Many businesses are seeking a risk-free way to transition to a compatible civil design solution.

What if there was a Civil Design Package that:

Operates in a lean and low-cost DWG-based CAD platform
Offers highly automated design tools
Provides subscription or perpetual licensing – single user or network

Civil Site Design Features

that improve design and delivery

Surfaces From Point Files, Point Clouds and Satellite Data

Civil Site Design offers all of the standard tools for creating surfaces from 3D faces, 3D points, contours and point files. You can easily configure the outputs to your standards with the COGO Points.

Civil Site Design also supports point clouds directly with intelligent filtering. You can use the ground surface for design and visualize your design with the point cloud overlay.

The s​atellite to surface feature will geo-reference your drawing and will use Google elevation data as well as imagery from multiple sources to generate a surface and overlay the image.

Create Alignments from Polylines

With Civil Site Design alignments are created from polylines either individually or automatically from all polylines on a specified layer.

Once created, you have full control of the alignment properties, display characteristics and documentation.


Templates provide an intuitive way to define your road, curb, sidewalks, pond elements and related grading strings.

Civil Site Design provides a number of examples that can be easily configured to conform to your standards.

Automated Road Network Design

Once your alignments have been created, you can apply a template and generate the design for an entire subdivision with a single mouse click. You can also create all of your curb returns with a single mouse click saving you hours of time.

This time saving process creates an initial vertical design for each road, applies your default template and allows you to view plan, profile and cross-sections simultaneously. All are tied together so changing the vertical design of one road updates all of the connected profiles.

Interactive, Intuitive Design Tools

The interactive design tools allow you to simultaneously access multiple windows of your design. You can open multiple profile views including curb returns and observe changes as a profile is updated. Same with cross-section views.

The model viewer tool allows you to see the changes rendered in real time providing an intuitive perspective that helps experienced designers and greatly increases the productivity of new designers.

Real Time Interactive Visualization

The unique Model Viewer not only assists your design process with real time rendering and visualization, it has a number of powerful analysis tools including line of sight analysis and reporting, automated line marking which can be exported to your CAD drawing,

For those who want to render a design for visualization, you can extrude buildings, insert objects like street lights and vehicles and much more.

Cul-de-Sac, Parking Bay and Roundabout Tools

Another  productivity feature in Civil Site Design is the interactive cul-de-sac and roundabout network strings. These intuitive, form driven tools guide designers through the entire design process.

Experienced designers can take full control of the design process making manual edits and controlling the design with their own alignments.

Grading Tools

Simply using polylines and templates, the grading tools are great for modelling anything from basins, retaining walls, drains, and much more.

The Vertical Grading Editor or Grid View can be used to manage the vertical design, whilst the horizontal geometry can be simply grip edited with real time updates in the drawing & model viewer.

Plan/Profile and Cross Section Generation

With BricsCAD, Civil Site Design will generate your profiles, plan profile sheets and cross-sections for you with a spectrum of label styles that can be modified to meet your drafting standards.

Surface Pasting & Exchange

Combine different surfaces created within projects easily with Surface Pasting.

Working with BricsCAD BIM, Civil Site Design can exchange surfaces to and from BricsCAD.

Pipe Design

The pipe design module allows you to easily layout your design with simple polylines, will assign pipes and structures and will generate your network automatically,

The CSD pipe designer, provides a powerful interface that displays pipes in relationship to the ground surface.  Pipes are designed automatically based on minimum slope and design flows. Obstructions from other utilities are displayed and color coated based on minimum clearances.

Incoming pipes are also displayed and will control the manhole  invert where appropriate.
