Held in cities such as Ahmedabad, Delhi, Hyderabad and Kolkata, the symposiums were held “to create awareness amongst the top corporates about latest technologies in modern construction practices in the country”, such as Building Information Modelling.
Speaking at the December event held last week was Tekla‘s Technical Manager, Michael Hodgson. In addition to exciting speakers, a wide variety of delegates also attended, such as “structural engineering consultants, structural, precast and rebar fabricators, project owner, real estate developers, general and concrete contractors, erectors, EPC companies, quantity surveyors and estimators” – a varied list most definitely!
