Bowland CAD Services is the trading name of myself, Jason Merrin, I started the business in May 2015 to provide expert freelance design and draughting services to an increasing network of clients. I live and work in the Forest of Bowland AONB, Lancashire. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​I work remotely from my own drawing office, and cater for clients all over the UK. I am based literally in the geographical center of Great Britain, and am happy to attend design meetings and site surveys if required. 
Due to the recent Covid-19 situation, many people have started to video conference, which is something I am fully equipped to do. I can share my screen view with you and discuss (in real time), designs and details of models and drawings.
My engineering career starting in 1988 when I began my apprenticeship as a fitter, welder, fabricator at Clayton Commercials Ltd, manufacturing road haulage tankers. 
In 1999 I was put in charge of brand new CNC/CAD/CAM machines as part of my role as fabrication & sheet metal foreman. This is why I started to learn Computer Aided Design and how my career turned towards CAD. I did my first paid CAD job in 2000, and that first client is still a client to this day.
I have extensive experience and proven knowledge of welding, fabrication, sheet metal, site fitting, etc., and I am fully up to date with all the latest manufacturing techniques including; 2D & 3D laser cutting, water jet cutting, 3D printing, etc.
My expertise, the latest 3D CAD software & the latest and best hardware combine to guarantee the most accurate and cost efficient workflow possible.
I have worked on the design of a wide variety of projects, ranging from private homes to the O² Arena, and including; major retail premises, food manufacturing plants, industrial plant, waste water treatment sites, cinemas, social housing, leisure centres, schools, banks, NHS hospitals, HM prisons and more. 
Projects include; feature stairs, balustrades, balconies, fire escapes, stage & lighting equipment, spiral stairs, temporary works, structural steel, structural glazing, entrance canopies, exhibition displays, street furniture, ornamental security, bridges, roof access, water filtration, prison & bank security, etc.
