When it comes to service, process and people, CET is the partners of choice. Our hallmark characteristics are quality, reliability and outstanding service.

Our highly skilled personnel are always prepared to go the extra mile to deliver excellence; it’s a cultural thing. As a result, we offer an unrivalled nationwide service that customers can trust; delivered by some of the most experienced professionals and technical staff in the business.

Our Story

Established in 1988, CET began as a materials testing house and quality assurance service for the Construction industry. Since then, we’ve grown exponentially through organic expansion and acquisition. Through the natural connection between materials testing and subsidence investigation, we then grew our Property Assurance division, serving as an outsourcing partner for some of the biggest and best known insurers in the UK.

In the last two years, we’ve more than doubled in size and seen two distinct divisions flourish into successful businesses. In 2019, we began the process of formally splitting our Infrastructure (CET Infrastructure and Construction Testing Solutions) and Property Assurance divisions (CET Property Assurance), to better serve the needs of our customers. The project to split our businesses completed on 1st April 2020.

Today, CET looks after the Home Emergency policies for 1 in 4 UK properties, delivering a service on behalf of household names such as LV, Natwest and Direct Line.

Our Vision

To be the leader of every market we operate in through innovation and by exceeding service delivery expectations.

Our Mission

To reject ‘average’, aim for excellence and exceed expectations by keeping our promises and giving our all at all times and across all of our services – from testing and investigation, through to emergency response and resolution.

Our Values


CET does the right thing for customers, always – and that means creating bespoke services, keeping them informed, treating them fairly and always delivering on promises. Whatever the challenge, we roll up our sleeves, get stuck in and sort it out quickly. We work hard and won’t stop until we’ve finished the job to the customer’s satisfaction.


CET has a proven track-record and accreditations in each of the areas in which we operate: materials testing, environmental consultancy, site and subsidence investigation, drainage and emergency response. Translated into knowledge and right first time advice, this expertise enables us to give customers a high-quality experience.


Because CET’s services are
inter-connected, they’re quickly able to become interdependent. This is especially valuable at peak times, when projects and workloads increase significantly due to seasonal or other extraordinary factors. At such times, we pull together effectively to share resources and equipment to meet all needs.
