Oberschleißheim, January 21, 2020 ---- The construction software company SOFiSTiK will be hosting the 2020 SOFiSTiK Seminar at the Leonardo Royal Hotel in Munich, Germany on March 27 and 28. This international conference for professionals is recognized as one of the major events for construction engineers in German-speaking countries and will cover topics such as design, analysis, and engineering.

In keeping with this year’s theme Connecting People, structural engineering firms and civil engineers at the event will learn how innovative technologies are shaping the nature of collaboration by bringing people closer together and making projects more successful. This edition of the SOFiSTiK Seminar will embrace a new format. The event has been divided into an Innovation Day on March 27 and an Engineering Day on March 28. Leading innovators will offer insights into the future of the industry on the first day of the event.

Some of the scheduled presentations include the following:

  • Werner Sobek AG, Dr.-Ing. M.Arch Lucio Blandini: The complex shell structure of Kuwait International Airport Terminal 2
  • Royal HaskoningDHV, Kees van Ijselmuiden: Sustainable 3D-Printed FRP Bridge
  • FINLEY Engineering Group, Jindrich Potucek: SOFiSTiK Based BrIM Bridge Design– with complex steel and segmental concrete case studies

The goal of Engineering Day on March 28 is to make it easier to work with SOFiSTiK software for structural engineering and BIM (building information modeling). SOFiSTiK experts will be presenting new workflows across a number of workshops conducted in either German or English. Some of the topics include using BIM for bridges and other constructions, seismic engineering, and design and code checking. Participants can piece together their own individual program according to their interests. The Connecting

People Dinner and get together that follows will give guests an opportunity to connect and share their experiences.

“The SOFiSTiK Seminar has been connecting industry experts from around the world for years now. It’s earned a reputation for the quality of the program. None of that is going to change under the company’s new leadership,” said Frank Deinzer, Chairman of the Executive Board at SOFiSTiK AG. “We want to give participants both theoretical and practical insights. So, we’re going to be presenting some impressive projects our customers have done and running workshops that focus on using our software. It’s a tool that can satisfy the requirements of modern structural engineering as well as innovative BIM workflows.”

Additional information, registration, and the program for the event are available on the event website.
