Feasibility Planning

Find and evaluate a full range of construction alignment alternatives for your rail or road corridor


When planning a civil construction project, it’s important to consider a construction alignment analysis and see what all your alternatives and paths are in order to create the most efficient, best plan for completion. Our advanced construction software includes feasibility planning tools to help engineers define and optimize corridors and alignments from A to B. Trimble is your partner to create a completely connected construction plan, from feasibility plan to building to completing the project.

Discover the Best Rail Corridor or Road Alignment Options

Automate the construction planning process to create the optimal option for your road or rail project with our advanced alignment software. View all feasible alternatives to help make the best decisions when working on your construction plan. Immediately evaluate and consider multiple factors simultaneously during the construction alignment analysis phase.

  • Optimal tool for both small road construction projects as well as large and complex road highway and high-speed rail projects
  • Combines GIS data, unit costs, and geometric parameters
  • Gather and analyze the existing situation, design standards, terrain, geological, and hydrological data, environmental areas and property ownership in one software platform
  • Evaluate how noise impacts the community around the potential road corridor
  • Run all data factors along with cost information in a simultaneous optimization process on all types of rail and road construction projects

Plan for Sustainability with Better Environmental and Public Outcomes

The CO2 Calculator will forecast carbon dioxide emissions that will be generated during the construction of a road or rail project, including the expected CO2 output for moving materials, preparing land, and constructing structures along each construction alignment.

You can also forecast the CO2 emissions that will be produced by traffic using the new infrastructure, enabling major construction projects to evaluate millions of alternatives to understand the viability and to understand and optimize the tradeoffs between cost, CO2 impact of construction, and the long term CO2 impact of operating the infrastructure.

  • CO2 Calculator enables users to forecast CO2 emissions that will be produced in the construction phase of the civil project
  • Quantm shows a display of impacted traffic after construction project completion on the finished road
  • View daily traffic flow and average speed
  • Environmental impact on fuel consumption
  • Additional details showcase vehicle parameters
  • Noise indicators enables users to analyze how noise will affect the community around project

Reduce Financial Risk with Alternative Alignment Transparency

We understand the very early construction planning stage usually involves a manual process of evaluating and all possible road corridors and alternative options. This becomes very costly, both in time and actual dollars spent. Our Quantm alignment planning software automates the planning process, giving you all possible options to make faster, better decisions. Insert all types of construction costs to get a more accurate estimate of overall project budget. Invest in a better future by choosing feasibility software with detailed cost specifications built into construction project calculations. Gain faster validation when generating multiple alternative routes to create the optimal alignment for your road or rail project.

  • Reduce investor risk and provide more accurate estimates for tightly constrained budgets
  • Insert all types of factors with accurate costs that affect the alignment of a construction project.
  • Factors that can be part of our feasibility planning software include the cost of structures such as bridges, tunnels, retaining walls, the cost of earthworks and excavation of different material types, the cost of expropriation of land, and the cost of road pavement or rail track and ballast

Reduce Planning Time

Trimble’s construction alignment software automatically calculates all alternative corridors and compares thousands of different alignment alternatives to find the most optimal line, without manual calculations. Gain faster road or rail validation when generating multiple alternative routes to create the optimal alignment for your civil construction project.

  • Automate the alignment planning process with our feasibility analysis
  • Visualize true 3-dimensional optimizations to view proposed alignments in a real-life environment
  • Quickly assess multiple corridors and feasible alternatives in a short period of time to support the decision-making process
  • Export construction alignments to Google Earth
