Linear project Americas was a sponsor of the 15th Annual American Council of Engineering Companies of South Carolina/ SC-DOT meeting on October 24 in Columbia, South Carolina. This conference was attended by approximately 80 engineers and planners from the South Carolina Department of Transportation and 200 engineers from major engineering companies. Eddie Reeps, the local TILOS Associate in the South East, and Lorne Duncan ( Managing Director in the Americas) provided demos and answered lots of questions during a very busy day.
TILOS was well received by civil engineers and planners working for the state and private companies. Of great interest were some of the new features of TILOS 8 – specifically the mass haul diagram and calculator and the integration of TILOS with Google Earth. To quote one engineer:
“TILOS is the planning tool that we should all be using in the South”.
