The acquisition merges U.S. CAD’s expanded BIM portfolio with Managed Design’s local industry expertise to better serve the needs of the Minnesota AEC community

Newport Beach, California, February 22, 2018 – U.S. CAD, a leading full-service BIM technology consultant and Autodesk Platinum Partner, announces today its acquisition of Managed Design, an Autodesk Gold Partner that has been serving the AEC community in Minnesota and surrounding states for more than 25 years. The acquisition will support Managed Design’s and U.S. CAD’s shared mission of delivering professional, quality BIM solutions to partners and clients operating in the architecture, engineering, construction, and infrastructure industries.

“Managed Design has been a trusted partner for many years to firms in the local area,” states Daniel J. Counts, CEO of U.S. CAD. “With U.S. CAD’s expanded portfolio of BIM services, hardware, and software, the local team will now be able to provide even more value to the existing customer base. We look forward to introducing this full suite of capabilities to the Minnesota market and further strengthening our relationships with local firms.”

As part of the acquisition, Managed Design will be incorporated under the U.S. CAD brand, but the company will continue to operate out of its current offices and training facilities.

“We are excited to join U.S. CAD and leverage the company’s expertise to realize our shared goal of improving the quality and efficiency of design processes for our clients,” states Darin Peterson, Director of Operations at Managed Design. “Our Minnesota team is dedicated to providing excellent service to our client base, and customers should be assured that business will conduct as usual during this transition.”
