We are proficient in the most recent version of Autocad Civil 3D and are able to create digital terrain models for use on all of HTC’s civil/alignment projects to create grading plans, contract drawings, quantity estimates and cut/fill earthworks balancing. We are also proficient in the use of Autoturn and Vehicle Tracking software to analyse the impacts of all types of vehicle movements within the limits of any specific project.
