When you purchase a CAD solution through Cadplan, you are not just purchasing a product, you are purchasing into a relationship with our team of dedicated industry professionals.
Cadplan was founded by Marek Brandstatter in 1988. The company’s initial focus was on the development of software tools and third party applications for the AutoCAD and Architectural market.
We also provide training at our Autodesk Authorised Training Centre as well as dedicated after-sales support through various mediums.
- Our current accreditations are PSP (Premier Solutions Provider Building Solutions) and ATC (Autodesk Training Centre).
- We supply solutions to the Building industry in Gauteng and surrounding areas and have consistently been number one AEC reseller in this area for the past 5 years.
- We were also the first Accredited Autodesk Revit Reseller in South Africa.
Our target clients within the industry are (but are not limited to) Architects, Structural Engineers, Building Contractors, Interior Designers and Landscape Architects.
The introduction of Autodesk Revit to the South African market continues to be our biggest opportunity.
It is our intention to tackle the challenge of educating the South African market about Revit’s long term benefits and the inherent return on investment for the client.
Cadplan’s post sales support has empowered us to create successful and satisfied clients within the market place. We have already published numerous client success stories on our website in addition to the Autodesk marketing brochure.
Since Cadplan’s inception in 1988, Marek Brandstatter has had a vision for creating a leading Autodesk value-added BSD reseller.
Run by a team of skilled professionals, Cadplan has taken this vision forward and continues to aim to be the best Revit and BSD Reseller in South Africa. Consistently offering outstanding service and the best Revit implementation in EMEA, Cadplan has remained dedicated to providing hundreds of previously non Autodesk users with meaningful and professional reasons to buy into the Autodesk Build Design menu of solutions.
In preparation for the arrival of Revit to the South African market, Marek gathered the most competent people in the CAD, sales and architectural arena. Together with his team, he worked round the clock to roll out Revit Courseware, Implementation Schemes and Sales & Marketing campaigns with an energy and momentum which continues to this day.
At Cadplan we do not tout a single mission statement but prefer to adapt around a series of statements to which we constantly strive to meet and on which we base all decisions and philosophies. These are:
Cadplan is a respected company
Where honesty, trust, good faith and professionalism are the cornerstones of how we should do business. Everyone we deal with is an equal partner and we deal straight.
Cadplan is a winning company
Where everyone is imbued with a spirit to win, to be passionate in whatever we do, to be the best, to never give up, to work harder than anyone else, to know that our best is better than anyone else’s best.
Cadplan is a caring company
Which cares about what it does and how it does it, which is always fair, and which respects every single person. We sincerely care about each and every client in our market space.
Cadplan will be one of Africa’s most admired Autodesk Resellers
Our clients have access to a monthly Focus Group meeting (covering AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture & Revit) held at our Training Centre, where the number of attendees has increased dramatically over the last year.
We offer free telephonic support by trained staff during office hours as well as host (and support) a world-class technical Online Forum. Both these services support all Autodesk products sold.
We also run regular group training sessions at our Training Centre as well as one-on-one and/or in-house support blocks for clients who need extra attention.
The client success stories posted on our website pay tribute to our efforts and achievements. Since the sale and implementation of our first Revit seat (to HP Potgieter Homebuilders) the sale and implementation of many more Revit seats have followed.
A short list of some of our successful Revit clients follows:
- A3 Architects (Pty) Ltd
- Bentel Associates International
- Neo Dimension
- Sheer Design
- Site Architects
- MBH Architects

- Alchemy Architects
We have an in-depth knowledge of the building industry from design concept to down the line building facilities management. We can therefore offer the best solutions through understanding, implementing and advising with best practice methods, whatever the customer’s requirements may be.
