About Us

Capital Design Services, LLC (CDS) was founded on the principles of respect and appreciation for our clients.  We strive to deliver uncompromisingly high-quality work that exceeds your turnaround expectations. Our goal is not to just ‘do the work,’ but to develop and maintain long-lasting relationships with our clients by doing work the right way.

The founders and core team members at CDS have a combined 75+ years of experience providing A&E services for the wireless industry in the Pacific Northwest going back to 1995. During that time, we have worked for industry leading enterprises:  Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, American Tower, Crown Castle, Clearwire, Cricket, and many others. Because of the experience base of our core group, CDS can quickly get up to speed in understanding your projects and delivering to you what you need without any learning curve or ramp-up delays.

Due to our extensive industry experience, we have developed knowledge and relationships with all the jurisdictions in the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and Hawaii, and we know where the challenges and potential pitfalls lie.  Our knowledge and relationships provide you the security of planning and building permit products that will yield successful results, while minimizing the delay of time consuming jurisdictional checklists and comments during permitting approval.

CDS has invested in technology and people to ensure efficiency and quality. An example is the IKEgps technology.  These devices utilize global positioning satellites and laser technology to gather survey level spacial data that we incorporate into drawings and structural analyses, providing our clients with state-of-the-art levels of accuracy and detail.

CDS has long-standing, trusted relationships with architectural and engineering professionals, including; structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers, surveyors, geotechnical engineers, field mapping services, and environmental consultants.  This allows us to seamlessly provide our clients with a full suite of quality A&E services.
