Acquisition of Mumbai-based software developer will help build presence in India, South East Asia, and the Middle East
Bentley Systems has acquired Mumbai-based structural software developer S-Cube Futuretech. The acquisition will specifically help Bentley better support structural concrete building engineers and designers in India, South East Asia, and the Middle East.
S-Cube Futuretech’s applications, which include RCDC, RCDC FE, RCDC Plan, and Steel Autodrafter, cover structural concrete analysis, design and documentation. Automated concrete documentation is localised to regional requirements. Bentley says the tools are complementary to its current structural analysis, steel design, and BIM applications, STAAD, RAM, and AECOsim Building Designer.
“More than two billion people will fill the world’s cities over the next 30 years. This growth will continue to be concentrated in the developing markets of Asia, particularly India, China, and South East Asian countries. Efficient, automated, concrete design and detailing tools will be instrumental to every nation’s ability to address this demand,” said Raoul Karp, Bentley’s vice president of design engineering analysis.
Since 2014, Bentley Systems and S-Cube have collaborated to develop fully integrated concrete design and analysis applications.
“We are excited to be joining with S-Cube’s expert team whose proven technology provides interactive and automated concrete design and drawing capabilities to our STAAD, RAM, and AECOsim Building Designer users. S-Cube brings a wealth of experience in providing concrete design and drawing automation for the India, Middle East, and Southeast Asia markets,” said Santanu Das, senior vice president of design engineering for Bentley.
