Our ability to provide first class refurbishment services has enabled us to develop an outstanding working relationship with tCG. We are proud to have worked and grown alongside tCG since our inception. During this time, we have gained extensive knowledge and experience working with each of the Group’s trading businesses, and we believe this has allowed us to develop a comprehensive understanding of service requirements.

The following is a summary of the services CCNE provide:

  • Construction

We employ a wide range of highly skilled tradesmen which includes bricklayers, plasterers, joiners, painters and decorators, ground workers and roofers. This enables us to carry out all aspects of building work from beginning to end without relying on sub contractors.


  • Electricians


Our approved electricians carry out electrical installation, testing and repairs to current regulations (including IT installation works).  CCNE is a member of the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC).


  • Fire Alarm Engineers


Fully qualified and experienced fire alarm engineers carry out installation, maintenance and testing, and commissioning work on conventional and addressable installations to BS 5839.


  • Emergency Lighting


We install, maintain and commission all types of emergency lighting, including escape lighting, standby lighting, open area lighting and final exit lighting to BS 5266:2011.


  • Plumbing and Heating


Our approved plumbing and heating engineers carry out plumbing, heating, gas and waste installation and maintenance works. All our engineers are on the Gas Safe register and carry out work to the highest standard.


CCNE holds a number of accreditations, including and not limited to Gas Safe, NICEIC, Chas, Altius and Constructionline, and all of our staff are CRB certified. This has kept us in line with industry standards and allowed us to broaden our client base.


We hold extensive files on Co-operative properties within our region, and have now created asset registers for fire alarm installations and emergency lighting which assist us in highlighting potential problem areas.


Our commitment to developing and improving our service delivery can be demonstrated in many ways. We have already introduced new streamlined procedures and have provided numerous cost and efficiency savings. We are committed to sustainability and the introduction of new technologies.


This has been proven by our electrical division, who have worked alongside tCG to deliver ‘energy retro-fit’ lighting schemes across the North region. This involved a full redesign of store lighting to reduce energy consumption and enhance ambient levels.


We will continue to provide a first class service to tCG with a view to strengthening and expanding our position as a core supplier.  As we continuously strive to innovate and improve services, we will look for new ways to develop our business, which will enable us to secure a mutually beneficial long-term future.


CCNE is constantly striving for new ways to develop its core business, training, management and employees using its ethically and socially aware approach to the service we provide to all our existing and new customers. We will continue to seek out and test new environmentally aware initiatives to further enhance our business relationships.
