How can we help?

Digital Dirt understands that every machine control user has a unique grading process. We work directly with project managers, laborers, and operators to tailor the 3D models to meet the specific needs of each contractor and each project. Our takeoffs are completed to only report on the information our clients need — no extras! We also offer training services to help our clients learn the process of data preparation for models, takeoffs, and project set-up. Please request our Services and Rates Schedule for more detail on the extensive machine control services that we offer!

When it comes to machine control, we set the grade.
