Light Metal Framing with Full BIM Benefits.

Build Better with Holistic End-to-End Digital Solutions

Tomorrow’s technologies for design, fabrication and construction with light gauge steel framing, integrated into BIM workflows for clean, highly efficient projects.

Complete your light steel building projects faster, at less cost, with higher quality, ensuring a smooth and responsible experience for everyone involved – from idea to handover and beyond.

Enduring value

Solutions work as a unified system, generally with Autodesk® Revit® as a common environment. That helps unlock all of steel’s advantages, including near-zero waste, recyclability/reusability, and ease of insulation.

Design power

Getting digital construction projects right from the design stage maximizes efficiency and the potential savings. BIM tools let you intelligently consider more design options. For functionality. For life-time energy efficiency and sustainability. To pass on sound models, data and documentation.

Quality assurance

True BIM technology is built into Agacad software – drawings and take-offs update automatically as a model evolves. That’s unique. And it avoids errors, ensuring your data and documentation are always accurate and up to date. Clashes, too, are found and fixed in virtual space.

Access to advances

From automation to AR, IoT, AI and whatever’s next, new building technologies require timely data in the right form. Agacad enables that. In data management, we’re ahead of the industry. We have state-of-the-art methods and tools for precision exchange and classification of building information.

Expert resources

Solutions draw on not just our own tools and custom development expertise, but also partner technologies. And in-house engineers who know the industry inside and out. And an impressive international network of expert AEC practitioners and trainer-consultants.

Building lifecycle

For each core lifecycle process in building with metal framing – planning (design), execution (fabrication, logistics, on-site construction and assembly) and operation (facility management, maintenance, eventual demolition) – digitalization solutions create specific value for the diverse stakeholders.

Planning & design

BIM software, like Revit and Agacad applications, permits precise, efficient and flexible 3D modelling and management of building information with real-time collaboration by architects and structural and MEP engineers. Analysis in virtual space enables better design choices as well as clash detection and resolution with no physical cost. Data sharing and 3D visualizations help stakeholders spot errors and reconsider poor design decisions early. Thus, sound design and quality information get passed on for use in later project stages.

Eliminate routine drafting

Designers (architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers) get precise drawings and data straight from the 3D model for easy sharing with other stakeholders.

Improved productivity & quality

BIM managers enjoy increased productivity and higher project quality. In large part, that’s due to great coordination between different disciplines.

Forecast costs more accurately

Cost estimators forecast project costs better to find the most profitable design solutions. They also exchange information with contractors faster and more accurately.

Manage construction easily

Contractors and subcontractors more easily manage prefabrication planning and construction tasks. They save costs and resources and improve communication and collaboration. All this contributes to higher quality and better project results.

Be confident of your project results

Ultimate clients and project sponsors receive a digital prototype of their building to know early on what it will look like and cost. They can be confident that they will be able to live or work in a precisely designed metal-framed structure. One built without errors, on time and on budget.


BIM has enabled a surge in modular and prefabricated construction, where building modules and components are fully or partially manufactured off-site. A controlled factory environment facilitates efficiency gains, better quality control, and reduced energy use and waste. This notably shortens construction time on site. Agacad CNC Exporters automatically assemble framing members as modelled in Revit and send the data to CNC machines and CAD/CAM production lines for flexible manufacturing.

Error reduction

Highly precise data is sent to machines for accurate production. That saves resources and avoids waste.

Data directly to CNC

A paperless building process is made possible. Direct transmission of production data to CNC machines means there is no need to print drawings.

Enhanced quality control

For improved longevity and life-time energy efficiency.

Stakeholders who benefit

CNC Machine Operators, Manufacturers of metal-frame modules and building components, Production Managers, Contractors, Ultimate Clients, and Project Sponsors all benefit from BIM-to-Fabrication with Agacad solutions.


BIM enables better sequencing of building processes. It also provides more accurate take-offs to ensure delivery of the right materials at the right time. This eliminates unnecessary transport and storage (or waste) of materials and delays that extend work on site. Panel Packer is an Agacad toolset for sorting, packing and loading prefabricated building components. Accurate to 1 mm.

Error-proof link

The building model and its detailed data are digitally linked to logistics processes.

Efficient packing & transport planning

That means faster, less costly construction using less energy and producing less pollution and waste.

Stakeholders who benefit

Contractors, Site Managers, Warehouse Managers, Project Owners, Ultimate Clients, and Project Sponsors all benefit from BIM-to-Construction Logistics with Agacad solutions.

Builders' work

Proper digitalization of light gauge steel construction processes enables all those involved in the actual building work to confidently do their job well. Solutions also provide the data needed for other emerging building technologies with potential to further improve efficiency and reduce costs and waste: AR/VR applications, robotization of construction tasks and 3D printing, IoT uses and more.

Greater clarity

Builders have detailed, informative drawings and a 3D model to work from.

Fewer changes, less rework

That's the result of upfront elimination of clashes and other errors.

Easier coordination

When changes are needed, they're easy to carry out.

Stakeholders who benefit

Contractors and Subcontractors, Site Managers, Construction Supervisors, Other Construction Workers, Ultimate Clients, and Project Sponsors all benefit from Agacad solutions at the building stage.

Operation & beyond

High-quality physical assets are made possible by precision design and execution. Plus, there are digital assets to hand over to owners: as-built models with the information to drive effective facility management and maintenance for years to come. And when, in the far future, the building is decommissioned, design optimization early in the project will maximize reusability and recyclability.

High performance

Functionality and aesthetics, durability and longevity, energy efficiency and general sustainability.

Emerging tech

Smart facility management systems and future AI systems can tap into the required building data.

Minimized environmental impact

Over a building's operating lifetime and through eventual demolition.

Stakeholders that benefit

Owners, Ultimate Clients, Project Sponsors, Occupants, Facility Managers, Maintenance Teams, Society and the Planet all benefit from Agacad solutions at the operations stage. And beyond.
