Here at CHC Construction, we are passionate about producing the best work. Please meet the team who achieve the results we are immensely proud of.
Managing Director/ Managing Surveyor
Initially qualifying as a Quantity Surveyor in 1991 Trevor has over 34 years' experience in construction management.
Trevor has successfully completed numerous design and build projects during his career, which has led to a genuine interest in architecture and design. With his extensive knowledge of construction technology and his eye for detail, he ensures that each of our projects run efficiently, to a high standard and on budget.
Responsible for the overall growth and the running of the company, Trevor, has worked hard to build a quality management team to continue his ethos. A true family man, Trevor, is a keen networker and supporter of the local community and charities. Personal interests include health and fitness, as well as watching a lot of rugby.
Having joined CHC in 2007, Gary brings with him some 20 years’ experience working in the residential construction sector.
Gary has a disproportionate amount of practical and technical knowledge of the industry, and with this, it soon saw him rising quickly up the ranks to site foreman. During these years, Gary successfully completed numerous quality jobs. With his positive and friendly approach, he soon became a favourite with both architects and clients alike, which earned him and CHC copious amounts of praise.
Promoted again in 2017 as our office-based Project Manager, Gary has quickly developed his managerial skills to be able to coordinate and deliver multiple projects. Personal interests include motorsports and spending quality time with family and friends.
Matt brings over 20 years’ experience in the residential and commercial sectors of construction.
He is responsible for delivering all our commercial and industrial projects, which are always very demanding. With his meticulous attention to detail and drive to understand the complexities of each project, Matt has built a highly deserved reputation as someone who “gets things done”.
Given his position, Matt has been the natural candidate within CHC to oversee all internal Health and Safety, which has proved invaluable when working with such clients as The Port of Tilbury. Personal interests include fishing and motorsports as well as spending quality time with his young family.
Office / Accounts Manager
With over 20 years’ experience within office management, Dawn has been part of CHC since its beginning in 2006.
An integral part of CHC, Dawn has been instrumental in working with Trevor over the years to develop and grow the business into the solid, successful and reputable company it is today.
As well as overseeing the smooth running of the office, Dawn heads up the accounts departments and is responsible for dealing with the company finances. Personal interests include running, hiking and theatre.
Marc joined CHC in 2016 as a qualified plumber and immediately demonstrated prominent traits for being a foreman.
With his outstanding leadership skills and positive work attitude, Marc was soon promoted to foreman status. With a background in both the Military and the Fire Service, he has bought a disciplined approach to our projects, which has helped with meeting deadlines and delivering consistent quality.
Despite working hard to deliver numerous projects over the last few years, Marc still found time to undertake and complete the mammoth task of being a fully qualified and registered Gas Engineer, which CHC are incredibly proud to have supported. Personal interests include Rugby and spending quality time with his family.
Harry has been a major part of the CHC Team since 2013. Still only a young man, Harry has quickly gained a disproportionate amount of knowledge and understanding of the construction industry.
His attention to detail and ability to coordinate all aspects of groundwork and general building has seen him quickly rise to that of Groundworks manager.
Harry regularly works closely with our project managers to provide on-site support and management where required. With a great understanding of Health and Safety, Harry is diligent and caring and is comfortable working within both the residential and commercial sectors. Personal interests include motorsports, travelling and spending time with his young family.
Senior Buyer/Personal Assistant
With construction running in her family, Emma was keen to continue being part of the industry and joining the team enabled her to do just that.
Her understanding of the construction industry has enabled her to quickly apply this knowledge to her role of Senior Buyer/Personal Assistant, making her a valued member of the CHC Construction team.
She has formed some great affiliations with our suppliers and communicates with them regularly, upholding the longstanding relationships we've built with them over the years.
Her understanding and knowledge of building products and the construction process has increased significantly since joining the team, which has enabled her to positively assist our project managers in their roles.
With her friendly and enthusiastic approach, she has been able to work closely with our clients to assist them in sourcing products for their specific projects, often saving them both time and money.
In her spare time, Emma's personal interests include watching Rugby and spending quality time with family and friends.

We were looking for a building contractor to bring plans for the renovation of our 1930's house to life, our architect recommended we speak to Trevor at CHC.
We were impressed with Trevor’s detailed cost analysis and supplier documentation, as well as finding him very friendly and personable – important factors for someone who would be sharing our home with us, as we planned to remain ‘on-site’ throughout the build.
The build was well planned and clearly communicated, the team were great and particularly considerate of leaving ‘site’ clean and tidy for us at the end of their day. They planned big dirty demolition jobs around our holidays and managed to time plumbing and electrical jobs around work and school schedules to impact us personally as little as possible. The Team were obviously experts in their trades, any problems were openly discussed and solutionised. They were also very open to discuss new ideas which, if within the realm of possibility(!) were seemingly easily accommodated.
Not only do we now have our dream home but we feel we’ve made some lovely friends along the way.
Many thanks to all at CHC for their hard work – you WILL be back for ‘Phase 2’ at some point!!

I am an Architect, and Developer and was looking for a builder who delivered outstanding quality builds to a budget. As an Architect, I am incredibly fussy about the finished product. I cannot fault the level of detail that Trevor and his team went to, to help me achieve the vision I had. As a developer, I have to constantly weigh up the cost of doing something versus the visual benefit. I am selling a product to make a profit but also want to look back with a sense of pride, of a build I have left as a legacy.
I pride myself in providing new housing which is not banal, and mainstream but every detail is thought through from the 2.7m floor to ceiling height on the ground floor, with crittall doors onto a courtyard, to the roof terrace with sea views.
Trevor took time out to help me with his quantity surveyor background and training to consider alternative materials for various areas, we looked at the cost benefit of artificial grass and hardwood decking versus composite decking and then the visual impact. Trevor, is unique in his ability to see and be able to understand the vision from the offset. I felt totally confident that he would have the same high standards that I would have. I would totally recommend Trevor to any new build developers, I am confident that Trevor and I will work on many future projects together. He has already been commissioned as our contractor for our next housing development to start in the next month.
