These four civil-related modular programs, working together, provide the ultimate civil package that will help you dramatically increase your productivity and create better designs.

Here is a complete toolset that allows you to move into 3D as needed. Get 3D intersection design, multi-baseline road networks, lot layout, storm and utility analysis and design, plus much, much more. If you can imagine it, the Carlson Civil Suite has the industry-leading software tools to make it a reality. Carlson Civil Suite 2014 has new 3D symbols in  its library and 3D support in Field-to-Finish and Viewer Window. Edits to the profile can update the sewer network model. Also, the Report Formatter updates allow for more customized and better looking reports.

CE News reported a business case study showing the extensive review that the civil engineering firm Dewberry went through to ultimately choose the Carlson Civil Suite for its 40 offices nationwide. “Carlson works for us,” says Dave Palumbo, PE, Technology Manager for Infrastructure Services for Dewberry. “It is highly cost effective and people are doing better work… I think they are also having fun!

The Carlson line of software comes with 64-bit capabilities, is Windows 8 compatible, and works on AutoCAD® and IntelliCAD®.

Choose the suite if you need all of the powerful solutions and save. Or, choose them individually, based on the demands of your business. However you use Carlson Software Civil solutions, you’ll find both your creativity and productivity dramatically increased.

Detailed reports in a variety of ways, plus cut/fill labels, color maps and centroids in the drawing file can be produced, all with easy-to-use tools.


System Requirements



“I asked Jim Carlson for your email address because I wanted to express my appreciation to you and your Tech Support team. They are outstanding – in every way.

They – ALL of them – are patient, friendly, upbeat, knowledgeable and unambiguous in their instruction(s). I feel put at ease, and am unafraid to ask any question because none of them have ever acted as if any of my questions are trivial, obvious or incompetent. This is particularly true of one Brian Hammer.

Again, it is a pleasure to work with these guys.”
