Tekla Structures helps reinforced concrete contractor be more selective on tenders by submitting high quality bids quickly and efficiently
UK reinforced concrete contractor Cidon Construction, says its recent adoption of Tekla Structures has led to a significant uplift in work won, and a halving of estimating costs.
“We are completely accountable to our customers; promises have to be delivered and in order to do that, we have to work smarter and bring efficiencies to all areas of the business,” explains Ciaran Donnelly, MD at Cidon Construction. “The consequences of not performing efficiently are too great as they can result in significant time and cost delays to the project. Adopting Tekla enables us to take a much simpler and leaner approach to our business, ensuring that we are always offering a high quality, dedicated service.
“By using Tekla software, our estimating costs have been halved. We are a lot more selective on tenders as we now have the ability to submit high quality bids quickly and efficiently, resulting in our tenders versus secured work up by a factor of 2.5 from 1 in 10 jobs to 1 in 4,” continues Ciaran. “Ultimately, the software has given us the flexibility and the confidence to offer a highly credible, efficient and competitive service to our customers, which is completely in line with Cidon’s company ethos.”
