Quest Earthwork Quest's Earthwork Software Simplifies Cut and Fill Calculations
SARASOTA, Fla. - Quest Solutions Earthwork software easily and accurately generates cut and fill quantities for earthwork projects, the area of highest financial risk in contractor bids. The software can measure quantities from project plans drawn in cross sections, plan view or profile view, to provide quick, precise calculations for a professional bid.
Quest's Earthwork software eliminates the need to manually grid-off cut and fill quantities. Instead, contractors use a standard digitizer board to convert existing and proposed elevations from drawn plans into a digital file. Earthwork then uses these areas
and volumes to instantly calculate all cut and fill quantities. Designed to integrate with Quest Estimator software, Earthwork quantities easily export directly to the job file.
Additionally, Earthwork can convert digital plans into three dimensional color site views. Users can rotate the image and zoom in or out to verify the accuracy of the site at any angle or magnification. To ensure accurate measurements, Earthwork provides grid staking reports that display cut and fill amounts and locations across the site as well as substrata calculations that display quantities and volumes between cross sections.
Additionally, contractors can integrate other job-site related technologies with Earthwork. Users can import .DWG and .DWX files from AutoCAD and can work seamlessly with all brands of Laser and GPS systems.
Based in Sarasota, Fla., Quest Solutions has been providing high-quality estimating software to the construction industry since 1986.
