Using the Civils 3d design software, Scott Hughes Design are able to carry out detailed earthworks analysis to calculate volumes of material to be removed and brought into site and where possible to optimise the finished floor and external levels to achieve a zero balance.

This becomes very important to clients where construction costs are to be kept to a minimum or where contaminated material will incur additional disposal costs.

Isopachyte contouring and inclusion of borehole data & proposed construction build ups help to provide a greater visual understanding and cost benefit.
