Sectors of Work
CDP are able to offer a full range of MEP services with the belief that the right design with the right decisions will avoid problems later on in the construction phase. Therefore we work tirelessly with our design partners to agree co-ordinated concepts, space planning and legislative compliance to ensure design decisions are fully agreed prior to the construction stage.
We have worked on a variety of offices ranging from corporate headquarters to small office units.
