Modern Interface with Fluid User Experience

ProtaStructure welcomes you with a modern user interface specifically tailored for efficiency.

Precise and Accurate Modelling and Loading

With is focus on structural BIM modelling, ProtaStructure allows physical RC, Steel and Composite structural members to be quickly and intuitively defined in one central model. Load creation is highly automated from distribution of slab loading to frames to establishing seismic and wind loadings together with design combinations at a click.

Leading BIM Collaboration and Interoperability

Open BIM collaboration and sharing knowledge is a core principal at Prota. It helped us deliver some of the world’s most challenging infrastructure and transportation projects. ProtaBIM reinforces Prota’s standing as a leading provider of advanced BIM technology with new bi-directional links with the latest versions of Revit, IFC, DXF and other recognized BIM and Analysis formats. Models can be synchronized and design changes tracked greatly enhancing your project coordination and workflow.

Advanced Analysis Features

Prota provides focused analytic approaches important for building design, from basic static, dynamic and finite-elements analysis to advanced considerations including nonlinear static pushover, time-history, construction stage and P-Delta analyses, Prota has you covered.

 

Code-Based Design

Prota’s experience with delivering projects around the world coupled with close collaboration with users and industry experts means we understand structural design. At its core, ProtaStructure provides a sophisticated and flexible structural design engine allowing you to optimize your entire building from the roof to the foundations. All the detailed code-based checks are performed and documented to your chosen code of practice. A growing range of international and seismic codes of practice are supported including US, European and British Standards.

Automated RC Detailing Capabilities

As practicing engineers, we also understand that time is money and clear, accurate, fast drawing production is essential to any successful project. ProtaDetails is a revolutionary drawing management system for instantly creating and organizing all your reinforced concrete detail drawings with a single click. Intuitive drafting and editing commands allow you to fine tune your output. Intelligent design macros provide design and detailing of other project components from retaining walls to piling systems.

Steel Connection Design and Detailing for Professionals

Now-a-days clients want practical, efficient steel details to drive on-time project delivery and cost control. ProtaSteel is the all-in-one steel detailing solution for engineers and drafting professionals. Our unique IntelliConnect automates connection design with a focus on constructability. Full documentation including connection detailing, calculations, and general steel arrangement and assembly drawings is highly automated. Full cutting lists provide insight into efficient procurement and cost control.
