CTS recently obtained a cyber security certificate which shows the business has achieved a robust level of security that provides safe transferral of data in and out of the company.

Technology has become an increasingly integral aspect for CTS. From email correspondence and financial transactions, to professional networking and collaborative work documents, CTS rely on technology to be connected at all times and conduct work effectively.

The growth of the digital economy brings with it a growing number of cyber criminals using increasingly diverse and sophisticated attacks against businesses. Therefore, it is vital for more businesses to follow in the footsteps of CTS and introduce a robust, high level of cyber security.

An external security scan was carried out which scans any known weaknesses.  The recently acquired certificate protects the information that leaves CTS and information which is accepted must be of a certain level of encryption that has the least amount of known weaknesses ensuring confidential data is safe.

The certificate also entails that CTS follow a certain standard ensuring data is protected – such as password policies, access rights to certain locations etc.

The Minor Building Works Frameworks relate to works associated with the entire building maintenance to residential property including extensions, demolition, mechanical and electrical works

Eamonn Ryan, Managing Director said ‘We are delighted to get on this framework which builds on what we have achieved over the last four years on the delivery to five councils and many private councils. It is a credit to the team and testament to our ambitious.

This announcement comes on the back of recent success for CTS in being appointed to Fusion21’s Reactive Repairs & Maintenance and Empty Buildings Frameworks, worth a combined £290m over a four-year period.

CTS Projects continues to seize and embrace opportunities by expanding their offering right across the island of Ireland.

CTS Projects Ltd has been successfully appointed to Fusion21’s Reactive Repairs & Maintenance and Empty Buildings Frameworks, worth a combined £290m over a four-year period.

CTS was the only Northern Ireland company appointed.

The procurement frameworks are designed to support housing associations, local authorities and the wider public sector across the UK and Northern Ireland, with a range of reactive works and services – from out-of-hours reactive emergency repairs, and major void improvements to call handling services on a 24/7or out-of-hours basis.

Connaire McGreevy, managing director and founder of CTS Projects said:

“It was an extremely rigorous procedure but we are delighted to have been selected by Fusion21, for local delivery in Northern Ireland – and pleased to be one of only 37 highly skilled firms appointed.

“Our public sector clients often request additional work to be carried out and these frameworks give them and other Northern Ireland public sector bodies, a fast and compliant method of getting us to site, to deliver improvement and maintenance works.”

Peter Francis, director of operations at Fusion21 added: “Having listened to the views and experiences of our members, these national frameworks bring a modern, dynamic solution for procuring responsive repairs and void arrangements and can integrate both planned work and responsive programmes into one package when required.

“We’re delighted to have appointed a variety of firms to the frameworks – including CTS Projects Ltd – following a rigorous selection process.”

Fusion21 frameworks are run by technical specialists and only feature pre-qualified, accredited suppliers. They allow OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union) compliant contracts to be entered into by any of Northern Ireland’s public sector bodies via a direct award or a mini-tender competition. Fusion21 can either be involved in the full process, or allow CTS Projects and the public sector body to engage directly.

Fusion21 provides procurement services and OJEU compliant frameworks to the public sector. To date the firm has saved its members more than £177 million through the procurement process, created more than 5,000 jobs and generated £76 million of social value.

Leading facilities management and heating installation company CTS Projects has announced it has won a 3-year contract worth £4m with the Northern Ireland Housing Executive to carry out mechanical and electrical maintenance work across Belfast and other parts of Northern Ireland

The contract, which spans 61 buildings including offices and multi-stories, will allow CTS Projects to create 10 jobs while also safeguarding its supply chain locally.

The news comes at the end of what has been a successful year for CTS Projects. The contractor won a £77.6m contract with the Housing Executive in July and a £14m contract with four housing associations in April.

Serena Hylands, Assistant Managing Director of CTS Projects said: “We are delighted to have extended our relationship with the Housing Executive by securing this contract, which we believe is thanks to our innovative and competitive offering.

“This contract increases our market share and enables us to add 10 jobs to our current workforce. We started 2016 with 35 employees and we finish the year with 130 and still rising thanks to our recent high value contract wins.”

Housing Executive Belfast Regional Manager, Ian McCrickard, said; “I’d like to congratulate CTS Projects on their professionalism in securing this contract.

“Maintenance is such a key area of focus for us as we strive to keep our key buildings across our estate in top condition.

“We look forward to working with CTS Projects over the next three years.”

Northern Ireland’s leading heating and renewable energy installer, CTS Projects, has announced the creation of 32 new jobs in the last 18 months, almost doubling employee numbers to a total of 70.

The company, which is headquartered in Warrenpoint, has generated the jobs as a combined result of winning £14m in new contracts with four housing associations, plus a strategic diversification into private sector boiler servicing.

“Thanks to substantial new contracts with four housing associations, Alpha Housing, Fold Housing, Habinteg Housing and Triangle Housing and existing contracts with several other associations, nearly 40% of Northern Ireland’s social housing heating maintenance and upgrades are now carried out by CTS Projects,” said Connaire McGreevy, Managing Director of CTS Projects.

“Our growth strategy is to add value for our clients where others are not offering it. The huge investment we have made in IT to modernise the offering to our clients and potential clients has allowed us to grow and capture increased market share.

“We have invested more than £80,000 to introduce an innovative software system that offers real-time updates on boiler repairs – CTS is the only heating installer to offer this service and our client response rates are second to none as a result. As you can imagine, this is particularly important within social housing given the proportion of homes we’re called out to in which the elderly and vulnerable live.

“The other big development for us, which has also played a part in this job creation, is the recent launch of our services to the private sector. We’re now bringing our leading IT solutions and ‘black-van’ branded professionalism to manage gas and oil servicing for the private sector in a new facet to the business that we expect to grow very quickly,” Mr McGreevy added.

2016 has also seen office expansion and refurbishment at CTS Projects, with around £150,000 reinvested into this project.

“I am passionate about the business, and it’s incredibly important to me that the team is comprised of the most dynamic and motivated individuals who can make a contribution to our future growth and success.

“We will continue to recruit in 2016 and a big part of ensuring we attract the best talent is our ability to offer a range of employee benefits including training and development opportunities, and an appealing workspace, hence the work we’ve done to our headquarters,” added Mr McGreevy.

CTS Projects was named Northern Ireland’s Heating Installer of the Year by Installer magazine in March 2016 and is now in the running for the accolade of the UK’s Heating Installer of the Year.
