Combine this with a huge love for the outdoors and seeing other people enjoying the benefits of a modern, functional, family home. and there was only one career option – building. Alvin’s first taste of the construction industry came through a building apprenticeship course at MIT. This led to a trade qualification where the primary focus was extensions. During this time he was taught the old-school values and craftsmanship skills that has led to the flawless results that CHE achieves on a consistent basis After running over 203 projects and overcoming just about every problem imaginable, we can guarantee that Alvin has the solution, or knows somebody who does, for any obstacle that we might encounter during your project.
