In this master thesis, a methodology for demonstrating both the traditional and the digitalization of reinforcement production’s process for a structural system in an apartment building has been investigated. The purpose of this thesis is the workflow of reinforcementsprocess from the model to assembly on-site. AutoCAD as the traditional and Tekla/Revit as the digital with more focus on the reinforcement processes. Reinforcement in the structure is performed in both AutoCAD and Tekla. The ETABS have been used to analyse sections andto get out the quantities and volumes of reinforcements through this project. The first beam on gird 1 on the 1st floor has been selected and explained in detail in both the AutoCAD and Tekla programs in order to reflect on the theory and in addition to find the differences between practice. ETABS has taken into account the entire building. The results of thisthesis show that the digitalization of reinforcement process in Tekla is much more efficient compared to the traditional method in AutoCAD. The time spent drawing the beams in grid1 with reinforcement on AutoCAD requires almost the same amount of time to model theentire structure of the Tekla which will contain all the necessary drawings. It is important to note that when using the digital model, there will be no need to print as many sheets as you do with the traditional. Which means it will be more sustainable. Based on an overall assessment, digitalization of reinforcement process is preferred with regard to environmental considerations, time, cost and etc. Construction sectors can achieve higher sustainability by implementing measures to reduce GWP, for example by replacing the traditional method with the digitalization of reinforcement method.
