“After we got the project contract, the only concern the client had was that our use of the InfraWorks project visualizations set the bar too high for other firms bidding on future projects.”
Alan Winter, General Manager, Greater Toronto Area West office, Cole Engineering Group, Ltd.
Cole Engineering was awarded the contract for detailed design of a water distribution project for the Region of Peel. To distinguish its proposal and secure this project, the firm used Civil 3D software to develop its pre-engineering design and used InfraWorks to create project visualizations in the context of the existing neighbourhoods. For example, Cole Engineering could identify trees on private property which may be affected by the project.
