Who we are

Honest and sustainable design since 1998

CAD21 offers comprehensive building design services across the healthcare, life sciences, commercial, living, education, custody and justice, leisure and retail sectors. Our unique approach to project delivery and commitment to open and honest communication has helped us build long-standing relationships with our customers.

We don’t do things differently for the sake of it, we do it because we’ve thought of a better way of doing things. Garry Charlton - CAD21 Managing Director

Whatever the scale of your project, we handle each and every one with the same level of care and respect. 

We do this via a tried and tested approach to project delivery. When you embark on a project with CAD21, you can be confident that we’ll be able to tell you exactly what we’re doing and exactly what you can expect at every stage of the process.

It’s a system we’ve painstakingly developed after years’ of looking at what does and doesn’t work. 

Above all we are honest – everyone says it, but we live it. Richard Crampton - CAD21 Director

We never sit on our laurels. Instead, we strive to find innovative new solutions and approaches that improve the efficiency and sustainability of our work.

Our belief in fairness and transparency also translate to our people. We are proud to invest in our team and believe they are crucial to our success. Read more about our team.
