Benefits of 2D CAD

  • Familiar Standards. ARC will work in your company’s CAD standards, or will utilize National CAD Standards (NCS).

 

  • An Extension of Your Staff. Let ARC’s CAD technicians serve as an extension of your drafting staff.  We are instantly there when you need us and gone when you don’t. No need to carry and pay the overhead expense when the need is no longer there.

  • Instant Access to Experts. ARC has expert CAD technicians ready to assist with all your CAD needs whether for project work, training, or help setting up your company’s standards.

  • Precision. CAD allows us to work out the details of your design very precisely within tolerances down to fractions of an inch.

  • Fast and Efficient. CAD enables the creation of templates that can be used over and over for fast editing. We can easily turn on and off layers to show only the information needed on a given plan.

 

  • Support for Legacy Data. While the industry is rapidly adopting 3D BIM technologies, there is still an enormous base of legacy drawings created in CAD. ARC currently can and will continue to support all your legacy CAD needs.

  • CAD for Facility Management. At the conclusion of construction, owners often need contract documents updated with all the changes made during construction to create a set of Record Drawings. Often these drawings need to feed into a Computer Aided Facility Management system (CAFM). ARC has the expertise to compile these changes into a comprehensive set of FM drawings, add/confirm space ID’s and generate square footage poly lines for input into your preferred CAFM platform.

We draft from scratch

If you don’t have time to provide us markups to be drafted, talk with one of our licensed architects and simply convey your design intent.  We’ll create a draft sketch for your review prior to having our drafters input it in CAD.
