How do engineering firm owners use OpenSite? 

What types of projects can I use OpenSite for?

OpenSite has capabilities for all types of land development projects from residential to commercial and industrial. Common features that engineering firm owners will leverage are: 

  • Automated Layout Tools
    Use these early collaboration tools to determine the best design that also meets client and regulatory requirements.
  • Parametric and Optimization Tools
    Reduce tedious manual work so engineers and designers can spend more time designing and less time drafting.
  • Engineering Acumen
    Save time and reduce the risk of bad designs with engineering principles built in the software. Patented generative design capabilities solve incredibly complex engineering feats, comparing millions of layout, grading, and piping combinations for a site within just a few hours.
  • 3D Visualization
    Deliver clients stunning visual images and video quickly, without buying any additional software or needing a graphic artist level employee. Download the product datasheet for a full list of capabilities

How do engineering firm owners benefit from OpenSite?

Whether you are looking to grow your business, sustain your current workload, or improve daily workflows – OpenSite is here for you.

Increase efficiency with your existing staff

OpenSite’s automation, parametric, and optimization tools allow engineers to reduce tedious manual drafting work for more time on design. Reducing design time by 20% allows your team to spend more time on:

  • Designing multiple alternatives
  • Implementing stakeholder feedback
  • Winning new bids with existing and new clients
  • Expanding the company’s portfolio without big change or the need for new hires

Reduce overhead costs with one application.

Most civil site and land development technology require purchasing multiple applications and collections of software. The worst part, they aren’t even tailored to site design and land development. Stop paying for software packages you won’t use. Stop forcing transportation software to work for land development. Stop using broken workflows across applications, too much potential for error! OpenSite provides you with ONE download for two purpose-built land development solutions.

The bonus, OpenSite provides you with geotechnical, drainage, underground utility, and visualization solutions in application. There is no need for a collection of software that your engineers won’t use or like.

It’s also a business tool for financial forecasting.

Land development projects aren’t just about design and engineering. In order to get to that step, you have to win the bid first. Have you ever thought about the time and money you are losing on engineers designing and editing projects before winning the bid?

With OpenSite, engineers can identify site constraints, create multiple solutions, produce visualizations to communicate design intent, with detailed cost estimates in 48 hours. CEOs, owners, and principals; talking project feasibility during the conceptual phase has never been easier or more impressive!

Reduce risk, for your clients and you!

At the end of the day, the best part of OpenSite is risk reduction. Its artificial intelligence removes the potential for manual error that is common in CAD applications. The ROI? Less error prevents risk in the field and to your deadlines, reputation, and longevity of your business.

Remove manual & repeatable error-prone work = happy engineers = happy clients = BUSINESS SECURITY
