CS Design Software rebrands as CloudScapes

Powerful cloud-integrated BIM for landscape technology

CS Design Software have been the leading landscape design software experts for over three decades. Champions of BIM for landscape since its earliest days, the company has rebranded this month (October 2021) as CloudScapes.  The Nottingham-based company has transformed its suite of stand-alone computer-aided design programs. The powerful cloud-integrated BIM resources using Autodesk technology in Revit® and AutoCAD® have been developed over the last five years.  This brand rejuvenation reflects a much clearer image of its provision of cloud-based technologies, platforms and intuitive tools for landscape design professionals.

Cloudscapes 3D environment

Create, collaborate and co-ordinate your landscape designs in Revit®

3D modelling, palette building, enhanced reporting and access to the industry protocols come as standard in its flagship software program, CS ArtisanRV. Launched in 2015, RV is the first Cloud-based software solution to enable landscape Revit® integration.

The original landscape design resource CS Artisan has been continually developed since the early 1990s. It has retained its focus on delivering an automated information system to improve efficiencies in landscape practices using AutoCAD®.

Embracing technological advances and mobile working practices, CloudScapes also deliver online digital services via cloud-based apps. These include the National Plant Specification (NPS)CS FloraCS Helios and Product Data Templates (PDT).

Truly intuitive, powerful tools for landscape design professionals

Cloudscapes produce powerful cloud-based landscape design software based on Autodesk technology in Revit® and AutoCAD®. The suite of cloud-based software solutions has been designed and supported by landscape experts over the last 30 years. These are regarded by landscape architects and design professionals across the UK and globally as the must-have design tools.

Heralding the new branding and the 30-year anniversary is CloudScapes founder and Director Tim Calnan. Tim will be stepping onto a virtual stage as Sponsor of the Excellence in Visualisation and Digital Practice Award at the Landscape Institute Awards 2021 this November.  Celebrating CloudScapes new image and vision, Tim is keen to draw parallels between the company values and those of the Institute:

“CloudScapes – trading previously as CS Design – has empowered landscape professionals with innovative technology.  Listening to, learning from and enabling the landscape design world to engage fully in new processes and project delivery led us to develop the first cloud-based Revit® landscape solution, ArtisanRV – and CloudScapes will take us forward with landscape architects who are looking to create, collaborate and co-ordinate at the forefront using Revit® in a fully-informed 3D model environment.”
