Tecbeam Design Software

Tecbeam Australasia is pleased to announce that Australia’s premier independent structural timber design software now includes TECBEAM Joists.

HR QuickDesign is an Australian owned and developed engineering design program produced by HR Design Group Pty Ltd. The result of 10 years development, the software is AS1684.1 compliant but also utilises full engineering principles in accordance with the loading and timber codes.

“The incorporation process has taken time as the many unique design features of TECBEAM needed to be written into the program.” Said Stephen Hunt the software developer of HR QuickDesign.

HR QuickDesign is an advanced design tool that includes a load path system which gives the designer new control over accuracy in member design and specification. It offers a range of design settings and applications and produces full reports on the members designed.

HR QuickDesign incorporates a wide variety of structural building products and is simple to use, which makes it the ideal design tool for quick, effective design solutions. The following link will take you to the download page. A free 30 day trial is available and the full program is very reasonably priced to encourage broad access to this superb design tool:
