LGS Portal Frame Engineering & Quotation
A user friendly software package jointly developed with Design Automation Systems Ltd and ourselves.
Generates wind load from postcodes
Users can add openings, edit sizes, select profiles to be used and generally specify
Provides calculations to both British Standards (BS 5950-5) AND Euro Codes (EN1991-1-3)
The Engineering element uses Tedds to check the applied loads and member capacities, including the connections. These can be outputed as a pdf for ease of sharing, and included with your quotation if desired or saved for issue when the project is won.
From this, and user entered door / window openings sizes Tekla Structures is used to develop the model from which can be produced manufacturing drawings and cnc data as well as powering the quotation spreadhseet.
The quotation spreadsheet lists the components, amounts and allows you to set prices per component and then the total project price. As it's Excel it's easy for users to feed this into their own spreadsheets or other systems if required. Users can set own company name, logo's, etc.
The program produces a full quotation, model and calculations in around five minutes.
Users tell us,
"It used to take a day to produce the quotations, and they didn't look this good!"
Calculations are produced in Tedds and output as pdf
