At A-C-D we specialise in providing draughting services for Structural Steelwork and Architectural Metalwork industries and offer the highest quality of professional and accurate drawings to our clients utilising the latest Tekla Structures packages to create 3-dimensional models for your project. This advanced technology enables effective component 3D modelling and detailing of Structural Steelwork and Architectural Metalwork such as feature staircases, canopies, glazed balconies, balustrading etc.

Based in the West Midlands and with over 25 years’ experience in the industry, we have worked with companies throughout the UK and Ireland to produce projects of varying size and complexity. We take a proactive and tailored approach to achieve our client’s needs and expectations, and offer our services as an external drawing office or as an addition to your in-house design team.

Using structural and architectural drawing information and site survey data, ACD will combine and coordinate existing and new design elements within your project to create an accurate, intelligent and data-rich 3D model.



This provides a visualisation of the structure and ensures that any design issues are resolved before manufacturing commences as well as coordinating with existing site conditions. A-C-D utilises Building Information Modelling (BIM) as part of their Tekla Structures package, Tekla BIMsight, to:

  • Increase 3D modelling and drafting efficiency with design coordination
  • Provide one platform for all project members for live collaboration
