MADCAD to Manage Online Codes, Standards

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Comment | More

The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded MADCAD.com a one-year subscription contract for online access to more than 800 building codes and standards from ASHRAE, ASME, BHMA, ICC and NFPA.

The contract will provide architects, engineers, specifiers and facility managers at the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Air Force Civil Engineering Support Agency, and U.S. Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence with access to non-government standards that are referenced in the Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS). UFGS is used in specifying construction for the military services.

“We are very excited to have been selected to provide service to the Department of Defense,” said Pelin Atasoy, CEO of MADCAD.com. “With unique features such as simultaneous search capability and cross-referenced HTML format content, our system increases efficiency during code research. I believe DoD users will save a lot of time using MADCAD.com.”

The contract also includes the updating of the Unified Master Reference List (UMRL), which lists publications referenced in the UFGS, by MADCAD.com. UMRL is used in the SpecsIntact software, which is an automated system for preparing standardized military facility construction specifications and is developed and maintained by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

MADCAD.com, founded in 1995, bills itself as “the first and only web-based subscription service that provides online access to building codes and standards from major codes and standards developing societies in cross-referenced HTML format.” Its database includes more than 10,000 codes and standards that the company says can be searched simultaneously in less than a second.
