Who We Are
Based in Sonning, Berkshire and operating throughout the Midlands and Southern England, EPS is a Construction Management company specialising in Building Services, Construction and Fit out. Established in 1978, today the company is led by an experienced team of Senior Management professionals, supported by a select group of industry experts possessing the diverse knowledge and skills to enable us to manage the entire construction process and ensure successful project delivery from concept to completion.
The following timeline illustrates our company’s development over the past 40 years of project delivery.

Priding ourselves on providing our clients with a first-class end product and an excellent and reliable service, we base our approach to project delivery on three key elements:
Why EPS Ltd?
Best Project Programme
Establishing the Project Timeline is our primary focus; working closely with our clients to identify their objectives and requirements, translating these into a project programme (or delivery programme for multiple projects) while assessing and mitigating any potential time-related impacts and risks. At this early stage of project development we utilise our knowledge, experience and industry connections to optimise the project timeline, recognising that time is money and the potential that the construction process can be disruptive to our clients’ own business activities.
By planning, executing and constantly reviewing the forecasted outcomes of What (we do), Why (we are doing it), Where and When (the activity is taking place), How (our actions are being received by stakeholders), and Who (is responsible for what throughout the process of project development, implementation, delivery and closure), we ensure the development of Delivery Plan protecting both project integrity and our clients’ reputation. Frequent discussion with our clients upholds their confidence throughout each key stage of the project delivery, providing a well-planned methodology from initial survey through validation, offer and proposal, procurement, delivery, test and commission to handover and post completion support.
The Best Value
By developing a Project Cost Plan and Specification upholding our clients’ quality and cost expectations, whilst considering innovative design and product solutions to improve productivity with and making best use of modern construction methods and off-site manufacture wherever possible, we provide our clients with the best product and service for the best price. Our excellent commercial management and our reliable supply chain selection also contribute to delivering great value for money.
The right people,
in the right place,
at the right time.
If the right people are in the right place at the right time Project Delivery is a rewarding experience for everyone involved so for every project, task or assignment we undertake, we take the time and care to assemble a team of construction professionals with the appropriate skills, knowledge and experience. We employ only the best people and we take our obligations and responsibilities to our clients very seriously whether acting as Agent, Principal Designer, Principal Contractor or Building Services Provider. The Health, Safety and the Well-being of all those involved in or affected by our works is a major consideration during the careful selection of a team of staff and suppliers with the right mix of experience, skill, competence and compliance to support our clients’ specific needs.

We take our inspiration from the natural world . . .
Ants are intelligent and productive, industrious and extremely collaborative, they create communities without conflict and despite their diminutive size punch well above their weight. A single ant is capable of carrying up to 50 times its own weight, so by working together as a colony means they’re able to accomplish the seemingly impossible, in fact within a week an army of worker ants can construct an underground city big enough to house millions of their kind.
