IT Solutions

For the Buildings & Infrastructure and Product Design & Lifecycle Industries

Solutions & services to underpin the demanding workloads and future needs of your business

As one of the first Autodesk partners in the UK, we have over 30 years' experience working with architects, engineers, construction and product design professionals.  In that time, we have helped design professionals transition from paper-based-draughting to 2D CAD, grasp the complexities of today’s complex 3D modelling platforms, and adopt revolutionary concepts such as generative design. This experience has given us a unique perspective on the demands these applications place on your IT infrastructure that generic IT companies simply cannot have.

We partner with best of breed technology partners to bring you the right solutions to meet your business needs. Underpinned by our comprehensive range of support services to give you peace of mind that your core infrastructure and critical business applications will be available when you need them.
