New Head Office for Construction Testing Solutions Limited (CTS)


As a result of our ongoing growth and expansion we are excited to announce that we have moved to our brand-newCTS Head Office, Leicester head office in Leicester.

CTS continues to realise our growth aspirations and in the past six months have acquired Nicholls Colton who have a further two locations in Leicester, and last December acquired CGL with seven locations across the UK and Ireland, giving us a nationwide network of nineteen laboratories and offices, offering a wide range of construction consulting and testing services. Having consolidated the CET Infrastructure business under the CTS brand at the end of 2020 we are now preparing the business for its next stage of growth.

Our Chief Executive Officer, Phil Coles commented:

‘We’re excited to have brought our new head office to Leicester and being adjacent to one of the Nicholls Colton offices means we are much closer to one of our key operating sites. The investment in our new headquarters underlines our strong commitment to growth and will help facilitate CTS’s long term growth aspirations. We are looking forward to joining the Leicester community and becoming a neighbour to the existing companies on the business park.”

After starting out in 2006 with just three people, CTS has come a long way to become what it is today with a 600 strong workforce and offering a wide range of construction testing services including, construction materials testing, structure and pavement surveys, geotechnical and geoenvironmental investigations, environmental chemistry, subsidence investigation and calibration testing.

Kev Tonge, Chief Operating Officer said: “We are very excited to be welcoming new members to our growing teams across the UK and feel very fortunate to have been able to continue to expand during the pandemic in what for many has been uncertain times. With our growing workforce, I am proud that we have some of the most experienced and talented people in the construction testing industry and I hope to see plenty more opportunities for growth in the coming years.”
