Reduced Resource Envelope versus Improved Performance

Work with us

Our work has been instrumental in shaping Estates Strategies and Masterplans and our insights have saved many of our clients a good deal of time, effort and energy in resolving seemingly intractable problems in the domains of space management and timetabling.


Our work is increasingly recognised as being innovative and highly effective in helping Universities sharpen their competitive edge in an increasingly challenging and dynamic market.  It can prove challenging to balance students’ satisfaction and financial health with adequate levels of estate investment. 


Our methods recognise that integrated planning is increasingly a critical success factor. 


We understand our clients exceptionally well and our collaborative approach works at the deep structure of the most difficult resource allocation problems. 


By working with us, our clients are able to address these problems in a cross-functional manner and engage the wider academic community with key strategic challenges.  


Our mission is to make every one of our clients more competitive and to strengthen the sector one project at a time.

Integrated Solutions for better performance

Enabling clients to tackle complex projects and challenging performance issues

“The TSAR analysis and the insights from the work CPB Projects carried out was powerful and profound. It has enabled Solent to reform its approach to planning space use and to drive towards tangible improvement in our curriculum and the estate which supports it.  I am happy to talk to any current or potential future clients”
