Paul Ponwaye, John Roberts Architects Ltd

The Lincoln Central Market project was our first experience of using CADS, we were delighted with how efficiently they transformed our point cloud survey into a Revit® model of the Grade II Listed Market building.

We would not hesitate in using their very capable services again.


Collaborate with our experienced surveyors & Revit® modellers

With over 35 years of experience, our professional team of surveyors process scan data to create highly complex Revit building models as well as plans, sections and elevations.

Recent examples of such projects include:

Measured building surveys

Creating an accurate BIM-ready Revit® building model swiftly

Using BIM authoring software such as Revit®, we quickly turn the point cloud data file into a BIM-ready 3D model of the facility. You can then practically interrogate the model and start working on developing the architectural designs.

The point cloud data files can also be imported into Autodesk Inventor and used in the design of digital prototypes.

To avoid unnecessary work, delays and costs we work with you to ensure these deliverables are defined in the specification brief. We ensure we listen to your requirements carefully before starting projects, so you’re comfortable knowing we can provide you with what you need.

Efficiently capture large data with our laser scanners & phased delivery

Using the latest technology, our expert surveyors are proficient in capturing and managing the large amounts of data created by the laser scanner.

We provide access to the data via SCENE WebShare while we are preparing the final plans and models. This also means we can phase delivery of the survey information as the project progresses without the need for costly return visits to site.

We appointed CADS as our survey experts on the Chelmsford Leisure Centre project as we knew the team had the expertise we required in laser scanning and modelling a project of this size. We chose to involve them in the design strategy as we knew they would add valuable and professional insight.

Receive additional architectural plans, sections and elevations with the Revit building model

Alongside the Revit building model, the deliverables from survey scan data include 2D CAD plans, sections and elevations.

We create these CAD drawings to varying levels of detail in line with your budget, timescale and specification. This includes creating CGI architectural visuals if you need them.

Industry standard quality of work to deliver accurate, cost-effective models & surveys

Working in accordance with relevant professional and industry standards, together with our own exacting ISO 9001 certified processes, we deliver accurate data that you can depend upon.

We recognise the importance of developing good lines of communication from the very first point of contact. By understanding the full scope of your project we can provide expert technical advice. In doing so, you receive the best service and a practical cost-effective output for the project in the short term and long term.
