Director Carl Humpage said that has been supported by charter, commitment to put its five pillars of sustainability, innovation, social value, people, and clients at the heart of all it does.

Mr Humpage said: “We’ve had an incredibly strong year so far, with turnover in excess of 10 per cent over the previous year and a number of successful project tenders for new clients such as the University of Oxford and other prestigious clients.

“We are extremely proud of our staff and the support they have provided during the last year – they are true ambassadors of CPW.

“Therefore, the strength of our people with their experience and expertise as well as our quality services is what defines us, and our new brand – which includes a refreshed brand identity, logo, website, and office fit outs – really reflects this.

“We’ve had a fantastic year with a raft of new team members joining us.

“We’re particularly excited about our apprentices as we’re passionate about training the next generation and offering equal opportunities to all.

“We have a robust apprenticeship scheme and it’s something we’re looking forward to building upon in this new chapter.”

Mr Humpage said: “The rebrand marks a significant milestone in our 43-year history, especially moving away from the full company name of our founders.

“However, we wanted the name and brand to reflect the modern, sustainability focused, forward-thinking business that we are today.

“It also encompasses our aim to deliver truly amazing buildings that minimise their impact on the environment, while improving the lives of those who use them.

“To do this we have developed five pillars of activity, which are intrinsic to our business: sustainability, innovation, social value, our people, and our clients.

“The entire team is therefore looking forward to this new chapter in our history and building on this rebrand to expand our team and service offering to be the UK’s go-to sustainable M&E firm.”
