BIM solutions
for Civil Engineering

ALLPLAN develops solutions for engineers in the field of civil engineering for efficient modeling, reinforcement and detailing of concrete structures with complex geometry. Products also cover the areas of interdisciplinary collaboration.

Civil engineering software

Getting heavy civil projects efficiently under control

Infrastructure projects represent a special challenge due to their size, complexity and the involvement of multiple teams. Engineers working in this field must plan complex designs across buildings, infrastructure and bridges and heavy civil projects efficiently with accurate workflows and high model quality. ALLPLAN offers the ideal software solutions for these tasks.

> Fast and efficient modeling, reinforcement and detailing of concrete structures
> Easily define longitudinal and transverse sections
> Open BIM platform for efficient collaboration across all disciplines

The open BIM solution for civil engineers

Integrated, digital workflows are the key to overcoming the challenges in the construction industry. With open, flexible software tools, interdisciplinary cooperation with project partners reaches a new level. Change processes are fundamentally simplified through flexible working with models and drawings. The solution from ALLPLAN enables...

  • Integrated working in digital teams
  • Design in 2D or 3D according to your needs
  • Time savings and increased design quality


"We can only complete complex construction projects on schedule and on budget by using a professional, reliable software package. The Nepalese planners on site were also highly impressed by the sophi-sticated reinforcement program and the intuitive user interface."

Klaus Klafke, Project Manager at DYWIDAG International GmbH

Aare Bridge

"With Allplan’s approach to 3D models, we were able to guarantee the correctness of the geometry for formwork, reinforcement and pre-tensioning and construct all components neatly."

Versamertobel Bridge

"Allplan was particularly useful for the 3D depiction of the design of the foundations in steeply sloping ground, as well as for the complex geometrical details and for eliminating reinforcement collisions."

Advantages of Allplan Engineering

BIM-aided design

Allplan enables you to build virtually first then in reality, indicating any errors and conflicts early even during the design phase, avoiding delays in construction.

Modeling without limits

The powerful Parasolid modeling kernel from Siemens gives you greater freedom when creating 3D models while also increasing precision and performance.

Reinforcement at the highest level

An integrated 3D model, complete with reinforcement, fixtures, and if necessary tendons, provides the highest possible design reliability and clarity.

The Queensferry Crossing

The engineers from Leonhardt, Andrä und Partner (LAP) who designed and reinforced one of the largest infrastructure projects in Northern Europe, The Queensferry Crossing, were able to plan all of the reinforcement in 3D resulting in zero errors.

"With its 3D reinforcement module, Allplan provided us with excellent support in the construction design so that precise collision-free reinforcement detailing could be provided at the building site while meeting all delivery deadlines." - Andreas Hartung, head of the reinforcement team for the pylons as a subcontractor for LAP-Consult/Germany

The Gotthard Base Tunnel

Rebar detailing done in 3D can help detailers and fabricators avoid common site issues such as congestion with other reinforcing, and interference with other trades. The Gotthard Base Tunnel, the longest rail tunnel in the world, posed logistical complexities due to the scale of the project. An engineering consortium consisting of Gähler und Partner AG, Gruner AG, Rothpletz, Lienhard + Cie AG, and CES Bauingenieur AG was formed and for planning and construction purposes they divided the Gotthard Base Tunnel into several sections, and construction work on the different sections was coordinated and carried out simultaneously to save time and money.

“The 3D model was very useful to us where two adits meet at both tunnel tubes. The resulting spatial intersections of the various structures were ideally presented and edited in the 3D visualization. But the 3D system also gave us the assurance that the drawn reinforcement would really fit when developing the reinforcement plans.” Raphael Wick, project manager of the engineering consortium GBT Nord and representative of Gähler und Partner.
