At CPS we offer our customers a service they will not find anywhere else in the services sector. We differentiate ourselves from the competition by adding value to our clients though a range of services. It’s about providing products and processes for our customers that go beyond the norm, to drive down costs and timescales – without impinging on quality. We do this in a number of ways:
CPS’s temporary boiler capability is an essential part of the service. We have our own fleet of portable boiler systems that provide replacement heating and hot water at short notice, usually deliverable within 24 hours of breakdown. This can be vital in emergency situations, if equipment fails and services need to be restored as quickly as possible. But it’s also a major advantage when it comes to pre-planned construction work. With a reliable stand-in system taking the strain, we can get on with the job in hand: stripping out the old parts, designing and manufacturing a new system, and then installing it – all with the least possible disruption to your workforce, facilities or business.
We prefabricate our M&E products off-site wherever possible. . This provides a number of key benefits. It ensures quality and safety, as the manufacture of these products takes place in a controlled environment with strict quality assurance procedures. By reducing on-site labour and eliminating delays, it also greatly speeds up the programme – sometimes halving the time it would take to do the same work on-site, this means these savings can be passed to our clients giving them value and ultimately cost certainty.
Though our historical roots are in mechanical installations, today CPS operates as a wide-ranging building services company. As such, we often act as the Principal Contractor for our clients, handling everything from the design and installation though to the handover of the completed project and then the ongoing maintenance. From a customer’s perspective, this has several clear advantages. Firstly it provides a single point of contact on a project rather than multiple personnel across multiple companies; a dedicated Construction Manager oversees the day-to-day running of the programme and keeps you updated on progress. Secondly, it reduces costs by avoiding the chain of mark-ups that inevitably happens when companies parcel up the construction elements and subcontract them out. CPS is a one-stop solution for your project.
