3D Modeling – SiteOps Software

SITEOPSSITEOPS® is conceptual site design software that allows civil engineers, architects, landscape architects and land developers to evaluate more information in the early stages of a project, design more efficiently and minimize site development costs.

Unmatched Speed – The patented generative design capabilities in SITEOPS can solve incredibly complex engineering feats, comparing millions of layout, grading and piping combinations for a site within hours. Revisions are easy: adjust a building’s location and watch as the software automatically redraws parking, driveways, islands, grading, storm water piping and more.

Cost Optimization – SITEOPS with grading and piping provides incredible time and cost savings while reducing project risk for site planning and land design. It identifies improved layout solutions and grading savings on sites from a single-acre retail parcel up to larger projects such as distribution centers, shopping centers, schools, industrial projects and mixed use projects.

The Power of “What If?” – SITEOPS with grading and piping gives engineers the ability to produce conceptual site designs faster, and to be able to present more options to land developers. The ability to give your client more than your competitor offers is a powerful edge in a tough economy.

Technology – SITEOPS is patented, revolutionary technology for land development, combining evolutionary computation, cloud computing, generative design and operations research. SITEOPS optimization uses an array of powerful servers, capable of handling highly complex algorithmic functions to consider thousands to millions of combinations of layout, grading and piping options for a site.

Ease of Use – All SITEOPS modules are fully integrated, eliminating the need for some third-party software. And, all SITEOPS products are CAD agnostic, allowing for easy output importation into many other CAD programs via DWG and LandXML formats. These applications are used standalone and are not an add-on to a specific CAD program.

While SITEOPS® may be designed for civil engineers, architects and landscape architects, it offers numerous benefits for land developers. Through evolutionary computing, SITEOPS provides detailed budgets and 3D modeling during the conceptual phase – a crucial piece in the land development process.

SITEOPS equips land developers with the capability to rapidly produce proto-type site plans and obtain multiple site designs within hours, rather than the days or weeks required by previous methods. The software also allows for quick visualization of sites via its conceptual 3D modeling.

SITEOPS users can now import site layouts with parking lots, driveways, islands, curbs, parking lines and building pads directly into Trimble SketchUp by simply clicking a button in SITEOPS. Harnessing both the power of SITEOPS and the ease of use of Trimble SketchUp, users can quickly generate budgets with realistic 3D renderings. The software also allows for a quick visualization of proposed grading plans, including Geotech layers, as well as the automatic draping of underlay images to proposed surfaces.

Trimble Connected MachineThe Trimble Connected Machine solution helps Mass Excavation manage their assets and see what machines are doing. Machines can collect as-built measurement data for office delivery, and receive GNSS corrections using the Internet. A 3D design created in the office can be sent to the machine operator for faster, more precise grading and earthmoving. Additionally, the machine can be used for volume measurements, so expensive measurements by grade checkers occur less frequently. Drive time and rework are also minimized, as both the office and machines in the field are kept up-to-date with the latest information.

Mass Excavation can move 12 hours worth of dirt in an 8 hour day with Trimble, the company that invented grade control.
