Contract Building Services (Scotland) Ltd are passionate about their principles and about building good and lasting relationship with their clients. CBS was formed in 2008 from like-minded small building companies bringing together their many years of experience in order to provide a one stop shop Main Contracting business who could compete in a very demanding market and provide the type of service many clients were now expecting in the 21st century. Quality had become a marked influence in decision making by clients earlier this century and CBS fully understood its commitment to the standards required and the requirement to work closely together with its clients to achieve their common goals.
