About Us

Commissioning & Design Solutions (CDS) was formed in 2008 to assist a major client in resourcing contractors for a construction project based in Alberta, Canada.  Since then, the business has grown and now employs a small team of specialist staff who have combined experience of over 12 years. 

Our aim is refreshingly simple: to offer clients a dedicated and comprehensive service. CDS's experience in the industry has taught us a great deal about people and organisations.

We believe that people are an organisation’s most important and powerful asset. In an environment where businesses are continually challenged to find ways of achieving competitive advantage, it is people who can truly make the difference between success and failure.
