Our expertise with Civil 3D 2020 and Infraworks for Site and InfraStructure designs allows us to quickly provide clients with 3d site models. Many surveys now are done with LIDAR and / or Aerial Surveys as a base.  CDS works with the survey team(s) to request Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) or produce DTMs if necessary from validated survey data.   This is the design base for improvements.
We generate site improvements via Civil 3D roadway corridors and use feature lines and grading objects to develop proposed site designs. From here, we generate Earthwork Calculations, Quantity takeoffs, and construction documents for permitting.  Our other service is to provide 3D visuals that are accurate and based upon the Client's design criteria.  We routinely coordinate with Architects to establish base points for incorporating Building designs onto the site.
If desired, CDS can prepare the 3D designs for animations, or for output to 3D printers.
