Herewith is the complete picture.

If you want us for all our services or just some or one, our flexibility allows us to fit in with whichever services our Clients require.

We operate of course, in the UK but also Internationally as we have completed over 300 restaurants in the UK since 1993 and have overseas restaurants in The Netherlands, Egypt, Dubai and Hong Kong.


History does not record when Cotton Commercial Estate and Letting Agents were formed. History does, however, record the merger of Cotton Commercial with Thompson Cole, Chartered Quantity Surveyors in 1987.

Both practices having been established for many years under the stewardship of Bruce Duncan at Cotton Commercial; Clive Thompson and John Cole at Thompson Cole. Cotton Thompson Cole was formed.

Andrew Bridge, the current owner of Cotton Thompson Cole Ltd (CTC) joined the Partnership in 1993 to create the Building Surveying department and 2 months after joining, commenced guiding the business down a path of Design and Project Management with such Clients as Pizza Express, Liverpool Victoria Asset Management and Sun Life of Canada.

Following Bruce, Clive and John’s phase retirement from the business, Andrew ‘inherited’ the reigns and has continued to develop the Client base in the Food & Beverage, Property and Development and Biogas sectors.
