We make data work for architects and project teams

Our expert surveyors work collaboratively with our clients to deliver measured surveys for projects ranging from individual buildings to large estates.

Operating across the UK and Europe, we conduct measured, laser, Matterport, As Built, drone and topographic surveys – and provide point clouds, 2D plans and 3D & BIM models.

We can also survey historic buildings to Historic England’s requirements.

In addition, we create and analyse asset-based information within a GIS to help achieve asset management efficiencies and savings.

Surveys for Santander's national 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 - saving cost and time as well.
