THE CIVIL DESIGNER ADVANTAGE

  • Design and analyse earthworks, urban roads and highways, surface drainage, wastewater and pressurized potable water models in one application.

  • Integrate into your workflow with advanced IFC BIM, LandXML and 3D DWG support.

  • Handle multi-lane highways with lengths exceeding 200kms and multiple junctions.

  • Automatically generate multiple (500+) dynamically linked final drawings (incl. layout plan, long and cross sections).

  • Easily create 3D digital models of existing civil infrastructure for analysis & construction upgrades.

  • Instantly render a model in 3D within the program for design verification.

  • Handle large DTMs using 255 surfaces with fast import of DTM points and triangulation.

  • Run proximity clash analyses between existing and proposed design services.

  • Calculate quantities for tender & construction.

  • Immediate design productivity upon installation with minimal style customization.

  • Reduce long term costs with flexible perpetual, network & single licensing options.

HOW DOES THE NETWORK LICENSING SAVE ME MONEY?‚Äč

Of the eight modules, the only compulsory module is the Design Centre, platform module. By sharing the design modules according to your current project demands, you benefit from a significant cost saving. You only require additional Design Centre licenses for additional users who can then share the other modules where they are not simultaneously required.

WHAT CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH CIVIL DESIGNER?

Civil Designer’s continued success over the last 28 years is closely associated with the following important factors which set it apart from other infrastructure design tools:

  • Load (from any source) or create a 3D CAD drawing & import associated aerial images

  • Import detailed site survey information (from any source) and generate a DTM

  • Design, analyse, re-design and re-analyse any infrastructure project to produce the most cost effective optimal civil infrastructure design

  • Generate dynamically linked final drawings (including layout plan, long and cross sections) and quantities for tender and construction, faster than any other available application

CIVIL DESIGNER FEATURES

Civil Designer’s continued success over the last 28 years is closely associated with the following important factors which set it apart from other infrastructure design tools:

WHAT CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH CIVIL DESIGNER?

Civil Designer is a comprehensive one stop civil infrastructure design package which incorporates a very powerful CAD platform and eight configurable modules. The software will allow the infrastructure designer to:-

  • Load (from any source) or create a 3D CAD drawing & import associated aerial images

  • Import detailed site survey information (from any source) and generate a DTM

  • Design, analyse, re-design and re-analyse any infrastructure project to produce the most cost effective optimal civil infrastructure design

  • Generate dynamically linked final drawings (including layout plan, long and cross sections) and quantities for tender and construction, faster than any other available application

LICENSING OPTIONS

Civil Designer can be licensed individually or via a shared license pool across a network. Network licenses allow an amount of users equal to the amount of platform (Design Centre) licences available to work simultaneously.

Licensing alternatives include the Sentinel SL (software-based licence) or the Sentinel HL (hardware dongle-based) licence system.

PERPETUAL LICENSES

We offer permanent licenses on all our software. This gives you the following advantages:

  • Predictable cost

  • Non-expiring software

  • Only necessary to upgrade to a later version when you are ready to do so

CIVIL DESIGNER

CIVIL DESIGNER

This platform module contains the graphical and topographical engines. It combines the CAD engine plus an advanced digital terrain modelling (DTM) program that has all the required functionality to complete your design and produce your final drawings.

CIVIL DESIGNER

ROADS

This module is a comprehensive road design program that provides interactive embankment design, intersections and area calculations for urban streets, single/dual carriageway roads, railways, airports, harbours and parking areas.

CIVIL DESIGNER

CAD & RENDERING

In addition to the powerful 3D rendering capabilities that you need for your project visualisation and presentation purposes, the CAD module provides the full drawing functionality contained in AllyCAD Professional for intensive draughting applications. It includes the surveying, structural, mechanical and architectural toolkits which simplify many time-consuming procedures.

CIVIL DESIGNER

SEWER

The Sewer Analysis and Design module is a complete tool for the design of foul water or sewerage networks. It will calculate the invert levels, slopes and diameters of the culverts as well as the design flow, capacity and the flow velocity of each culvert. The program will model a network with house connections consisting of both existing and new culverts.

CIVIL DESIGNER

STORM

Stormwater is a comprehensive tool for the network analysis and design program for runoff events. It will calculate catchment runoff, culvert flows, overflows, and routing and detention storage through user-defined ponds. It also calculates culvert sizes, invert levels and slopes and supports the Illudus, Rational, Greenfields and SWMM runoff models.

CIVIL DESIGNER

WATER

Water is a program for the full analysis and extended time simulation of fluid handling networks.The module includes items such as reservoirs, pressure release chambers, pump stations with multiple pumps, valves and all pipe types that are fully editable and can link to external consumption data tables
