Example of a geological profile generated with HoleBaseSI and the Civil3d Extension

A good way to begin building a business case for investing in new software and systems is to evaluate the time and cost in carrying out a typical task, such as producing site plans and geological profiles. Byrne Looby Partners have done just this and reaped significant benefits from using HoleBASE SI and the AutoCAD Civil 3D extension on The Irish Water projects.

As Andy Wilkins says, ‘Everything we do now goes into HoleBASE SI and the Civil 3D extension as it is saving us and our clients a huge amount of time and money. Just by speeding up the generation of geological profiles, we are saving about a week on moderate sized projects. If we are also doing earthworks design we can save another week or two, and if you also add inroad alignments and earthworks quantities, we're saving at least one to two additional weeks as this information literally falls out of the Civil 3D extension. We literally haven't drawn geological profiles for years because we've been using Keynetix software and the Civil 3D extension. It is clear to us that we (and our clients) are saving a lot of time and money.’

Keynetix has developed a Geotechnical CAD Cost Calculator to help companies review their own projects and to quickly work out the costs and potential savings that could be made and to evaluate if there is a business case to change. The calculator can show whether this a good short or medium term investment and of course indicates where process efficiencies can be made.
