CAD drawing resource for housing refurbishments

Philip Pank Partnership is a practice of chartered surveyors, construction and property consultants, with offices in London, Abingdon, West Malling and Brighton

The partnership works closely with a number of local authorities including 13 London boroughs and various housing associations. The company also helps developers identify relevant registered social landlords with a section 106 affordable housing requirement.

One of Philip Pank’s project surveyors, Luca Speroni, contacted CADS seeking a knowledgeable and professional CAD drawing resource that he could call on when workloads required.

Drawing support for council flat refurbishment

The first project where Philip Pank required CAD drawing support was for the refurbishment of three blocks of residential flats for one of their London Council clients.

For each of the three external refurbishments, Philip Pank required the preparation of drawings for planning submissions and for one of the block of flats, a building control application. Each project required the creation of existing drawings including plans and elevations from a combination of available information comprising pdf drawings, survey data, sketches and photos.

CADS created these drawing packages accurately, overcoming technical challenges such as file capability issues, and submitted the packages to Philip Pank in a timely manner.
