Years in business
Pittsburgh roots. Nationwide impact.
We are proud to be forged in the “Steel City,” the backbone of the building and construction industry in America. It is a hub for entrepreneurship, technology, ingenuity, and industrial force. As we have expanded our operations nationwide, we continue to hold these values close to our hearts.
Traditional Work Ethic. Modern Execution. Since 1993.
After 12+ years of sharpening his craft and working at the forefront of CAD technology throughout the 80s, including using the earliest versions of AutoCAD, James Mauler founded Mauler CADD Group as a humble one-man shop.
The company is renamed to Cadnetics, takes on a partner, and opens its first physical office in downtown Pittsburgh in the Bank Tower.
Cadnetics is one of the first companies to adopt the newly invented LEICA Disto technology. This revolutionary hand-held laser scanning device replaced the then-standard use of tape measures, massively improving the accuracy and speed of measurements.
1998 – 2001
Cadnetics opens its Visualization (VIS) division, landing a groundbreaking animation project for the new Pittsburgh Convention Center. This catapulted Cadnetics as a VIS leader in the greater Pittsburgh area.
Cadnetics moves offices to the South Side of Pittsburgh on Carson St. to support its continued team growth and service expansion.
2005 – 2010
Cadnetics thrives through a major boom and bust period in the building and construction industry. Cadnetics is again an early adopter of new technology and processes, including Building Information Modeling (BIM), Autodesk REVIT, and LIDAR Laser Scanning.
2015 – 2019
Cadnetics wins multiple awards recognizing business growth and great workplace culture. These include back-to-back years for Fastest Growing 100 businesses in Pittsburgh, ranked #91 and then #33 the following year, as well as Best Places to Work in 2016, 2017, and 2019.
Cadnetics outgrows its office again, moving the headquarters to Greentree Foster Plaza, and kicks off a major expansion effort beyond Pittsburgh. Sets new goals of becoming a nationally known brand and industry leader over the next 5-10 years.
Cadnetics wins the 50 Fastest Growing businesses in Pittsburgh again in the midst of the pandemic, this time coming in at #10 overall and #1 in our revenue category.
2021 – Present
After weathering the pandemic years, Cadnetics returned stronger than ever. We strengthened our leadership team and pivoted to a remote, nationwide team. This move embraces the benefits of a national presence and a flexible workforce, giving us greater access to the best talent in our industry and allowing us to better serve clients locally and across the country.

Transforming the building industry for a better-built world, together.
We live by our Core Values
We are a force to be reckoned with. We are unapologetically hard-working, ambitious, boundary-pushing, and energetic. Our clients depend on us to deliver top-notch work. We don’t just check boxes and do the bare minimum to meet expectations – we strive for excellence in everything we do. We do work we’re proud of, every time.
We are true partners with our clients. They depend on us for critical roles in their projects, and we take that responsibility seriously. We are great communicators and team players. We under-promise and over-deliver. We do what we say, on time, on budget, with unwavering commitment and enthusiasm, every time.
In our line of work, details don’t just matter, they are absolutely critical. Sloppy work is simply unacceptable. On the rare occasion that we make a mistake, we accept full ownership and accountability, take immediate action, and go above and beyond to make it right.
Relationships are at the core of our business. We do right by our clients and team members, and treat others as we’d want to be treated. We act with integrity, honestly, transparency, fairness, and mutual respect. We prioritize enduring relationships that stand the test of time over quick wins and short-sighted compromises.
Our team culture is our backbone. We prioritize collaboration and mutual goals over individual efforts. We over-communicate and check in frequently to keep us aligned and working towards the same objectives. We celebrate successes of ourselves and others as a win for everyone at Cadnetics, including our clients.
