Civil engineering firm ADL Highways has offices in Bristol and London and is involved in the design and construction of highways and traffic systems. The firm made the decision to change its software package in order to benefit from faster design times and to enhance the quality of its work.
The firm had successfully been using AutoCAD for six years but as its work progressed from small-scale road schees and alterations to the existing highways network, to more detailed and involved schemes such as re-designing roundabouts, it felt that the time had come to upgrade its software.
ADL Highways was on the verge of signing contracts with Bentley MX but after going along to one of the Civil 3D open days held by Cadspec and seeing Civil 3D in action they changed their minds. Opting for Civil 3D was an obvious choice as it sat within AutoCAD, which had been in use within the firm for around six years, making the transition to a new package much easier.
"We now recognise that it will not only help us work much quicker, but also to optimise our designs enabling us to offer clients the best possible solution."
