Rights of Light 

As the country begins to heave itself out of recession, one of the first industries to grow is the Construction Industry. Thanks to some big noise cases in 2005, 2006 and 2007, this means an upsurge in the need for 3D AutoCAD technicians and surveyors familiar with Rights of Light laws. (See our article on the Governments Rights To Light Proposal for more info.)

Right of Light, broadly speaking, is the attention that must be paid to surrounding buildings when constructing nearby to avoid robbing them of their natural light. The Rights of Light Act 1959 explains the issue in far more detail, but this is the general idea behind it.

Recent developments in applications for AutoCAD and Autodesk – such as MBS Waldram and SOL Tools – now allow 3D AutoCAD technicians to model buildings and their surroundings with Rights of Light in mind. This enables engineers and surveyors to assess Right of Light factors at the very beginning of the design stage.

CADagency is the UK’s leading recruitment agency in the Rights of Light sector both for surveying and CAD roles.

Working with clients all over the UK, we have developed a reputation for providing a truly personalised service both to candidates looking to move within the industry, and suitable experienced candidates.

With a deep understanding of what is involved in the design and legal aspects of the role, we are able to identify candidates from outside the industry with suitable 3D AutoCAD, BMS or Laser Scanning experience.

We ask candidates for specific design portfolios that highlight their ability to work on Rights of Light projects. Working with almost every Right of Light practice, as well as surveying practices looking to expand into the field, CADagency can provide a truly rounded service with years of experience recruiting in demanding environments.

Over 90% of our candidates we have placed rate their job satisfaction as Very Satisfied.
