about us

Fully Managed Services

From two family homes in 1979 on the Hoo Peninsula and Gravesend in Kent, CC Cousins as we know it now, was born, a family-run business with family values. Proudly co-owned by two brothers and the original company founders, we have continued to expand and diversify while never changing the principles of who we are, a modern forward-thinking company with old-fashioned family values.

Drawing on a wealth of experience

The tale of CC Cousins, as we recognise it today, traces back to its founding companies, with the earliest dating back to 1979. Two brothers have been steering the ship of the business since its inception. Our managing directors initially operated their own distinct enterprises. One primarily focused on electrical work under the banner of Cousins Construction Electrical Services, whilst the other adeptly managed a road surfacing business in central London.

Cousins Construction emerged through the collaborative efforts of the two brothers, amalgamating their unique skills and business ventures into a singular entity. A transformative rebranding in 2006 marked the birth of CC Cousins LTD as we know it today. Throughout these changes, the company’s core essence has remained strong. Today, CC Cousins stands as a dynamic organisation specialising in facilities maintenance, offering a comprehensive range of services spanning various sectors. These enduring core values and steadfast commitment have served as the company’s foundation, remaining constant throughout its journey of evolution, rebranding, and expansion.
