The Dirt.Simple Express - Fall 2020
AGTEK has released a new Gradework integrated Underground module that will takeoff pipe, laterals, structures and fittings with ease. Calculate bedding, cover, pipe displacement, spoil and backfill quantities. Break your job into phases of construction with specific classes for sewer, storm, water and other underground utilities. Calculate excavation volumes by depth brackets and add strata layers to ensure accurate bidding quantities. Utilize the power of drone imagery to validate pre-bid site conditions and measure production progress during construction. Synchronize the data to mobile apps putting actionable information in the foreman's hand.
AGTEK will soon be adding a new modeling utility aimed at stringless curb and gutter machines. Create your surface model using the current tools already available in Gradework. Import the CAD file containaing the curb lines. Quickly conform the lines to the surface or add elevations manually. Send the Stringless Alignments to Highway mode to verify the alignments. Export the alignments to an XML file that can be loaded into your automatic curb and gutter machine. Click here to view a short video on the procedure.

Many AGTEK customers have been with us since we invented digital earthwork takeoff in the ‘80s and have seasoned AGTEK vets ready to help those just learning the software. But today, many of our customers are working from their home offices making it impossible to lean over to a coworker to ask a quick question.
