The CMS Group in 2020

There is no doubt that 2020 is a trying time for everyone.

In the Caribbean, transportation, supply and access have always been problematic.  
Our island states, with their unique characteristics, can be a construction challenge par excellence. So as we globally added COVID-19, this year’s project plans became, at one point, seemingly out of reach.

Construction sites lay idle as we began the process of creating and applying pandemic protocols to get everything working again, even with a heightened safety level.

Fortunately, the work of the CMS Group entails well defined production systems, with trained staff, who have specific roles in the overall process, as well as very detailed experience.  We require small crews and were able to apply social distancing and sanitisation measures quickly and easily.
As governments across the region began a slow and systematic reopening process, we were ready to return to work, at pace.

Not withstanding these difficulties, The CMS Group continues to develop its skills, contracts and support services, to achieve our industry development goals.

better science and quality in our finished products.

Our close working relationship with ATI allows a much deeper penetration into coastal refurbishment and defence, while our flagship foundation and installation service continues to expand exponentially, as more substantial projects recognise the time, cost, labour saving characteristics of Plug&Drive® DIP.

DIP has, single handedly, changed the landscape of regional construction, simply by ease of use, a small footprint, minimal installation specific tooling and a gentle learning curve.

This year, we have been remarkably fortunate to have encountered few storm conditions, severe enough to destroy, or chronically affect recovering infrastructure or economies. This in itself bodes well for the general construction industry and immediate developments, as long as we can continue to respect the protocols which protect lives and livelihoods.

We are nations of nature, culture, work, fun, sport and tourism, much of which have largely been on hold for almost a year.  So it is to be noted that recent vaccine announcements have brought optimism and energy to all sectors regionally, as this news most certainly impacts our economic, industrial, health, service and social structures.  

The CMS Group continues to bring our best ideas
and innovations to the table, to find solutions for today and the future.

Recently, as we began preparations for new coastal work in The Turks and Caicos Islands, we discovered a forgotten 30 year old shipwrecked tug, blocking our sea channel access.

Without further ado and some precarious diving, we attached strops and with the help of two front end loaders, dragged the rusted boat ashore from the sea bed, albeit in a number of awkward pieces.

Life always throws you unexpected challenges.  
It’s what you do next that counts.

As we look forward to a brighter, more productive new year, we invite all of our potential and existing customers to come with us, work with us and help build a much better Caribbean, through better thinking, organising and doing, all to higher standards..

We wish everyone who knows us the very best
for a prosperous, adventurous, successful and safe 2021.
