Our mission

The mission behind all developments of Consteel is the overall reform of the way of structural design in three different aspects. These aspects encompass design methodology, software technology, and user community.

Methodology

We continuously research and implement the most modern ways of steel design based on high-level, integrated numerical analysis. We are also seriously dealing with design issues outside of the standard methods in order to offer practical solutions for the engineers in these complex fields as well.

Technology

We build a highly automated calculation system focusing on modularity and flexibility. With the help of it as an engineer to shortcut their design process, so they can focus on planning great buildings. Seeing the changes in the software and hardware use in different engineering fields, we are committed to reconstructing the outdated workflow of structural engineering, with the support of the newest on-premise and cloud solutions.

Community

We want to support a new generation of user communities where the governing working rules are collaboration and knowledge sharing. Our dream is to connect demands and solutions, users and developers, models and calculations coming wherever from the world to help a really efficient design workflow utilizing the power of the whole engineering community.
