Columbus Kiosks Case Study

Working collaboratively to meet tight deadlines.

To meet tight deadlines on our client’s behalf, we completed the Design and Drawing pack for this project in just three weeks.

We supported build requirements on-site in our Reading-based design and development centre, enabling our client’s team to work on the project until completion. After a number of late nights and long weekends, the target delivery date was achieved.

Services Delivered

  • Design & technical engineering
  • Prototyping & product optimisation

Work Flow

Our size allows agility and meant we could provide our client with concept designs for approval, pushing through engineering, detailing and manufacturing pack phases within just three weeks.

Our management of the procurement and manufacturing phases benefited our client by reducing component delivery schedules and allowing more time to build, test and integrate, significantly mitigating project risk.

Value Added

The partnership approach we attach to all our undertakings meant we were happy to support our client beyond our design and mechanical build remit, by providing factory space with out-of-hours access. This enabled completion of electrical, software and integration activity on-site and was a significant factor in our client’s ability to achieve a challenging delivery and installation window.


“The CADceptual engineers delivered excellent work in very tight timescales.  They worked collaboratively with our own engineers from design to production, helping us to overcome all the technical challenges involved in the machine construction.”

Peter Sheen, Project Director, Sentios Technology Ltd


“From a Project Manager’s point of view, CADceptual were a delight to work with. Providing regular updates on timescales and being able to fit a large amount of work into a short period of time. Working through design issues in a systematic way and liaising with us, the kiosk experts, as needed. Bob is quick to respond to email/calls and was always on hand to discuss any concerns.”
