Capabilities and limitations

We even read accurately from scanned and handwritten reports

We keep all your data secure & private.
  • We read the most challenging document types.
  • There is no need to split the geotechnical reports into individual boreholes yourself, simply drag and drop the full report and our software handles the rest
Use cases

Automate time consuming manual transcription from PDF reports

  1. Gathering up as much data as possible about the site is key in reducing Geotech risk.
  2. Extensive searches of borehole data are a critical part of this process.
  3. With Civils.ai, simply drag and drop PDF geotech reports to extract borehole data.
  4. We extract the data into digital files which integrate with your modelling software and downstream tools.
  5. Create an end to end digital workflow for gathering data on your projects.

Kick start your geological modelling workflow

  1. Extract borehole data into files which integrate with your modelling software including Excel, AGS, GIS Shapefiles and DXF files.
  2. Visualise the data yourself with our 2D and 3D section viewing tools.
  3. Make any final edits to the data to suit your preferences.
  4. Download the digitial files and integrate into your downstream software like OpenGround or LeapFrog for detailed modelling.

We've helped multi-national firms build their geotechnical database

  1. We have experience in helping firms digitise vast archives of geotechnical information including 10,000+ boreholes.
  2. Investing in your company database helps you to avoid rework and is becoming best practice for all geotechnical organisations.
  3. With our GIS mapping solution we can offer a lightweight version of the database ourselves but specialise in helping you build your own by providing you with high quality data from your historic project logs.

Why use Civils.ai?

Unforseen ground conditions are one of the biggest risks to successfully bidding and delivering infrastructure projects.

Minimise the risk costly surprises with your site by assimilating and analysing your data for risks.

The quality and availability of your geotech data is an edge over your competition.

Invest in the quality of your geotechnical to give you confidence to optimise your designs and deliver more on your projects.

Use AI to gather and structure data from numerous different sources.

Convert entire PDF geotechical reports into geo-referenced digital boreholes plotted on your private map.

Download your data in AGS formats ready for integrating into OpenGround and Leapfrog.

We save your staff's time by eliminating manual transcription of borehole data.

Our solution is 80% cheaper than asking your Engineers and Geologists to manually transcribe boreholes themselves.

Civils.ai pays for itself on your first project (not considering all our other features).

Don't just take our word for it

"Before discovering Civils.ai, our team was bogged down with endless hours of manual data entry. This repetitive task not only hampered our productivity but even led to cases of carpal tunnel. Since using we have not only enhanced our operational efficiency but also fostered a healthier work environment."
Edward Armstrong
Geoff Pook
Principal Engineer
"The ability to transcribe data from borehole logs and reports, no matter how old, has been a great time saver as we are have access to vast data sets of existing ground investigation data but much of it is not in AGS format. We have also been very pleased with the collaborative approach to enhancing the features with our suggestions taken on board to enhance the data output and are excited about what new features are in the pipeline."
Edward Armstrong
Omid Khalaj
Principal Engineer
"Integrating Civils.ai into our operational workflow has been a game-changer for our team. Their AI's ability to digitize and make vast sets of PDF data, such as geotech reports, has significantly improved our efficiency. The responsiveness to feedback in launching new features to search and visualize data have also been welcomed. Civils.ai has not only enhanced our operational workflows but also led to better quality of submissions and impressed our clients."
Edward Armstrong
Miro Briss
Senior Project Manager
"The RAG model Civils.ai introduced to us caught our attention as it can help us to form a foundation for considerable improvements in change and risk management. The Civils.ai team has a great attitude with a fast response time, as you would expect from a start-up team aiming to develop part of a solution to resolve productivity friction in the construction industry."
Frequently asked questions
Answers to common questions about our services for individuals and companies.

Searching for technical information across construction project reports and drawings is a drain on resources with a reported 40% of construction data being used by the right people at the right time.

This is especially true in time restricted activities such as tendering for new projects or evaluating tender submissions.

Working mainly on tender support we have proven Civils.ai to save up to 20% of the resource cost needed on the project.

By helping your team members get access to specifications, building codes, CAD and drawing information we've also found Civils.ai improves submission quality and overall team morale as less time is spent on repetitive and manual tasks.

We also include our online AI in Construction Training Course with all our software licenses, meaning in the worst case you are upskilling your staff with relevant industry skills whilst testing a real AI solution.

Your uploaded data is stored within a relational database and cloud object storage with our best in class cloud infrastructure provider. All document data is anonymised and un-anonymised data is only viewable the user account from which the data was uploaded.

All data is transmitted through TLS and uses best practice encryption.

Yes you can automatically to delete any data you uploaded at any time by clicking the delete button when you are in your project database.

You can also write to us to request that we delete your data at any time and all data related to you will be deleted when you delete your account.

Data is stored securely on servers in the United States, by a vetted, best in class cloud infrastructure provider.

For businesses with data residency restrictions we can arrange to store data within your locality.

Yes, you certainly can.

Our system is currently optimised to process individual borehole record PDF's but you can also upload entire geo reports and we will extract the data.

We currently support any form of PDF document or report.

You can upload anything from contracts or specifications to design guides to fine tune your project AI and train it to answer questions on your documents. For geotechnical reports we can extract borehole data.

Our technology currently does not support the spatial interpretation of geometry and it does not support numerical reasoning and calculations.

For extraction of data from modern PDF's, we achieve over 95% accuracy inclding from complex table structures. For older PDF's (sampled before 1975) these are more challenging and such a high degree of accuracy cannot be guaranteed, but we are sure you will still be pleasantly surprised at how accurate the results are.

We use maximum payment security. If your card is not accepted firstly, disable your VPN or proxy server. Then make sure your name, CVC and postal code match the one on your payment card and of your bank account. Also your card country should be the same as your billing country. And finally make sure you enable 3D Secure or similar authentication on your card with your bank.

We are not currently hiring but always interested to meet new and interesting people for potential future collaborations. We suggest that you join our Discord community and introduce yourself and we can take it from there.

The discord community is also a great place to meet other like-minded digital engineers and share your ideas and we host online events from time to time.
