Measured Surveys

For over 30 years we have been applying our surveying expertise to projects across the UK and internationally – surveying individual buildings and entire estates.

In the fast-developing world of digital construction, data is power. Ensuring building data is accurate and complete means reworking, rising costs and project delays can be avoided.

Architects, contractors, landlords and project teams choose CADS to survey their building projects because we’re responsive, accurate and can help reduce project risk. We collect the building data that clients use to make informed decisions about their projects.
