The suite is modular in nature, but its true power lies in the tight integration between analysis, design and detailing programs. Prokon has been improving the lives of structural engineers everywhere for more than two decades.
Prokon Software Consultants was founded in 1989 by structural engineers Karl Eschberger and Jacques Pienaar. At the time most design software ran on mainframe computers. Our founders realised that the PC would revolutionise the market and started development on the Prokon Suite. Their work was extremely well-received and before long most of their colleagues incorporated the solution into their daily work routines.
Prokon is developed and supported by a team of professional engineers and intended for use by structural engineers and technicians. The software provides quick and reliable answers to everyday structural engineering problems. The Prokon suite is modular, yet integrated. Some modules can be used standalone, or in conjunction with others. The suite offers a powerful workflow from structural analysis, steel and concrete design, to detailing.
“Engineering is not a science. Science studies particular events to find general laws. Engineering design makes use of the laws to solve particular practical problems. In this it is more closely related to art or craft.”
