Chilham Park Sponsor
The Company was established in 1946. Our head office and main company resources, together with our Joinery Workshops are based in Canterbury, Kent. We have two additional regional offices, based in Sandwich, Kent and Heathrow, which were initially set up to provide specific construction services for two major clients – relationships established now for over 15 years.
These offices have since now developed and have been established to allow us to fully service and support our regional workload throughout the South East. We enjoy working closely and on a pro-active basis with our Clients to achieve mutual objectives via various procurement routes, i.e. Traditional Contracting, Negotiation, Project Management and Design and Build. We are active members of the National Federation of Builders, NHBC, Construction Safety (South East) Limited and are also registered CORGI installers.
The nature of works undertaken can be summarised as follows: –
• General building and construction (main company activity)
• Specialist repairs and restoration historical and listed buildings
• Refurbishment and alterations
• Design and Build and specialist ‘Turn key’ projects
• Specialist Joinery manufacture
• High Specification Residential Developments
Company turnover is approximately £60 million per annum and we currently have a workforce approaching 220 employees.
The management, staff and workforce recognise the need to maintain their reputation for service and reliability and to continue to expand the company’s operations to remain competitive. To support the future strength of the Company, apprentice craftsmen are continually being trained.
Our clients include amongst others, Pfizer UK Ltd, Emirates, BAA, Virgin, Lloyds TSB Bank Plc, a major privately owned luxury Hotel Group (Elite Hotels) together with the Regional Health Authority. Our client base also includes an extensive portfolio of schools and educational establishments.
We enjoy excellent working relationships with many privately owned commercial clients throughout the county.
On the basis of our performance and non-contractual attitudes our success in the market is due to, and will remain, attributable to a firm commitment to quality and service, and can be gauged by the high percentage of further contracts obtained from satisfied clients.
