Our job is to make yours easier.


A mechanical engineer by trade, Eric Johnson noticed early in his career that the construction projects he worked on had contracts which never mentioned taking care of the owner. There was a fee that had to be made, and that was it. CPS was founded on the premise that the owners’ goals on a project need to be protected and met. CPS advises on their experiences and is able to foresee that if an item doesn’t happen today, it will have a major outcome on a project down the road. For more than 20 years, CPS has helped streamline the construction process for projects throughout the Southeast.


Project success means different things to each client – from value capital, timely delivery or your reputation. However you define success, we will match our focus to yours to ensure the risks that matter most to you are known and mitigated. Since our beginning, the CPS team has worked under a simple philosophy – protect the interest of the Owner.


Work with CPS and you get Principal level commitment on your project from start to finish. We have kept true to our roots: to not become too big that we get further removed from our owners day-to-day needs. We have deliberately grown our business over the past two decades at a steady and responsible pace: one client at a time. That is why our clients trust our people to define a vision as well as help them realize it. We solely represent the Owner, with no bias.
