Bentley Systems acquired concrete building design and documentation software company, S-Cube Futuretech.
The buy-out will expand Bentley’s offerings specific to the needs of concrete engineering design and documentation software users in the Middle East, India and South East Asia.
Applications from the India-based firm include RCDC, RCDC FE, RCDC Plan, and Steel Autodrafter, deliver flexible and powerful design and documentation solutions for structural concrete building engineers and designers.
Automated concrete documentation is localised to regional requirements and provides users with compelling value and capabilities.
These complement Bentley’s widely used structural analysis, steel design, and BIM applications, STAAD, RAM, and AECOsim Building Designer.
Sajit Nair, CEO of S-Cube Futuretech said: “As a global leader in the structural analysis and design space, Bentley brings state-of-the-art BIM and structural analysis technology, a strong user-centric ethos, and global market experience that will help scale our solutions to a much broader market.
“We are excited about bringing more functionality and capabilities to more users globally, in a shorter timeframe than we would have been able to otherwise.”
Bentley Systems and S-Cube have collaborated to develop fully integrated concrete design and analysis applications since 2014.
The acquisition brings together the knowledge base of S-Cube and Bentley’s respective teams of experts, representing decades of combined industry experience to provide structural design and analysis technology.
