SEE Electrical Building + : It's the ideal software for Electricians who want to create professional drawings according to international standards, and deliver reliable and high quality documentation of their projects



SEE Electrical Building + Basic



SEE Electrical Building+  Basic is the ideal entry-level solution. Its numerous functions and really attractive price make it an easily accessible choice for individual electricians or construction companies involved in building electrics installations.



SEE Electrical Building +  Standard




A high value tool for creating professional designs of electrical installations and distribution diagrams. In addition to the functionality of Basic, See Electrical Building+ STANDARD offers a wider range of features to  assist in the rapid production and effective management of drawings, speeding up productivity.


Module Cabinet Layout 


SEE Electrical Cabinet Layout, is an add-on module to Building + STANDARD, enabling the production of accurate 2D panel layout drawings . Offers a comprehensive set of tools that help electricians to easily complete the layout by selecting components already placed in distribution diagrams.




User-friendly and intuitive, all the SEE Electrical Building + commands have been specifically designed for the creation of electrical projects. Direct access to symbol libraries, templates and drawing tools enable users, even occasional, to be operational and productive from the first day.
The software is compatible with the stylus control function of Windows 7, 8 and 10, and works with the latest Windows environment that ensures optimal readability whilst enabling rapid access to all the functions.



SEE Electrical Building + enables you to create or import the architectural ground-plan, to create the electrical plans and the routing of connecting cables, and then generate the distribution diagrams of the panels in single-line format. With the addition of the 2D Cabinet Layout module, detailed panel drawings can be produced with accurate dimensions.
All this functionality within the same application ensures significant time saving in design and clear accurate documentation to complete the job.



See Electrical Building + is the most comprehensive environment for building electrics.
SEE Electrical building +  offers the possibility to define all necessary information (electrical properties, cabling, circuits and layout) on the building ground plan. The Distribution Diagrams are automatically generated based on this information. Panel Layout drawings can be produced quickly and in synchronization with the electrical plans.



SEE Electrical Building +  is offered in various modules in order to suit the users’ needs:

  • Building +  Basic: provides the main functions for the electrical plan designs.
  • Building + Standard: provides an extended range of functions for the electrical plans and material selection (type database) plus the automatic creation of distribution diagrams.
  • 2D Cabinet Layout: add-on module for the production of panel layouts.

In each module, project management functionality allows efficient working methods (automatic numbering of the sheets, title blocks filling, automatic generation of material lists from the schemes, exporting lists in Excel format ...).
