Reducing Complexity
in Complex Projects

Our experienced surveyors offer accurate & reliable laser surveys delivered as 3D Revit models that can be integrated into your BIM process
Operating throughout the UK and into Europe we work collaboratively with our clients to develop the survey specification before undertaking complex surveys of individual buildings or large estates.

We reliably turnaround multiple site surveys and drawing packages for large roll-out programmes, as well as undertaking historic building surveys to meet Historic England’s requirements.

We also help clients to create, maintain and analyse asset-based information within a GIS to achieve asset management cost and efficient savings.

Measured surveys for Santander’s UK-wide refurbishment programme

"CADS provided an accurate survey of each building prior to the Design Team producing any schemes or scoping meetings taking place. This gave us the confidence that our global design could be achieved in each location at a much earlier stage in the programme, reducing the number of site visits and drawing revisions and saving cost and time as well."
