Oliver Glockner, Head of Application Software Product Management at Hilti said, “We see that connections and anchoring, as well as workflows, are getting more and more complex. The most successful structural engineers in the future will be the ones that apply the latest analysis technology to help improve their speed, accuracy, and workflow processes.”
Nick Heinlen, Project Engineer at Dunaway, said "We’re really excited about the concrete over metal deck module because that usually has to be done by hand. Now, with PROFIS Engineering Suite we can now do it more accurately.”
Valerie Baehr, Senior Project Manager at PMA Engineering, said, "In Hilti’s hands, we have high expectations that we can accomplish more with PROFIS Engineering Suite’s anchoring into concrete on deck module and anticipate that the software will help us solve complex anchor design challenges."
