Cassidy Forsythe was formed in July 2014 with the aim of providing the best highway design and 3D modelling services to local authorities, consultants, architects and contractors
Company founder Martin Young, who has over 35 years’ experience in the sector, is a firm believer in the power of 3D modelling and he personally trains highway designers in using the latest software.
This approach has helped Cassidy Forsythe to quickly establish itself as a leader in its field, working with industry giants such as Tata Steel Projects, Aecom, Capita, Amey and Balfour Beatty.
This ebook explores Cassidy Forsythe’s services and showcases some of the company’s work across a number of high-profile projects.
It discusses the BIM revolution and the importance of a “single source of truth” when designing models, as well as the need to think beyond 3D to consider BIM processes like 4D, 5D and 6D when selecting a software package.
Cassidy Forsythe is an industry leader in the use of Openroads, a complete update of the old MXRoads software rewritten by Bentley Systems. Openroads tools produce models compliant with Design Manual for Roads & Bridges standards, as well as meeting key requirements of BIM Level 2, such as 5D cost estimation.
The ebook includes a host of case studies demonstrating how Cassidy Forsythe has put its highways and 3D modelling expertise into action on projects from Norfolk to Oxfordshire to North Tyneside.
There are also details of the training offered by Cassidy Forsythe to help engineering teams make the most of both MXRoads and the new Openroads tools. Sessions can be tailored to cater for complete beginners or more experienced engineers and cover from highway design and 3D modelling to drainage design, earthworks modelling and quantification, and temporary works modelling.
