Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, announced that it has acquired Charlotte, N.C.-based BLUERIDGE Analytics, Inc., provider of SITEOPS –site design optimization "software at your service." SITEOPS uses cloud-based computing techniques to empower site development professionals to move beyond engineering to optioneering, which enables the exploration of engineering alternatives and their costs. This substantially improves the choices considered for any site development, including commercial, industrial, institutional, campus, and residential projects.
Specifically, SITEOPS enables civil engineering professionals, real estate developers, and land planners to:
- perform site configuration simulations that fully assess millions of layout, parking, grading, and drainage options for a site within hours instead of spending months evaluating a handful of options,
- produce preliminary cost estimates and conceptual designs faster,
- optimize site designs through advanced optioneering, and
- minimize overall costs while ensuring engineering quality.
Among the many users of SITEOPS are Stantec, Horrocks Engineers, Langan Engineering and Environmental Services, Timmons Group, and WSP.
