FORT COLLINS — CPP Inc. in Fort Collins has signed a lease for property in Windsor where it will consolidate its corporate headquarters and wind-tunnel testing operations.
CPP Inc., an employee-owned company doing business as CPP Wind Engineering & Air Quality Consultants, aids building owners, architects and engineers around the globe by helping them understand how considering wind’s effect can improve building design.
Real estate can be a force for good, and that’s exactly what real estate developer, Brinkman, is trying to do with their recent achievement of B Corp Certification. After over a year of rigorous testing of their social and environmental practices, Brinkman earned certification last week.
The company will be moving its headquarters from 2400 Midpoint Drive in Fort Collins to 7365 Greendale Road in Windsor, where it will also set up operations to conduct wind-tunnel testing, computer simulations and technical analyses for clients. The company operates a wind-tunnel testing facility at another location in Fort Collins that will be moved to Windsor. The company also has a testing facility in Sydney, Australia.
CPP Inc. has more than 100 employees worldwide, and it has yet to determine how many employees will be in Windsor, according to a company spokeswoman.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to get back together under one roof,” said Laura Knight, CPP’s director of finance. CPP plans to be fully operational in Windsor by third quarter 2019.
Peter Kast, Annah Moore and Matt Patyk with CBRE Group Inc.’s office in Fort Collins represented CPP in leasing the space from Windsor Center LLC.
“CBRE truly understood our needs and found us a location that we get to help design and make our own, while keeping us headquartered in Northern Colorado, Knight said.
Patyk said the CBRE team found a development project in the works for CPP.
“Balancing incongruent lease expirations for CPP’s current office and wind-tunnel operations, we initially explored build-to-suit projects, sites for purchase as well as options that would continue operations separately,” Patyk said. “In the end, we identified a development project in the works that perfectly met CPP’s needs for location, size and rent.”
