In the current LHC era, a vast number of models for BSM physics are being tested. For predictions accurate enough to match experimental errors, theoretical calculations have to go beyond LO estimates. However, calculating one-loop corrections in BSM models involves many new particles with specific model dependent properties. Therefore, they are done largely by hand, or in partially–automated ways. I present a fully automated tool for the calculation of generic massive one-loop Feynman diagrams with four external particles, implemented as a module within the fully automated MadGolem framework. With this one can compute the NLO–QCD corrections to generic BSM heavy resonance production processes, for example in the context of supersymmetric theories.
