Possible IT disruption Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th August

Hopefully this should not cause any problems with our service, but we apologise if you are affected.

Recent Testimonials.

John Drewett - Concrete Repairs

We first achieved our CHAS accreditation in 1998 and have found it very useful as a means of demonstrating that we comply with current health & safety law in the construction industry. CHAS is recognised across the whole of our industry so it reduces the amount of time and resources needed to pre-qualify for projects.

Mark Alder - MA Brickworks Ltd

CHAS is a great service which has helped my company become better and which has resulted in us winning more contracts of work. I have also recommended CHAS to other companies I work alongside who have now also become CHAS accredited.
