Based in Suffolk, Cocksedge is a leading building contractor specialising in construction works for both domestic and commercial projects.

Cocksedge is divided into four divisions: construction, ABS electrical, ABS joinery and ABS mechanical. Each division allows Cocksedge to provide clients with the best level of service possible, whether that is constructing new buildings or installing industrial, commercial or domestic electrical systems.

Projects for Cocksedge have included Haverhill High School, Girton Pavillion, St James School Place and Cambridge Arts Theatre. Cocksedge has also been involved with a number of college projects including Queens College, Magdalene College and Sidney Sussex College.

A spokesperson for Cocksedge said:

“We are proud to be associated with many of the Cambridge University Colleges as well as a number of colleges across the East Anglia region.

With our own directly employed workforce we can dedicate highly skilled labour to a project consistently producing high quality work that is on time and within budget.”
