Egis, formerly Collaborative Project Management Services Limited (CPMS), was established in 2012 by a team of like-minded individuals with over 80 years of combined project delivery experience. Their ambition was to create a first-in-class project management and support services business that would truly put client’s needs at the heart of its work, simplify the complex and where people would enjoy working.

CPMS started as a specialist business in the management of Overhead Line projects and quickly became leader in this field.

In the 9 years that followed, CPMS grew into a multi-disciplinary business offering professional services in Programme & Project Management, Project Engineering, Project Controls and Governance, Safety, Assurance, Sustainability & Environment, managing over £500m of complex renewal and enhancement projects across the United Kingdom.

In 2017 CPMS expanded its capabilities to offer clients ‘Concept to completion’ Design, Construction and Digital Asset Management services, continuing the CPMS approach of building strong relationships with a wide range of rail, aviation and construction clients.

In February 2021, CPMS was acquired by Egis, a €1.22bn turnover worldwide engineering and construction business and became Egis Transport Solutions Limited, trading as Egis.

Egis has been involved in several projects in the UK and Ireland, including the Dublin tramway, the modernisation of the London Underground (tubelines), the extension of Midland Metro network, the upgrade of both the Irish and British rail networks’ signalling systems and, more recently, the design of the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro and the West Yorkshire Area Transport Plan.

The acquisition of CPMS enables Egis to strengthen its business influence in the UK and expand its operations to include a larger and more diverse portfolio of proven skills, expertise and experience, thus positioning itself as a key player within several industries. It also enables CPMS employees to further develop their career by accessing worldwide opportunities within the Egis Group of which they are now an integral part.

  • Egis is delighted to be Headline Sponsor for the Big Rail Diversity Challenge 2022, the only all-inclusive event in the UK rail industry calendar that brings together a cross section of our sector’s workforce and showcases the amazing diversity fostered by our industry.

    Egis is a people-focussed business that prides itself on having a workforce counting a 33% female ratio, 20% employees from BAME background, 28% employees with disabilities and 4% employees identifying as LGBTQ+ and a truly inclusive culture.

    Egis’ ability to create a diverse and inclusive environment for employees is evidenced by a 96% retention rate over the last 5 years. This is achieved through a solid EDI Action Plan where the leadership teams act as key drivers of Egis’ EDI effort, a wide range of HR policies and practices ensuring EDI is woven into the fabric of the business and a pro-active EDI Team.

    Egis was one the first companies to sign up to the WR-RIA EDI Charter 2021, to implement Online Safe Space on its website and to support White Ribbon.

    In the last 12 months, Egis has gone further afield to recruit diverse talent into rail, working with Transition and employing skilled professional refugees.
