When you meet the people who work, or have worked, with the company it is clear that they work with CHAP and not for CHAP. CHAP has always encouraged team spirit, loyalty and respect for colleagues at all levels.
In February 1976, Alasdair Craigie, Ian Harper, Frank Anderson and Ian Philip opened for business. From the outset, one of the company’s main aims was to provide “a well balanced, fully integrated management…of civil engineering contracts.” In those early days, CHAP quickly earned and deserved their reputation in the civil engineering sector for top quality workmanship and successfully diversified into other construction related activities. CHAP’s evolution demonstrated the company had the ability and desire to adapt and change as the market dictated.
Today, CHAP Group is split into four main operating divisions; Construction, Homes, Quarries and Civils. The success of the company has largely been attributed to the hard work and loyalty of all its employees. The adoption of the motto ‘Setting the Standard’ starts at the very top of the Group and epitomises the CHAP approach to client service and its commitment to its staff. The CHAP name for quality and commitment has long been established.
Throughout its history CHAP has been an
enthusiastic employer of apprentices and is very proud not only of the number of tradesmen that have successfully learnt their trade with them but especially of those that continue to be employees of the company today. The company is immensely proud of their growing number of long service staff; over 100 have reached the milestone of 21 years’ service. The names of these loyal employees are proudly exhibited on display boards in the main office reception. The CHAP Group is a living and growing organisation and will continue to set the standards for years to come.
