Welcome to the Oakley CAD Services Ltd Website providing details on our services relating to Computer Aided Design along with Building Information Modelling and Management.

Originally Computer Aided Design (CAD) and then Building Information modelling Modelling (BIM) was a method of electronic production to provide a competitive edge. This has now changed where it is business critical to any design or construction firm in the AEC Industry. Oakley Cad Services Ltd has been involved for over 30 years in the AEC industry, delivering transformational change and understands your business. We work with you to maximise the efficiencies of your design data production, reduce costly errors, improve interoperability, and help you deliver more for less to support your business, project and client’s needs. The industry is changing where designers and constructors are no longer required to deliver a building or built asset, but the structured data to facilitate lifecycle requirements.
