HISTORIC

 

As CPS is a Cambridgeshire based business we have had the opportunity to work within some of the most prestigious and renowned buildings in the UK. The University of Cambridge Estate Management team has regularly engaged CPS to install, refurbish and service its portfolio of internationally-recognised Grade 1 and 2 listed buildings. Cambridge University has 31 autonomous Colleges affiliated to it and CPS has had the opportunity to work with many of them such as St Johns, Downing and Sidney Sussex.

 

We also have a wealth of experience with ancient and listed buildings and churches across the region, from straightforward maintenance programmes to complicated and innovative building services systems. Heritage projects require extensive experience and a very high degree of care and thought at both the planning and execution phases.

 

We are specialists in phasing our work around the needs of our customers and the frequently large numbers of visitors who pass through their doors. Our ability to act as a Principal Contractor allows us to provide a one-stop solution for the entirety of a project, with an in-house, site-based Construction Manager to steward the work and provide daily updates on progress. Most crucially, CPS understands the complexities involved in upgrading and improving historically sensitive sites.

 

We conduct thorough pre-installation surveys, and work carefully to maintain the fine balance between concealing modern services and protecting the essential fabric and character of the building.
