Concrete Series

Design-driven reinforcement calculation for concrete beams, columns or footings


GRAITEC Advance BIM Designers – Concrete Series is an innovative series of applications for rebar detailing and modeling using engineering BIM data.

GRAITEC BIM Designers Concrete Series


Advance BIM Designers is a BIM Solution for improving structural project management. It helps users to createdesigndocumenttrack and control structural members of a BIM project whilst also working in multiple BIM environments.


The Concrete Series works to various international standards to automate the design and creation of 3D rebar cages and produce related documentation including design reports, drawings and schedules, for common concrete Column, Beam and Footing elements.


  • Efficiency and productivity improved with specific functions per job
  • A more intelligent and productive BIM workflow
  • BIM workflow streamlined between MEP and structure
  • More detailed assumptions allowing fine tuned design
  • Collaboration improved with other actors of the project thanks to enhancements of reports and RC drawings

BIM Integration

Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers are compatible and integrated with Autodesk® Revit® 2017 and 2018, GRAITEC Advance Design, GRAITEC OMD, and are also available as a standalone solution. They introduce highly advanced, flexible and productive workflows, coupled with a high-degree of automation when compared to traditional structural processes.

The Concrete Series of BIM Designers is now proposed in 2 professional packages:

  • Advance BIM Designers - Concrete Series - Rebar Detailing
  • Advance BIM Designers - Concrete Series - Rebar Design & Detailing

Rebar Detailing

  • Quickly create parametric 3D rebar cages
  • Automates the creation of rebar views, 2D rebar details and lists
  • Tools for easily editing rebar and adding bending schedules
  • Fully customizable using Revit templates

Rebar Design & Detailing

Everything in the detailing package  +

  • Design rebar cages according to Eurocodes and North American codes
  • Groups of elements to design and produce 3D rebar cages on a group in one click!
  • Produce Design reports and graphical results

Design workflow optimized

The ability to calculate a group of elements simultaneously is possible in BIM Designers.

The advantages are :

  • The possibility to assign the same parameters for all grouped elements
  • Calculation of the theoretical reinforcement envelope for a group
  • Identical 3D rebar cages for all grouped elements
  • Rebar schedules take into account all elements in the group

The Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers seamlessly integrate with Autodesk®Revit®, Advance Design, GRAITEC OMD, and even operate as standalone platforms, offering a practical solution that simplifies the workflow between structural engineers and technicians;

The Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers can be used at any stage of the process to support multiple workflows, from completely isolated processes to fully connected BIM. For example, the reinforcement generator can interrogate the FEM results to automatically calculate rebar or can be used on its own to simply generate rebar cages based on user input. Equally, the user can apply estimated forces and use the Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers to produce reinforcement cages for the entire project's columns, beams and footings - very powerful for estimating as reinforcement can be created for an entire project in minutes.

Construction engineers often deal with large project sites, where they need to calculate and reinforce hundreds of structural elements. In these situations, in order to streamline and simplify the process for the site engineer and at the same time reduce the management overhead of material bar schedules, elements are built with the same section properties and rebar quantities as part of a group.

A single reinforcement cage type is generated and placed in the formwork. This makes it possible to deal with fewer reinforcement bar lengths and barshapes. In the design process, this result can be achieved using the Design Group concept in the Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers whilst working inside Autodesk Revit or when using the Graitec Advance Design platform.

Fully detailed customizable design reports, including detailed calculation formulas with references to the code for rapid validation, can be produced from any platform in a single click.

Country specific, user configurable templates enable fully dimensioned and annotated drawing views and sections to be automatically produced, complete with bar schedule and the option to also create a drawing sheet.

Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers have been localized for Europe, Canada and North-America.

Display graphical results for the performed verifications, such as stability checks, interaction curves or diagrams, for a better overview of the status of the designed element.
