CAD Models – Services We Provide

At Michael Gallie & Partners, innovation lies at the heart of our operations. We believe in a simple mantra: if it can be measured, it can be modelled. We pride ourselves on crafting tailor-made solutions that align with our clients’ unique modelling aspirations. Although our primary expertise lies in the realm of the built environment, our capabilities extend beyond these boundaries. A notable instance? Our task of measuring an iconic Guinness World Record attempt for the colossal beach ball on the River Thames. We employed state-of-the-art laser scanning and CAD modelling techniques to ascertain the accurate diameter of the beach ball.


Navigating the diverse architectural landscape, we have garnered extensive experience in delivering quality CAD modelling services to a varied clientele. While we’re committed to addressing your specific project nuances and budget constraints, our offerings can generally be classified into three distinct tiers, each resonating with varying intricacies:

  1. Mass Models: This category captures the fundamental essence of a structure. Envision simple blocks, encapsulating the core heights, without any intricate architectural nuances.
  2. Rights of Light-Styled Models: Elevating the details, these models incorporate the basic skeletal structure, highlighting openings, cornices, and cills in an outline manner.
  3. Comprehensive Architectural Models: Tailored for those seeking meticulous details, these models can encompass both exterior and interior specifics. They can be customized to spotlight different levels of intricacies based on distinct areas. Collaborative discussions during the costing phase ensure the output aligns seamlessly with your vision and budgetary framework.


An added advantage? All these models can be mapped on the OS grid, guaranteeing accurate positioning relative to the wider environment. The backbone of our 3D CAD models lies in leveraging cutting-edge static laser scanners. Post scanning, the point cloud is directly integrated into Autodesk AutoCAD, although, we’re equipped to offer alternative CAD formats upon request. For those seeking an added layer of detail, we can also provide the point cloud in a range of industry-approved formats.
