Our Customers

"PLANBAR allows for 50% time savings in design and 60% less errors, which leads to a reduction of production time as well as a precise budgeting and control of materials used for production."


Tatiana Laguies, Project Manager, BauMax

"The modelling approach in PLANBAR is unique and can be easily adopted by CAD users. We see a lot of opportunities to increase our productivity, a lot of things can be done better by using PLANBAR, especially during the generation of shop drawings. Overall, PLANBAR is impressive."

Michael Khor, General Manager JEKS Group

"A great tool for creating 3D-models for multiple purposes in projects."

Linda Vikse, Department Manager, Con-Form

"I can say that we can save 52% of the time saving comparison comparing 2D drawings to 3D drawings using PLANBAR Software."


Amelyn De Castro, Design Engineer, Robin Village

"Its intelligence in providing precast solutions meets the company’s objective. Thanks to its reliability and flexibility, last-ditch modification in precast elements is achievable."


Thoo Hoi Hian, Head of design (GIBS)

"PLANBAR has been able to provide a detailing platform that has the software customization capabilities and the support staff necessary to allow for a customized solution to a specialty product-line.."


Bryant A. Zavitz, Tindall Corporation

"With the implementation of TIM as an integration platform, employees have more detailed and helpful information at their disposal. Additionally, we expect an optimization of the internal processes in various areas such as material management, accounting and controlling."


Dipl.-Ing. Marlies Elsäßer-Heitz, CEO, Elsäßer Beton Bauteile

"TIM allows us to perform model-based production planning and provides us with all of the information about products, components and processes at any time."

Karsten Rewitz, CEO, Contiga Tinglev A/S

"We have been working with Precast Software Engineering for a long time. Using PLANBAR, we efficiently create overview drawings, as well as element plans and generate error-free data for production."



"Planbar is an intelligent tool that adapts well for our precast concrete elements. The software is flexible and allows us to tailor the modeling in an efficient manner for multiple purposes. We use 3D-models for quantity data in tendering phases and generating production drawings for our factories and overview plans used at site for ongoing projects. We are very pleased with the software and their Hotline service."

Linda Vikse, Department manager, Con-Form

"We see Precast Software Engineering as a partner who develops customised solutions for our new products and supports us with the implementation in the factory."


Werner Pröll, Franz Oberndorfer GmbH & Co KG, CEO Precast Parts Factories

"With the use of iTrigger and Python Parts functionalities and the associated less necessary clicks in the creation of  shop drawings time savings up to 10% are possible. This time savings in turn can be used meaningfully for drawing precast parts."


Tim Karczewski, Tinglev Elementfabrik GmbH

Showcase project for modern prefabricated construction - The Allianz Stadium in Vienna

The integrated 5D software PLANBAR made a decisive contribution to the tight schedule of just 17 months of construction.

Up to 75% time savings

Technical terms explained understandable – what means …


Industry 4.0, Internet of Things or also Building Internet of Things – every day new trends and innovations emerge. But what do these terms actually mean? What is the benefit of a Common Data Environment (CDE) and what is the meaning of Artificial Intelligence? Which tasks does a BIM Manager have and what is the result of the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)?

Generate your decisive competitive edge with our precastWIKI. We explain technical terms in a fast, simple and understandable way.


The key to your success!

Our aim for integrated planning is the consistency of data and information along the entire process.
From the first cost estimate, to planning, right up to the work and assembly.


Integrated Planning

We stand for automatisms and utmost efficiency with series products, as well as complete flexibility and high-performance functions, in order to plan and produce challenging and complicated precast parts. And this applies to all types of precast parts.
