with Revit Structure, and .dwg/.dxf import & export.

    Product availability and licensing: ADAPT-Builder clients with an active maintenance contract as of September 20, 2016 are eligible to receive a free upgrade to this new version, in priority according to Support level (Platinum, Gold, and Maintenance). A separate license is required to carry out detailed column design (and wall design later).
