BIM Infrastructure Design

Flexible, intuitive software for traffic sign design to the current TSRGD.

Incorporating post & foundation calculations, BIM modelling and scheduling tools, PDS Sign can run inside AutoCAD or as a standalone product in our own CAD system. Intelligent, reactive legend and borders help produce accurate and detailed designs which can be sited in full 3D, complete with BIM data to provide a project-wide solution for traffic sign design.
