Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) companies are increasingly looking to reduce overheads and risk when it comes to the provision of CAD services.

This is typified by the number of AEC companies' down-sizing their in-house CAD resource, preferring to outsource their requirements to a third party often known as a CAD bureau or CAD service.

Why are Companies Outsourcing CAD?

Outsourcing helps a company focus on its core business, creating a competitive advantage within its industry. Subcontracting also affords a company the chance to expect and receive the best results from the organisation it appoints. For larger organisations, outsourcing can also complement and support their existing in-house CAD service.

Some of the key benefits of outsourcing CAD services include:

  • Fast setup of the function or service
  • Increased energy and focus in non-core areas
  • Flexibility and ability to define the requisite service more readily
  • Improved control of budget
  • Support for our in-house CAD service when needed, helping reduce bottlenecks
  • Ability to clearly stipulate and control delivery dates
  • Increased flexibility to meet changing business conditions
