Integrity, Innovation and Collaboration

CADS provides a comprehensive range of data-driven software and services to capture, manage and optimise space, whether you are a retailer, architect, contractor, public sector or commercial client.

From our offices in Great Yarmouth, Leeds, Wolverhampton and Edinburgh, we work collaboratively with clients across the UK and internationally to create profitable spaces that work. We take time to understand the challenges our clients are facing to ensure our software, services and survey data deliver value both for the initial project and the longer term.

Retail space planning expertise

Working for many well-known names on the high street, we help international retailers create profitable stores with our macro-space management software StoreSpace®, our StoreView® virtual tours, supported by the UK’s largest retail planning resource and surveyors working throughout the UK.

Professional surveying services

While working for construction clients, our surveyors provide professional surveying services including measured surveys and GIS asset information through to BIM models and design coordination.  If you have a challenging project and need a surveying partner we can help you.

English Housing Survey national helpline

We also have an office in Edinburgh providing the National Helpline for the English Housing Survey (EHS) and Scottish Housing Survey (SHS) contracts and supporting our field-based surveyors and regional managers. The Housing Survey provides valuable information on housing stock that is used to monitor and develop government housing and energy-related policies across England and Scotland.

Collaborative working

We place a huge emphasis on collaborative working internally and with our clients and business partners. Forging such close and long-term relationships means we can truly understand clients needs and respond in the most effective way.

This is reflected in the way we work every day, and is enjoyably illustrated when team members who have moved on, return to work with us as clients in their new roles.

Innovative solutions

As a business we are continually developing and enhancing our technological capabilities and services – including our StoreSpace platform, StoreView application and our BIM capabilities. These together with our partnerships with external organisations are enabling us to deliver truly joined-up and insightful solutions for our clients.

Quality and integrity driving success

Confidence in the quality of our service and the integrity in the way we work are also essential to our success on the national and international stage, which is why we are proud to be accredited to ISO 9001:2015. If you would like to see our quality policy, do please get in touch.

I believe that by working with integrity, striving to find innovative solutions and enjoying collaboration, our great team at C A Design Services will continue to succeed in helping our clients succeed in the coming months and years.
