Who are we?

CHF Construction is your local construction company, based in Wantage, Oxfordshire.

But we're not just about bricks and mortar. We're very much aware that we're building our customers' future, so appreciate the importance of clear, honest pricing and value for money.

How is CHF different?

The "Open Book" approach - our special pricing policy

In these difficult financial times where confidence in the money and property market in general is being eroded, we realised that a fresh new approach to building projects would give clients more confidence to proceed - so in 2011 we adopted our "open book" pricing approach. This means exactly what it says - we share all our costs and hard-won trade discounts with you, both for materials and labour charges.

We charge a weekly management fee, depending on the size of the project, and then a percentage mark-up across the board, which is fully agreed and transparent prior to the commencement of the project. One advantage of this way of working is that any extras or alterations are not subject to an inflated mark up.

We then simply agree an overall profit margin which applies right across the project, giving you confidence and peace of mind by passing on exceptional pricing direct from local suppliers to you.

Saving VAT

We also often manage to reduce the overall VAT bill for our projects, through a company project management approach. We take overall ownership for the entire project, but then allow you to pay much of the labour costs directly to the contractors, many of whom are not VAT registered. This could save you up to 20% on the total labour costs depending on the scale and nature of the project.

This innovative pricing policy has helped us grow our business and reputation over recent years, and we look forward to working with you.
