Contech Engineered Solutions Releases a New Stormwater Design Tool
Contech Engineered Solutions launched a new on-line program for designing stormwater detention and infiltration systems constructed from Contech corrugated metal pipe (CMP). The new tool will allow engineers to quickly prepare designs for estimates and project meetings, and be more efficient with their time. The free tool is available at www.conteches.com/dyods.
The new tool, known as the Design Your Own Detention System (DYODS®) tool, fully automates the layout process for stormwater detention and infiltration systems. The tool’s unique “drag and drop” feature allows users to customize the layout to meet site specific conditions and optimizes the design and layout for cost effectiveness. The tool also provides CAD and PDF files that can be used for creating plans and specs, and for estimating total installed costs. Users of the tool can design multiple systems per project, and save them for future use.
“Customers have told us they want more on-line design tools,” said Tom Slabe, President of Contech’s Stormwater Solutions. “Our new design tool provides engineers a flexible, on-demand tool that can significantly reduce the amount of time needed to design underground stormwater management systems.”
The new DYODS tool joins Contech’s other on-line stormwater tools including the Low Impact Development Site Planner, the Rainwater Harvesting Runoff Reduction Calculator, and the Design Your Own Hydrodynamic Separator.
