Construction consultants driven by principles

It is no accident that this company was formed by its directors, all of whom wanted to know ‘what would good look like’ in providing services to the construction industry.  By bringing more than a century of experience all together, they did just that.

Every component part of this company shares that vision within its DNA: To deliver exceptional client solutions. To be precise, forthright, and unfailing. Where partner involvement is standard, and not an option. Where, innovation, forward thinking, and commitment to excellence is normal in achieving their clients’ goals.

Helping to build it better.


The Challenge​

A failed 365 migration, a back up system unable to scale with the company’s rapid growth. A DR plan out of line. Working with a complex infrastructure, without gateway security. IT was becoming the problem and not the solution.

  • Rapid staff expansion from 5 to 100+ employees
  • Hardware technologies that didn’t perform to a high standard
  • The complexity of running 16 virtual servers
  • Backups unable to quickly accommodate DR scenarios
  • A failed 365 migration, causing comms issues across the business
  • No Multi-factor authentication for remote access or emails
  • A reactionary IT strategy
  • No Cyber Security Accreditation
  • No business grade video conferencing solutions installed

“The service team have been a fantastic support to us throughout the pandemic.  We had 125 users working from home within 24 hours, each set up with Microsoft Teams and full access to our servers, ensuring that the continuity of service to our clients wasn’t compromised in any way.  

While we continue to work from home CNC have provided practical solutions to help us prepare for our return to the office. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend CNC as an IT service provider, and I look forward to continuing to work with them “
