 ‘DIRECT DESIGN SOLUTIONS’ is an interactive tool which enables the user to produce outline designs and obtain performance specifications, AGL layouts and schematics, bill of quantities and budget supply and installation costs as required.  The tool is user friendly, simple and easy to use, one enquiry, one detailed solution provided instantaneously, on line, on time.

The system is intended to provide designers and contractors’ assistance in airfield development and upgrade programs, but can equally be utilised for concept design and tender stages. 
Our data base is constantly updated to ensure compliance with current international and local standards and recommendations.  The detailed design stage requires more of a human interface and for this reason we advise contacting our design team directly whose services may be called upon to provide expanded design solutions and detailed specifications to see you through the detailed design, construction and maintenance phases.
