Favourite Project
The CTS project Ed is proudest of is Nutcracker for Atlanta Ballet, designed by Tom Pye; which was one of the most ambitious and large scale projects CTS had ever undertaken: Ed installed this with Abi Emmett (and Andy Pike) in Atlanta in the summer of 2018: One of the photos from this project feature on the website on our History and Timeline page.
