Like a skilled carpenter needing quality tools to produce a quality product, the professional seeks out the best technologies to augment their work products. Bamforth primarily utilizes Leica surveying equipment, including robotic Total Stations with SurvCE software. We collect survey-grade GIS data using the Leica ZENO and the latest version of ArcGIS. Our technicians produce drawings using the latest version of AutoCAD Civil 3D to model existing and proposed surfaces and utilities; these are coordinated with BIM/RVIT. We use numerous software products to assist with our design analysis such as KYPipe, WaterGems, WaterCAD HydraFlow, EPA SWMM, and PCASE. Bamforth has in-house capabilities to provide specifications in SpecsIntact, MasterWorks, and Masterspec formats; the ability to create .pdf files; cost estimates in the Means Cost Works, Success, and Excel format; and drawings in formats ranging from R-14 to the latest AutoCAD version. Our staff manages projects using Gantt chart software.
