RebarCAD software is used in bridge construction mainly for RCC structural elements like Pile Caps, Columns, Beams & Deck slabs. Preparing BBS at site is a tough task. RebarCAD provides a complete solution as it is developed based on the IS code 2502.This code provides details for minimum hook and bend values which are automatically set in the Software. The cost of Reinforcement in Reinforced concrete structures is normally 15 % to 25% of the cost of the contract value of a project. Hence there is need to control all activities related to Reinforcement steel. RebarCAD IS software provides accurate BBS & Steel Quantities to save considerable time and money. RebarCAD IS software is not only used for the preparation of placing drawing, it also helps to manage the complete rebar solutions at site. Hence, unnecessary rebar storage (SCRAPS) at site is detected and re-utilization is done frequently so that wastage can be minimized.

RebarCAD IS software produces placing drawings for the whole project and ensures there is no delay in the Project completion. Revisions are very easy in RebarCAD IS and BBS can be generated very quickly (100% time reduction).
Sustainability in infrastructure is no longer an ambitious vision but has now become a necessity. Detailed engineering does not only help to have better control over every element that is cast or every bar that is bent, but also helps ensure that the entire construction is exactly the way it was designed to be. This helps enforce the structural integrity and hence gives more meaning to the design calculations that have been done by the structural engineer. Of course it has its monetary benefits as well. A controlled rebar engineering process also means a tab on the material consumption.
Our detailed engineering product RebarCAD is quite unique in the sense that it is the only available software that can act as a Rebar Detailed Engineering and Information processing solution at the same time. This means that, it can not only help in the detailed engineering phase, but also help in rebar processing and handling. What is more, it is the only software that takes into consideration the problems of optimal fabrication at the point of engineering, eliminating the hazards of a project that are flabby before going into execution.
With our experience in the rebar information processing activities in the past 4 decades in over 4 continents, we understood that the responsibility of rebar engineering lies more with the contracting companies rather than the consulting engineers like elsewhere in the world.
Reinforcement detailed engineering software has always been a consultant's friend. We have been focusing on making the process of preparation of drawings easy. With RebarCAD V 9.12, we are extending the pleasure of using our software to Contractors who traditionally have found it difficult to prepare drawings on their own and have relied on drawings from consultants to prepare Bar Bending Schedules. It has become so simple that, even a minimal CAD knowledge is sufficient to detail any type of complicated reinforcement.
