SITEOPS is conceptual land development software for architects, civil engineers, landscape architects and land developers

SITEOPS is conceptual land development software for folks like architects, civil engineers, landscape architects and land developers. After you’ve brought in a site, you can combine building footprints with critical elements like parking, islands and driveways. These elements are parametric, meaning that they re-draw themselves on the fly as you change aspects of your conceptual design. SITEOPS even provides budget tools for estimating the cost of a project.

Want to see what a parking layout might look like if your building were on the other side of the site? As you slide it over, the parking lot automatically reconfigures to maintain the proper number of spaces. Too cool. This short video shows SITEOPS it in action:

Electronic surveying improves accuracy on BIM driven hospital project

Electronic surveying improves accuracy on BIM-driven hospital project.

Electronic surveying improves accuracy on a @McCarthyBuild BIM driven hospital construction project and @SouthlandInd a mechanical contractor combines an electronic surveying tool with a BIM model to make significant productivity gains in a large-scale hospital construction project.

Using electronic surveying and BIM modeling, two-member crews were able to hit as many as 900 data points per deck per day.
