Hydro-Brake® Optimum is now part of Site3D

We’re excited to announce that the Hydro-Brake® Optimum flow control is now included in the Site3D civil engineering design software platform.

The Site3D platform helps engineers to manage engineering projects for a range of applications, including residential, commercial and critical infrastructure, and incorporating Hydro-Brake® Optimum now allows users to precisely tailor water quantity management for storm, surface, foul or combined water across a wide range of flows.

Site3D joins Autodesk and Causeway Flow in offering our market-leading flow control as part of its suite of design resources.

Alongside these resources, engineers can also design and specify flow controls and stormwater treatment systems in the Hydro International online design tool. The tool delivers detailed hydraulic design information as well as drawings that can be incorporated into design projects and submittal packages.
