BLUERIDGE Analytics, Inc. announced the general availability of SITEOPS Single Pad, a web-hosted, commercial land development cost-optimization solution. BLUERIDGE Analytics calls SITEOPS "CAD with a Brain" -- breakthrough software that reduces the time and cost associated with land infrastructure development. Real estate developers, retailers and civil engineers/design professionals use SITEOPS to perform real-time feasibility simulations on screen and as an advanced optimization engine. Once a project is submitted for full optimization analysis, processing takes less than 24 hours, while trillions of permutations are computed using advanced evolutionary computing algorithms. The result is three to five site designs providing the best layout, grading and stormwater drainage options with cost-optimized estimates.
SITEOPS visually represents the proposed layouts, grading and stormwater management plans so that professional engineers can review and use them as they prepare and refine their designs throughout the land development process. The software dramatically speeds up the process for site feasibility planning and initial engineering designs. SITEOPS delivers significant time savings and reduces site development costs, while limiting risks around development decisions and allowing for faster store openings. Mike Detwiler, CEO and President of BLUERIDGE Analytics, says, "SITEOPS is patent-pending technology that is revolutionizing the civil engineering industry. SITEOPS puts the technology into the hands of land developers, retailers and contractors, allowing them to make decisions faster and with better information."
Customers include Lowe's Companies, Inc., Langan Engineering and Environmental Services, Inc., Freeland & Kauffman, Inc., Southern Civil Engineers, Upham, Inc., Lincks & Associates, Inc. and Bohler Engineering. "I have been impressed by the efficiencies created by the software's capacity to generate multiple, optimized design options. The potential impact of this technology is so substantial for our firm and the entire civil engineering industry that Langan Engineering is serving as a beta test site for SITEOPS," said Mike Semeraro, Principal, Langan Engineering and Environmental Services, Inc.
See SITEOPS live at the ICSC International Council of Shopping Centers Spring Convention in Las Vegas, NV, May 20 to 23, 2007 in the trade expo hall, booth #970. We invite you to attend a special presentation showing the features and benefits of SITEOPS Single Pad on Monday, May 21st, at 1:00 p.m. in BLUERIDGE Analytics' booth.
