Product News 



Civil Designer's water module allows you to deliver the lowest total cost in relation to water utility. The program's intuitive application can establish water demands accurately and efficiently. In residential areas, demands can be calculated according to stand areas, while reticulation pipelines are fairly evenly distributed along the area. Other features include the importing of pipes from multiple CAD layers. For each layer it is possible to specify the pipe material, class, nominal and internal diameter. The program also includes fully editable pipe and pump catalogues and supports up to eight pumps in each pump station.

"The design of the sewer systems for Lake Michelle, being so close to the water body was very challenging. Civil Designer was instrumental in helping us complete the preliminary designs, feasibility studies and DTM, extending into the final designs for the roads, services and pond structures."
