Who are we?

A team of dedicated people who enjoy providing CAD support across a range of projects of all shapes and sizes

Rob Piper


Rob has been working in the construction industry and using AutoCAD for over 20 years. He setup RDPPlanningServices in 2021 to provide support for people who needed additional CAD outlets, and has since been involved in many residential and commercial projects for various clients.


I came across Rob through mutual contact, as we were in need of an architectural technician who could promptly put together some necessary plans at low cost to the client. Rob was the perfect fit – he was straight on it, organising a site visit, and swiftly understood the project. The plans were sent over (with no changes needed) in the space of a week! His communication throughout the project, even when he was out of the office, was quick and straight to the point. We’re very grateful to have worked with him and look forward to working together again in the future.
Rob and I have been working together in excess of 12 years on a wide and varied range of projects varying from large individual residences, both contemporary and traditional, to small extensions along with flatted developments. We have also worked together on multi-house projects/small estates and commercial developments.
His varied and comprehensive experience has contributed to designs and assisted in achieving planning permissions.
Robs understanding of the vaguaries of the planning process, the necessity to accommodate client requirements, and to assist with the architectural design elements whilst producing work of a high standard in a constricted time frame is very reassuring and dependable.

Rob joined us on the recommendation of a mutual contact. We were in need of some additional help in the CAD team due to maternity leave. We couldn’t have been happier. Rob fitted straight into the team and found his feet quickly with minimal fuss. After learning the ropes he was quickly into projects and helping to reduce the back log.
Along with working through the projects Rob also helped out with reorganising our internal procedures. He aided in putting templates, tool palettes and layer states into our system, whilst logging it all down in a new office procedures manual. 
Rob also worked alongside our QGIS team to help integrate the output into our CAD systems in an efficient manner. Rob also helped train our new Junior Technician to take over his role.
We will be keeping Rob in our contact list for when we need holiday cover or any additional updates to our procedures. On the whole we would fully recommend Rob to anybody who needs a ‘consultant’ on short or long term projects.
