Plateia is a powerful road design and reconstruction software developed by CGS Labs. It offers a range of features and tools that streamline the road design process, from inputting survey data to creating complex 3D BIM road models and documentation. The software’s user interface and workflows are designed to be consistent with road design engineering practices, making it easy to use for professionals in the field.

This webinar will demonstrate how to design a road using the Plateia software. Firstly, we will show the creation of a digital terrain model, the making of alignment and profile, and the calculation of superelevation in general. Secondly, we will take a more detailed look at the creation of cross-sections and planimetry, which are crucial since both the quantity take-off and the drawing of a 3D model are based on planimetry quantities. Thirdly, we will create a BIM model of the roadway, and finally, we will provide a general overview of the workflow for creating reconstructions.

Webinar topics:

  • Digital terrain modelling: Different options for creating the surface.
  • Alignment: Designing alignment with different methods and creating sample lines.
  • Profile and Superelevation: Creating a profile and calculating superelevation.
  • Cross-Sections: Creating TCS elements and demonstrating the Macro tool.
  • Quantity Take-off: Planimetry methods and quantity calculation.
  • Volume Calculation: A tool for quick volume calculation.
  • 3D model: Drawing a 3D roadway model.
  • Attributes: Attaching sets of attributes to objects.
  • IFC export: Exporting the BIM model to IFC and the advantages of the IFC format.
  • Reconstruction/rehabilitation: A general overview of the workflow for creating reconstructions.

Who should join the webinar?

If you are a civil engineer involved in road design, this webinar is a must-attend event! Whether you’re new to the Plateia program or a seasoned expert, you’ll gain valuable insights and learn about the latest advancements in road design.
