ReWaRD 2.5

ReWaRD 2.5 was released in February 2000 for Windows 98 and XP operating systems. This version allowed extensive customization of most aspect of the program: design standards, layers, wall properties, etc.

Upgrades from version 2.5 to version 2.7 are provided free-of-charge to customers with Software Re-Assurance or for an upgrade charge for those without.

ReWaRD 2.0 was released in 1997 for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 operating systems. Adding support for several UK and international design standards, ReWaRD 2.0 premiered the program's Stockyard/Workbook interface. An unlimited number of construction stages could be studied at the same time.

Upgrades from version 2.0 are no longer available.

ReWaRD 1.x

ReWaRD 1.0 was released in 1992 for the Windows 3.0 operating system. Implementing the requirements of CIRIA 104, ReWaRD 1.0 had a menu-driven user interface with graphical feedback provided via its "Job Window". Results were displayed in separate Earth Pressure and Bending Moment windows. Only one construction stage could be studied at any one time.

Upgrades from version 1.x are no longer available.
