Cadweb is a provider of electronic project management, project extranet, or construction collaboration technologies. The company is based in London, England, it was founded in 1995 and is among the longest-established of businesses in its field.

In 2003 Cadweb was one of the founder members of the Network of Construction Collaboration Technology Providers (NCCTP), today part of Constructing Excellence.

The last client–server version of Cadweb was released in 1999. A new web-based version named Cadweb.net, created in 2001, is now used instead. The extranet is used primarily in the construction industry to manage the exchange of project-related drawings and documents. The information is recorded on a searchable database so that users can find relevant information.

Depending upon the project between 6,000 and 8,000 individual items are published for every £(UK)1m that is spent on construction on the project (i.e. a project worth £(UK)10m which could represent a small five-storey office building, there would be between 60,000 and 80,000 files on the system by the end of the project).[citation needed]

Cadweb is certified to the International Standard ISO 27001; a standard setting out the requirements for an Information Security Management System.
