RebarCAD Software Solution

Software such as RebarCAD from CADS India can help Real-estate / Property Developers achieve significant material and time savings on their projects, which in turn can help ensure developments are cost-effective and completed on schedule. Developers can benefit from suppliers who are able to minimise errors, reduce rebar consumption and prepare rebar quantities several times quicker than manual methods.

Developers can also benefit from Contractors who have better control over the processing of reinforcement and Consultants who have more input into material quantities. This all adds up to better accountability regardless of who produces the drawings and BBS.

Rebar Fabricators can take advantage of Optimal Cut suggestions to plan the cut and bending of steel and fully utilise stock lengths. Accurate bend deduction calculations that comply with IS-2502 can help save steel in the very beginning of fabrication. Additionally, time spent checking and double checking drawings and schedules is reduced significantly, whilst edits and revisions are handled quickly and efficiently without large increases to the costs as well. The automatic revision of BBS helps save 100% of the time consumed in preparing manual schedules.

For developers, ultimately savings in time can help increase productivity and enable more projects to be handled by one preferred Contractor. This plethora of data enables them to combine projects, so as to realise even bigger material savings through maintaining control of overall rebar usage and minimising rebar waste.

Mr. K. K. Jagadish (Managing Director of CADS India) commented, "Quicker turnaround of high quality bar bending schedules (BBS) and drawings equals quicker and higher returns for developers! This reduces the financial risk for developers and increases confidence in the ability of the construction industry to deliver high quality projects, to budget and to schedule."

An example of this in action is Sobha Developers, headquartered in Bangalore, who are a renowned name in the industry for luxurious real estate projects, in India and in the Middle East. It began its first landmark project in Chennai with the luxury gated community, Sobha Meritta development, which is spread across 6 acres of greenery, consists of 556 elegantly crafted apartments divided into 5 spacious blocks. Sobha wanted to start servicing the site with BBS for the first time, with the key challenge of ensuring accuracy and frugal consumption of reinforcement steel.

Mr. Rajesh Shirakol, (Sobha Developers Senior Vice President – Structures, Design & Engineering) commented on RebarCAD, "The RebarCAD software has helped us to speed up construction and we were able to achieve a reduction in the wastage of bars. The site has appreciated the BBS to a great extent, as we never did BBS before Sobha Meritta."
