CAD Concepts was created by Manuel A. Ayala eight years ago to provide high-level computer support to the following disciplines:

  • Architectural
  • Engineering
  • Interiors
  • Landscape/Civil
  • Production
  • Graphical

CAD Concepts provides services to firms predominately in the Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York area.

Manuel Ayala is uniquely qualified due to his ten years of experience as a staff architect on a multitude of projects (residential, commercial, hospital and educational) and his experience as a CAD system manager for a 100 + person firm.

These experiences make so that he understands how computers and software can be used in a firm’s design, production and presentation process.

CAD Concepts provides a full range of computer services designed to increase a firm’s productivity and efficiency in a cost-effective manner.
