Welcome to our site

SNS‘s team of professionals has over 75 years of combined experience using, configuring, providing customizations and enhancements for Autodesk Utility Design. We knew AUD before it was AUD. Our guiding business principle is that adding value to the customer leads to competitive advantage and profit. Furthermore, customer value is best added through intimate customer relationships and disciplined business/engineering processes.

Experiencing Turnover?

Utilities are losing senior designers. Help offset this loss of valuable knowledge by implementing Autodesk Utility Design now. AUD can support beginner designers and help build consistency throughout your organization. AUD can cut a designers work load by 50% from using straight AutoCAD. Experience the value of having automated material selection and ordering.
