A Better

Workflow for
Concrete Structures
St ruct ur al Concr et e S oftware

ADAPT-Builder 2017 enables a new workflow using patented tributary load takedown technology
combined with ADAPT’s trusted 3D Finite element solution. Our integrated column and wall design solution uniquely
offers design of vertical elements for Tributary, FE, or enveloped loads. Coupled with the industry’s only single-model
approach to combined global and single-level analysis and design, Builder helps you save time and effort.


• Quick and simple load takedown • Wind and seismic forces • Post-tensioned floor systems
using tributaries • Fully integrated frame action • Mild reinforced floor systems
• Size structural elements • Incorporates effects of • Beams
- Columns post-tensioning • Foundations (mat or isolated)
- Slabs • Same model for gravity and • Columns
- Transfer elements lateral analysis, each with • Walls
- Foundations own stiffness profile
- Post-tensioning with optimizer
- Walls

ADAPT-Builder is specifically designed for the rapid modeling of concrete structures and gives the option of adding
prestressing or post-tensioning to any slab or beam member at any level. Directly import concrete building models
from ETABS, Revit ,® or CAD, or use your Builder model to generate a new Revit Structure model.
