Welcome AIA SFX Members!

We are pleased to offer comprehensive, shared libraries for SFX Members.

Now, architectural firms with 9 or less employees can group together to form
virtual groups with up to 40 members.
A shared digital library.

Joining together with other
AIA SFX Member companies gives you
access to the library you need while
lowering the cost of compliance for all.

Easy, online access
to codes & standards.

All the essential content you need
in one holistic database.

No matter the size of your company, you need access
to the same building codes and standards as a large company.


Access to codes is often cost prohibitive, which means many companies simply do not have access, or must pick and choose the books needed most in their library.

This often ends up costing small companies more time and money, when buildings are not designed to code, permits are not granted on the first try or errors come up during construction.

MADCAD is now offering a solution to empower small architectural firms by providing affordable options to access to essential codes and standards.

Standard packages for your convenience.
We have pulled together the most frequently used
codes and standards into two packages.


Most architectural firms use the same set of model codes and standards.
We have created two tiers of subscriptions, with the option to add relevant
state codes and other popular standards.

Simultaneous users.
How shared subscriptions work.


Similar to a physical library, in MADCAD's digital library, each user must check out each book while they are viewing it. If a user is viewing a title with one simultaneous user, no one else will be able to view that title until the first user leaves. However, all 40 users of the library can technically be viewing different titles within the library at the same time.

We start all subscriptions with one simultaneous user per title, and increase users if and when it becomes necessary. It is possible to increase usage on any number of titles, while keeping the others at one user.
Registration is open.

Simply fill out a form to tell us which package you are interested in,
and we will match you up with other AIA SFX Members.
