Independent sports pitch design consultancy Surfacing Standards has implemented the Volumetrics and Visual Reality modules from Causeway’s Professional Design Suite (PDS) to help streamline its design processes.

Surfacing Standards is one of the UK’s leading providers of specialist services, advice and tailored solutions for artificial sports surfaces. Design of artificial sports surfaces is a complex process requiring precise calculation of the depth of different materials layers, while efficient drainage is also crucial.

The company had previously been calculating cut and fill volumes and designing drainage systems manually and recognised that software could help to speed up these core processes. It was critical that there be no compromise on accuracy or design quality and, having considered a number of options, PDS Volumetrics was selected.

As presentations to clients are very important in this market sector, Surfacing Standards will also be making use of PDS Visual Reality, which allows designs to be visualised in 3D, complete with walk-throughs, without the need for specialist rendering software.
