I love software that makes the lives of architects, engineers & contractors more efficient.

My name is Edward Surgeon and I am a co-founder and director of Database Aided Design.
Database Aided Design (DAD) is a web-based software that makes construction projects more streamlined and productive for Architects, Engineers and Contractors by eliminating the enormous amounts of administration and manual data entry in one of the construction industry's most fundamental workflows: co-ordination and production of drawings and shop drawings.
Design teams lose huge amounts of valuable time on projects to the inefficiencies of how CAD/BIM models are converted into drawings / shop drawings and then uploaded into Document Management Systems.
DAD is web based platform that solves this problem. DAD fully automates key drawing production processes which completely frees design teams to focus all their energy on real design work and problem solving, rather than losing vast amounts of time on the project to the "administration of work".
With DAD, design teams achieve productivity and quality levels otherwise unattainable using conventional methods.
