BeamChek was first available to
the design community in 1994. We currently have thousands
professional users in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada.
We created BeamChek...
because we were frustrated by "difficult to use" structural design software written by engineers for engineers. Our goal was to create and continue to develop software that can quickly solve basic, everyday beam calculations (which is about 90% of the design work), present the calculations in a coherent, straight forward print-out, and sell for a reasonable price. We are aware that BeamChek doesn't do everything that you'll find in the $400 to $1000+ software programs, but we are continuing to add features.
Today, BeamChek is the preferred design tool of architects, engineers, designers, builders, home inspectors and lumber specifiers. They're located nationwide. Many building officials use BeamChek as a plan check tool and dozens of universities and community colleges use it for design instruction.
We’ve been told many times that BeamChek is replacing a competitors software that often costs three times as much as ours.
Why does BeamChek
software cost so much less?
