The merger of Frilo Software GmbH and DC-Software Doster & Christmann GmbH with the Allplan Group has been legally completed since July 1, 2024. By joining forces, ALLPLAN is expanding its range of structural engineering solutions to include structural analysis and foundation engineering, thus creating an end-to-end workflow from conceptual design, structural analysis and design, through detailed design, prefabrication and construction. This merger marks an important step in the development of integrated design-to-build solutions for architectural through structural analysis and design to structural detailing and prefabrication.

"We are very pleased about the merger with Frilo and DC-Software. This step enables us to expand our product portfolio and offer our customers even more comprehensive solutions for their daily challenges. Projects can thus be implemented more productively, with higher quality and more eco-consciously. Together, we can continue to drive digitalization in the construction industry and provide innovative workflows," says Dr. Detlef Schneider, CEO of Allplan.

The integration of the three companies creates a unique portfolio of software solutions that covers the entire construction process from design to execution: Allplan provides a BIM platform for the AEC industry that covers an entire project workflow from initial concept through detailed design and interdisciplinary planning to fabrication and construction. Frilo offers software solutions for component design and supports structural engineers in calculating the load-bearing capacity and stability of building structures made of reinforced concrete, steel, timber and masonry. DC-Software is a provider of solutions for foundation engineering that support geotechnical engineers in calculating the stability of foundation and retaining structures as well as in their planning, design and dimensioning.

The merger is also reflected in the external image. Since July 1, 2024, there have additionally been new BY ALLPLAN logos.

The official merger of Scia, the world's leading provider of structural analysis and design software, is expected to be completed in early 2025.
