London Borough of Hackney – Hackney Learning Trust
In January Cad-Capture secured an exciting tender award with London Borough of Hackney, for the supply of measured building surveys for children’s centres, schools and early years and adult education. Hackney Learning Trust chose Cad-Capture because it needed a high quality service that could be relied upon to deliver excellent results.
Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
This month we are delighted to be adding Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to a growing number of our NHS clients experiencing the benefits of our innovative OccupEye system within their premises. The Trust is the largest provider of mental health, substance misuse and learning disabilities services in Derbyshire. Our OccupEye technology will allow the staff at the Trust to use space more efficiently, saving valuable NHS time and money.
Luton Borough Council
March delivered yet more success for our increasing number of projects with councils. Luton Borough Council came to Cad-Capture with a need for detailed asset surveys of its portfolio of premises. Our highly experienced surveyors and sophisticated technology made another council very happy.
Land Securities, a FTSE 100 company managing over 24 million sq ft of property, needed a way to make sure the space was being properly utilised. Land Securities purchased our OccupEye system to do this using the very latest automated workspace utilisation technology. The savings are enormous, especially when you’re dealing with such a large estate!
This month has been proof of how adaptable our innovative OccupEye technology can be. Our space utilisation technology has been deployed at Atos, an international information technology services company with annual revenue of € 8.6 billion and 76,300 employees in 52 countries. The OccupEye system will allow workspaces across the company to be used much more efficiently, saving vast sums of money.
London Borough of Islington
Cad-Capture has secured a 12 month contract to provide Right to Buy (RTB) CAD floor plans and location plans for London Borough of Islington. This is in addition to providing other building surveying and CAD services for Corporate Property Services. RTB is proving popular and with numbers increasing, Cad-Capture’s efficient and innovative solution is proving a hit with an increasing number of London Boroughs.
West Sussex County Council
The OccupEye revolution continues to benefit a growing list of councils with the latest space utilisation sensor deployment at West Sussex County Council. The local authority is deploying sensors across a number of its properties with the aim to maximise space efficiency and create cost savings through better utilisation.
Reading Borough Council
Cad-Capture continues to show excellent customer service and technical knowledge with the award of a significant building surveys contract for schools across the Reading Borough Council Local Authority area. The high quality comprehensive surveys, including measured surveys, asset inventories and suitability assessments, will give the council an in-depth accurate understanding of each schools’ crucial characteristics.
Middlesex University came top of the class by doubling the size of its OccupEye system to monitor twice the number of space at a time. The extra deployment will allow facilities managers to see where more space is being under or over utilised within the university, providing a backbone for decisions regarding property management.
The Future of Public Sector Property and Estates Conference
Don’t forget to buy your tickets for “The Future of Public Sector Property and Estates Conference 2014” at the University of Salford.

Delegates who will have an interest in this event will include heads of facilities management, asset managers, business manager, directors of property, finance directors, heads of shared services, directors of corporate services, heads of sustainability, heads of property services and heads of development. We will be providing an insight into how our space utilisation sensor technology, OccupEye, is being deployed across the public sector service spectrum to great effect.
Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust
Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust has recently joined our growing list of NHS clients of our workspace monitoring system “OccupEye”. The trust provides community health, specialist mental health and learning disability services for people across the south of England. Being the largest provider of these types of services in the UK, the trust employs approximately 10,000 staff over 200 sites within Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Our innovative system will help the trust to improve space utilisation within their workspace, meeting and consulting rooms, reducing unused space whilst saving valuable NHS time and money.
OccupEye Shines Light On Library Space
This month Cad-Capture’s sensor technology, OccupEye, featured in Premises and Facilities Management magazine following the deployment of OccupEye at Birkbeck – University of London. The article discusses how students and facilities managers have benefited from OccupEye at the university. Sensors have been deployed on all four floors of the library at Birkbeck, with the aim to dispel the myth from students that the library was overcrowded due to lack of space. Since deployment of OccupEye, reports have shown that there was not a lack of space. However, there were more popular areas of the library. In order to show students where available spaces are within the library, live floor plans and numbers of available spaces on each floor can be seen via a mobile application on student’s mobiles, as well as being displayed on screens outside the library. Complaints about lack of space have now been diminished, and students can see exactly where available spaces are, without wasting time walking around each floor of the library.

Imperial College London
Following a competitive tender, Cad-Capture has been selected by Imperial College London to provide sensor technology to monitor attendance levels within lecture theatres. Cad-Capture’s people counting system, OccupEye Flow, will count the number of students in and out of lecture theatres and work out the number of people inside at all times. The data captured using individual door sensors can evaluate whether rooms are used efficiently compared to capacity, as well providing reports to support Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) Estates Management Record (EMR) returns.
