Earthwork is a heavy construction discipline that usually involves the processing of large quantities of earthen materials such as soil, rock, sand, etc. for civil engineering projects. The excavating work done with heavy equipment to prepare the land for the construction of highways, roads, bridges, tunnels, etc. is an example of an earthwork project. Whether you need to track actual field productions compared to the budgeted resources or produce proposals, HCSS offers earthwork estimating and excavation bidding software to help contractors of all sizes increase accuracy, save time, and minimize the possibility of costly mistakes.
HeavyBid is designed to bid estimated costs and produce proposals that span across all civil industries including earthwork. Estimators commonly use our earthwork cost estimating software because it makes the estimating process easier, more accurate, and more efficient. HeavyBid’s versatility allows estimators to break complex earthwork problems into solvable pieces that accurately reflect the costs.

Earthwork takeoff is modelling how the materials will be moved and the data entry and analysis of volume and area calculations. HCSS takes your produced bid items and quantity information created from external takeoff programs and inputs that data in HCSS HeavyBid software to accurately produce an earthwork cost estimate.
Then, send your earthwork estimate data to HeavyJob to easily track your project and gather real excavation production history for future bids. Our earthwork excavation estimating and bidding software is scalable to fit your company’s needs and helps streamline your entire construction estimating process so you can get accurate bids out the door in significantly less time.
Read how the foremen and office personnel at Stacy and Witbeck, Inc. used HeavyBid and HeavyJob software for a 45 mile commuter rail project that included two million cubic yards of earthwork, 30 bridges, 20 fill walls, 50 miles of ballasted track work, and more.
Everything the field and office needs to get the job done
In 10 minutes or less a day, foremen can easily send in daily time cards, daily logs, photos, quantities, and know whether they made or lost money at the end of the day compared to the budget.
Once the field information is submitted, project managers can approve time cards, analyze production and cost performance, track RFI’s and Submittals, create T&M bills, and produce professional pay applications in minutes.
Avoid rework by keeping everyone in sync
Instantly provide the field with everything they need to build the project including updated plans and revisions, outdated plan versions, contact directories, SWPPP reports, dig permits, specs sections, and other important information in the cloud.
Streamline communication by sending updated quantities to HeavyJob and record as-built information for owner documentation.
Plan work efficiently using earthwork specific calculators for excavation, dirt average end area, and more.
Turn every job into a profitable job
Hit budget and find profit by using your current time card data with Production Planner to simulate different what-if scenarios.
Adjust your crews, hours, and production rates to quickly find the ideal plan to match or exceed expected production.
Send a completed plan to foremen so they know exactly what to do when they start their day.
